  1. If you child wants to start playing hockey I would get him or her into an ADM program this season. No reason to do another learn to play session it just puts of his or her development a season. The reason I say this is that most ADM programs are 2 days a week and at the end of the day your child has to get on the ice to start developing. At this point, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the 3 programs. Pick one that fits your schedule and has a spot for you. At the end of the season you can reevaluate the situation. The only thing that can hinder your player’s development is

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to all. Stay safe and enjoy the day as best you can. Hopefully things will get better and we can get back to playing some out of state hockey by the beginning of 2021.

  5. Bacteria infections from wearing a mask too long? It’s been proven? If you’re going to make that claim, provide a reputable source please. It’s interesting how healthcare workers have survived all these years from the bacterial infections.

  6. So I am a snowflake, yet you are one one pissing and moaning about wearing a mask? Now that is funny, coming from a a well known MAGAidiot like yourself. Do what you want, Biff. Be a selfish asswipe and attend superspreader events sponsored by your fearless leader that's been hiding in a bunker all the while COVID-related deaths are over 1,500 a day and new cases rising to over 150K a day. Your BFF has mentally checked out and hasn't been seen in weeks while this pandemic reaches epic proportions, both locally and globally. Last time I looked he was still President until January 20th, but

  8. The fact that there isn't an enforcement mechanism for some of this, especially that which may occur in a private home, doesn't mean it isn't a legal order. I'm not sure that I think such things are or at least should be constitutional, but the order does have the force of law, even if it can't be enforced in some situations. You can be denied entry to a business for not wearing a mask; a business can lose their license for not complying with the order. Believe what you want. We are going to get shut down completely soon enough, but it's you guys who refuse to go along that are going to

  10. Actually, I think this letter would be a pretty effective deterrent. I've been saying it, even precovid, parent behavior is so bad it's just going to be easier to kick them out than continue to deal with all their BS. New York started doing it, gave the refs authority to kick everyone out. And they do it! Then you know who starts policing the bad apples? The other parents on the teams who want to watch their kids play. They tell the idiots to cut it out. We've all been on teams with those parents. If we complain to our team manager and organization, maybe then the bad apples get banned

  12. PPE has far and away the best skating/stick handling/ puck skills of anyone out there. Get your kid in a high level program if they are so inclined and keep them there. There is a difference between hockey players and kids that like to play hockey. Determining which kid you have is half the battle.

  13. Here is a simple diagram for youth player progression. Please note that your player does not need to make a stop on each stair in the stair case. If she's good enough, she can hop steps as long as she qualifies by age. If she is doing learn to play now at age 6, cross ice ADM is your next step. But only after she's doing really well in learn to play. You can continue in learn to play if you don't think she is competitive yet. Nothing wrong with that as long as she's getting lots of puck touches and developing good skills. If you want to try something different, you can look fo

  16. @Danner27, you do realize that your post there is an argument for not playing hockey at all, and no, in fact, an argument for not wearing masks while playing, right? I mean you do realize that is how the government would respond to that? I have to assume it's your position that hockey should be shut down, then. I respectfully disagree. As long as they're allowed to, my kids will want to keep playing, mask or no mask, and I'd bet that almost every player in the region will take that same position. Once the enforcement effort is clear it will level out.

  22. They can't...my son plays in PIHL and PAHL, and no player has caught covid from being at the rink. In fact, not one player has tested positive on either team to this point. The only disruption has been forced quarantining by the school district. ...and this is from his teams being at the rink 5-7 days/week.

  28. I know there have been some complaints from Baierl about spectators hanging around the lobby after games. For the most part, the masks and social distancing aren't an issue it's that loitering around waiting for their kid....just go outside, I don't understand how hard that is for people!

  29. I've been there for a couple PIHL games - JV games - and they weren't actively checking anyone, though we did see a rink staffer come through once at one of the games. I'd note that our spectators, and those of the opponents, were generally wearing masks and observing reasonable distancing, so that may be why they didn't complain.

  34. But it’s not an “order” or “mandate”. It’s a recommendation. The problem falls with liability towards personal business (ice rinks). The rinks should be making the call in regards to on ice masks, not any league.

  39. Hey TourneyGuy is that site you sent for the ATC League standings and info available anywhere yet? How is the league going at this point? I don't understand why organizations don't do a better job promoting themselves. Seems to me that you could attract more if you showed off your product more. This seems to be a problem with a lot of organizations. Not just Hockey! Anyway I still hope you guys succeed with this and give PIHL a run for the money.

  40. The overall ranking lists all U18 teams, regardless of level of play. The tournament bound ranking lists teams who are either eligible to participate in or declared intentions in playing the Tier 1 USA National Championship tournament. PPE went from 6th in overall ranking to 2nd in tournament ranking because there are 3 Upper Midwest HS Elite Hockey League teams, plus Northstar Christian Academy (NAPHL) ahead of them. All four of these teams are ineligible for the tier 1 tournament for one reason or another. MN primarily recognizes Shattuck as the only true tier 1 team in the state.

  41. I think the Thanksgiving tournaments will be the true test of what’s to come with the abundance of out of town teams that typically attend these events. I’m going to say the weekend before though and I hope I’m wrong.

  42. Agree with this totally. Been on several teams where the coach and the manager address parent problems at the beginning of the season, enforce the rules when broken, and it has been a very enjoyable experience.

  43. Whoever works there needs to be given explicit authority to tell anyone not following mask/distance rules to leave the premises. And told that they need to do it. If there's a problem, call the police. They're private property rinks, so just throw them out. If someone walked in without pants, it's the same thing. Make them leave. If a continuing issue with the sane people, ban them from entry for 30 days. End of story. Watch everyone start following the rules.

  48. And lets keep things in perspective here........it was a freaking D league game at close to midnight where many of the players were going to slam a 12'er in the parking lot after the game because they are not trying to relive their high school glory years and are just out there for some fun, competitive activity on the ice away from work and the kids.
