Simple answer is Money all these leagues are businesses with affiliations to organizations that are also for profit so decisions are made based of what’s best for their pockets and not necessarily the kids unfortunately. That’s why you see teams with auto bids to the top leagues getting smashed vs being moved down.
I also don't understand why teams from E9 an EHF can't play each other?
It does happen at tournaments occasionally but you will never see it on a large scale bc of egos.
So kids have to try out every year for these teams right ? I can't imagine an 8 year old will be on the same team until college. Maybe they don't improve and get cut, does that happen often ?
It is crazy in my eyes that there are a few teams that are in the selects division this year that were terrible last year and a lower division. They are just gonna be canon fodder for the few good teams that are in selects.
U18 this year, Flames, Boch, BJT Red. Not saying we are some type of super team but we were top 2 in standings and lost in Semis.
How’d you pull that off with out having playoffs in U-18 last year?
