I know you’re still busy trying to make sure 2014 Timmy makes it out of his pull-ups and makes it to the toilet so I’ll go easy on you. 95% of the top kids in the area are involved in some sort of outside skills/ skating instruction/tournament team. That’s not a knock on the organization that’s developing the player, it’s just a sign of the times. The FOMO is real with hockey parents.
well kudos to these feeder programs. Give them some credit I'd say.
I think people forget that teams can't necessarily change a player. If a kid doesn't have talent or isn't really into the game no team or league can change that. If a player is truly talented it will work out for them.
