So this will be year 2 of no parity. Last year the 07 level wasn't bad, as far as even divisions, but with so much turnover heading into HS, I think this will be bad. How many teams will be handed a spot in platinum based on last year's team, but this year's model has no business playing up? Crazy to think they won't at least move teams around during the season.
What rock were you under? The divisions were a complete disaster last season. There were teams that won less than 5 games in each divisions and others that lost only 1 or 2. That's not competitive hockey, regardless of the level of play.
There is no U14 parity and it is being decided by committee. They will consider placement requests but ultimately the league will place the teams. They have not even decided how many divisions there are going to be as they are waiting on the organizations to turn in their requests for placement.
So this one straddles the youth and HS boards. Why have U14 parity dates been removed from the site? Will there be no parity this year? Any idea?
I think you meant to type, "Kid playing U14 for team X, what are the chances they'll play games after Thanksgiving?" Seriously, U14 is a sh%t show. 50% of the teams will look totally different after HS tryouts as smaller org's try and cobble together enough kids to play on game day and larger org's play alternates and call ups making parity a waste of time.
