    Wampa and PBsooks are one and the same. Both accounts are now banned. This user has repeatedly been warned to tone it down but they don't have any self control.

    Agree. It’s time to start blocking IP addresses. Of course, we can all do our part as well by not feeding the troll.

    When a user has been politely warned both in public and in private multiple times and does not listen, then we will do what's necessary to make this an enjoyable and useful site for people. This is the first (and hopefully the last) time that I've ever banned anyone. Usually a warning does the trick, but it didn't help here, and then this user opened a new account and continued the same behavior like they never listened to a word the moderators said about correcting their behavior. I have no idea why that user couldn't have a friendly debate on a topic and disagree, but things always escalated immediately to name calling and useless diatribes that served no purpose. Let's move on from this topic please.

    Maybe he is the 05 Renegade Coach from a few years back that masqueraded as a hockey mom.

    Let's get something straight @PawlBaxter, we DO NOT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANYONE. This isn't your forum. You are in our "SPACE". So if we don't like the way you post or the content of your posts, we will remove your posts or remove you. Such is the way any forum on planet earth operates. Just like Facebook, Twitter or any other online provider what you post is subject to review and removal. You have a total of 5 posts, none of which are very constructive or helpful. Since you're "new" to this forum maybe you ought to spend time reading posts and acting civil instead of the way you acted in some of your 5 posts. The posters you are having an issue with have been around a LONG time going way back to the old forum site before it was moved to modern software. They understand how the board operates and how to act appropriately. Keep complaining and you'll be gone. How we run this board is not up for discussion. Next person who registers with a name similar to one of the board admins - will be banned. Another post with references like "..Have failed athletes like themselves at home and raised weaklings that couldn’t keep up.." will get you banned. THREAD CLOSED

    That's completely false. The EHL and 3HL are both pay to play leagues. The 3HL is the pay to play "feeder" for the NAHL and the USPHL Premier is the pay to play "feeder" for the NCDC. Up until this year the Vengeance were in the 3HL. The only US Leagues which are "tuition free" are USHL, NAHL and NCDC.

    Why can't this Board just congratulate and move on? Someone always looking to deflate or a conspiracy or something. Or say nothing. 🤮

    Just saying the same thing as everyone else but it sounds like he is doing enough hockey already. Try lacrosse, soccer, baseball, swimming, volleyball, tennis, golf, or other activities during the summer.

    Agree with Saucey. Get him doing other sports until the age of 14. Then he can concentrate on just one. My son is now in his 20's and I wish I had did that with him. He will develop all muscle group. and I will respectively disagree on roller hockey. My kid did it from 2008 to 2013. Went to NARCH Nationals, State Wars, Team USA for AAU all of it. He did nothing but develop bad skating habits, that took years to undo. Roller is too slow, and when he goes back to ice, his decision making was too slow. You do what you want, this is just my experience.

    Gee, I wonder who @PawlBaxter could be?

    Two username @Wampa1 and @PBsooks acting up once again insulting others time after time after time. Never did understand why he uses two different names - it took one paragraph from @PBsooks to realize both are the same person. @Paul Baxter - if you want to keep what is left of the user base here, you know what to do. Based on this and other threads, I’m clearly not the only one that feels this way.

    Additionally they probably have a team forecast to support only 'x' number of teams at each level based on their ownership of ice slots. If that reaches maximum capacity, it is better to shut registration off at that age than take all comers and have to make cuts leaving kids stranded. At least at Bantam/Midget players have JV/V to fall back on in most cases. Good on North Pittsburgh to stay within their means and do it the right way as well.

    Big changes for the cursed SCIR 07 BY team- it’s gone. Replaced by a Vengeance 07 AAA team that took the top SCIR skaters but also pulled in a number of PE kids and a coach. Efforts to put together the SCIR 07 team with the kids that didn’t make Vengeance fell apart when 10 kids declined spots. Good news for Viper Stars, Huskies, Badgers, and other programs. The SCIR PW Navy mixed year team should be strong again as well. After having two teams in PAHL Peewee AA this season (the 07s shouldn’t have been there but that’s another story), SCIR will likely have no AA PW teams in the fall.

    Lots going on this week - SCIR, Vengeance, PPE, NP particularly for 06 BY. I also heard many new faces trying out for PPE, while PPE Black players from last year trying out for Vengeance 06. Also heard 06 Icemen tryout was cancelled due to low interest level while PPE 07's had a significant amount of turn on their roster this past tryout.

    Maybe the key word would be "exclusively?" You looked up every kid's amateur team? Really? Or is it listed somewhere?

    This is true. Close to 130 kids signed up. Had heard NP was early and before RMU and Butler and therefor parents had kids try out and in event they did not make it they couls try the others. My wife heard this from another hockey mom so I am not sure if that was a reason for increase in tryout numbers. They also added a 6th travel team. hockey is thriving!

    Hearing numbers were really low last night. Time for Yuri to beg the PPE leftovers, or import a few Russians.

    Go to the pool. Play some kick ball. Eat some ice cream. Ball hockey in the driveway with buds. My boys play high level hockey in PAHL. You don't have to touch the ice at all over the summer at that age and he will still develop. I have one that does just that. The other has a weekly private and may or may not play in a three on three league. They both play lacrosse. Don't burn him out or injure him from overuse.

    Merely my voice and my opinion but..... It is a slippery slope when a public forum starts blocking an IP address of a user. I have been publicly flamed by Wampa before and I learned from it. Say my piece, defend with data, ignore him otherwise. If you take the time and read his posts ( from all of his identities) you will see that he goes from 0 to 100 with no room or time between. But if you also read his posts, there is valid information buried in with the responses.

    What sissies you people are. Let me ask you something, what do you provide the local hockey community? At least I’m discrediting phonies in the area. And the mods are too busy monitoring and posting PM’s. Wonder how that will work out for big brother if someone with time and money gets angry about it?

    My son and I had 2 separate discussions with the coach of the Black team last year after the offer was made, prior to my son making his decision. My son specifically asked the coach what he saw in him at tryouts, what he liked in his game, what he thought kept the offer from being Gold, and how the coach would work with him on his game. I thought the commentary would be cursory, generalized, and bland. I was wrong. The coach had very specific feedback on all those areas. It was a pointed, accurate, and fair assessment of what my son does well and does not. I left the conversation impressed with his honesty and acumen. I read all the time on this board about kids not making Gold due to politics or other non hockey factors. Maybe that’s true, maybe it’s not. All I know is that our experience was fair, balanced, and direct. We appreciated it.

    The usual, can't beleive they took this kid. Coaches picking the team before tryouts. No one wants to play for a dad coach. Money grab. Polical decisions. Same story different year.

    The inaccuracies in your rambling post are laughable.
