Some of these are ridiculous.

Re: USA hockey needs a new board

I dont know most are reasonable, except why would you need 4 officials for a youth game unless your trying to have it cost more? Cripes years back it was always just 2 and things were fine. These are just kids.

I believe this is aimed at District Tournaments leading to Nationals and Nationals. The 3 official (ref and 2 linespersons) system was mandated for Quarterfinals and Above at districts and at all Nationals. USA has consistently refused to authorize the 2 ref and 1 line for any age level. 1 ref means to much gets missed. Thus the 4 officials now at this age level.

Good luck to all the Youth kids at formerly called Midget age levels playing immediate offsides. HS isn't the Midget ages.

Just going to slow the game down. Great job USA Hockey.

Re: USA hockey needs a new board

Can anyone explain the elimination of delayed offsides at U14?

Re: USA hockey needs a new board

To train the player to regroup and make a play instead of just dumping it in.

Re: USA hockey needs a new board

I love that these guys sat down and decided "You know what, lets change how hockey is played"

Re: USA hockey needs a new board

Regroups and dump ins are both used at the highest levels. Kids need to learn when one is the right play vs the other. By taking away one option you are actually grooming less creative players. Tag up should be allowed from day 1.
