Re: Showdown

Crazy
I want you to save this thread and in 4 years take a look at it again. In those 4 years, the team your kid is on now will likely have 1-2 kids still playing together. Some will quit, drop down a level or two or go to another team. The focus should be playing high school. D1 is extremely difficult to make. 1% make D1 of all the kids playing in the USA.
No one said anything about the teams staying together. But if a kid is truly good at 8 do you think they’ll become not good all of a sudden? I certainly have met some crazy parents who travel every weekend out of state for tourneys, some are even moving based on their young kid being talented. I certainly don’t wish anything bad on them but I do think it seems a bit soon to be so serious for the kids under 10.

Re: Showdown

Lets see, what can change,,, Size, speed, compete level, competition, social life... so on and so on. You guys will see. I used to be the same type of parent when my kid was 8. It would be awesome if 50 kids at this tournament made it tho. That would be a 30 for 30 story.

I would imagine this is true. If someone is amazing at hockey at 8 will they still be at 15? time will tell. I would think as long as they still keep enjoying it and trying hard it could work?

Played a soft team and good Minn team Friday and went 2-0. Played 2 very good teams Saturday and went 0-2 but both were very close. Lost their 5th game but it meaninglessness. That’s a good group with a couple of changes.

Lecavalier was also there.
