For 2011 check out Americans (E9), Mass Bay(Indepenedent), Islanders (EHF) as they are all pretty competitive with each other. The lower level teams would be Vipers (EHF), Rangers (BHL), Shamrocks (EHF) those teams would be competitive with each other.

It is not impossible. I have seen multiple cases that kids join EHF elite from town or similar club level at 12/13 year old and continue to move up.
Give the Vipers a call.
