Re: Tough Decision Going into Bantam Minor

Kid has developed so much over the past 2 years with current team. Coaches have done wonders on and off the ice for my kid. He truly loves his team. Loves hockey. Not Fed Elite caliber but close. Not going to go prep or cath due to $. Good MA public high school player.

Couple kids on the team are moving teams and I wonder if I should follow suit. On the surface it looks like it is a very lateral move, but the parents of the moving kids seem to think otherwise. They think their kids are too good for current team.
Current team and team your considering moving to?......otherwise this post has zero context to comment on.
Read between the lines bozo. Doesn’t take a smart man figure out it is a 2010 in Platinum or E9 who is good but not Fed elite level. Let’s assume kids running to greener pastures are jumping leagues or moving to another team within.
I don't need to read between the lines Bozo, I have a Bantam minor currently so I'm more than aware what year the kids is. Where in my reply did I ask what year the player was? All I asked was current and possible future team. Maybe you should be the one focusing on reading rather that the smart a$$ reply!
Oh gosh the only thing worth doing in life is Fed Elite!

Where did he say you asked what year? And why would someone on this board post specific teams they are considering coming back to. Bozo.

If you kid is happy and like the coach and the coach has done a good job then stay. Don't follow - lead. Let other parents chase the dream.

Re: Tough Decision Going into Bantam Minor

Your kids coaches have done good and your kid is happy. Don’t move.

I don't know what that means. WC?

Re: Tough Decision Going into Bantam Minor

Winter club to Boston Advantage? Why bother, they can’t beat the BA 2011’s. Winter club to Boston American’s? Why bother, downward spiral because the coach is a wreck and struggles to keep players for more than a year.

I agree , the 10 Americans coach is the king of A holes.

No. The 2015 team is very good and so is the 2011 team.

JL's son is on the '15 team so I'm thinking he'll try and make sure they stay good.

At this point you seem to have a pretty realistic idea of where your son is going to end up, so on no particular order I would think about the following

Is the coaching better on Team B?
Are his closest friends moving to Team B?
Does the current program have a really weak U14 FS program and team B a strong one?
Is team B part of the program most of the Varsity players at his future HS use?
Is there any link between Team B and his high school program at the coaching level?

You like the coach, your player is developing, most importantly he's enjoying the experience so are there any advantages to leaving?

Re: Tough Decision Going into Bantam Minor

Do what works for you it sounds like your happy where you are and that your kid has developed. The color of the shirt or the name of the team doesnt matter when you get to High School nobodys asking it all evens out if you kid can play they will find them
