I help out on one of the u14 club teams We have an Amazon girl on our team. She's slow/lethargic she can't handle the puck or really shoot. But she intimidates some of the players with her size in her long hair..
Her parents think she's God's gift to hockey.. unfortunately she's already peaked. It's sad because its a waste of space as far as I'm concerned. She's not even close to elite other parents think it's politically correct to say she's good because if they criticized her and spoke the truth her parents would have a field day .. we have to be PC and pretend we like it. Next thing you know she's going to be playing on the Nauset boys team the way the world is headed
I know her!
This thread started out bad and amazingly has only gotten worse
Your son may play college hockey, but intermural and club hockey don't count.
There should be checking and no-checking leagues. It’s a pretty simple solution except then more boys would play the non-checking league and that would likely mean less spots for girls, who will want their own league again.
But at least having checking/non-checking would be more competitive and genderless which is what we all want right?
I personally have a son who just hadn’t grown yet. His skills are very high and he’s benefit from a more competitive league than playing on his town or bottom of the BHL team. It’s a shame having to go from top 2-3 in points on an EHF and E9 team to not playing “competitive” hockey because he simply hasn’t grown.
A non-checking league with better talent might be a great solution for players of any gender who want to develop and maintain skills.
What I find very ironic though is that the girls hockey world would absolutely never allow a boy to play on their teams. When it’s the other way, all hell breaks loose. Beside that, I don’t know many boys who wouldn’t bully another boy who plays for a girls team.
Again, the solution is really “hockey is for everyone”. Take out the gender. Checking or no-checking, and anyone can play whichever they want.
