  1. i completely agree with you, i guess i miss understood your first comment, i was thinking that "little johnny" gets cut cause he missed out on hitting for a couple years, cause they removed it from lower levels and now he cant make a higher cause he isn't ready to hit.
  2. either do a way with it or leave it alone.. cant take it away for some and not all.. that's just stupid.
  3. parents may ruin a lot, but that's a valid argument..
  4. so then what about that kid that is a bubble player, he plays at a lower level for 2 years, the first 2 years checking is allowed.. He missed out on learning and playing a hitting game for 2 years. Then he improves and is now at a level that allows checking, being 2 years behind kids that have been checking for 2 years, that kid is now doomed, he will get his head knocked off.. if you don't want hit or you don't want your kids hit, don't play.. we all are well aware of the risks, hopefully we as adults/parents convey those risks to our kids, as well as the coaches to the kids... no one is forcing anyone at any level to play any sport.. i just don't get it..

  6. games being reported accurately is the biggest issue. i know for sure some teams won't post some games, especially ones they have lost.. overall i think the site is a great benchmark, and lets face it nothing is going to be 100% accurate...
  7. what is the end result of these? They are just camps and exposer correct? this is not for fielding a team, just to be accepted in the "camp" correct? still a good experience in my opinion if good enough to make it or make it as far as the child can. Why is everything is a money grab? Everything cant be free either.. no one is forcing this on anyone so if your willing to pay good for you if not your decision, not sure why everyone needs to be so negative all the time about everything.. its funny to me the amount of negativity around youth sports.. i just don't understand it.. if you don't like it don't participate.. pretty simple in my opinion.. but whatever.. you pay for what you think is worth while. camps cost money, if you wanna argue its not worth the money fine, maybe it is or it isn't, but until you do it you don't know.
  8. I couldn't agree more. we wanted to but just couldn't this year, just for the experience.
  9. This is correct. The head coach for my son's 05 team also sent invites for all the players on the team. anyone can sign up, but they only take a limited number of players, so it can fill up.
  10. where is the list? is it posted somewhere?
  11. i feel the older they get without being taught correctly the more reckless they are. more testosterone, more power, more intent. if they learn at a young age it becomes part of the game, not try to kill.. just seems thy have it wrong in my opinion, but what do i know, I'm just a parent. i agree that the dirty hits are the problem obviously, but that's neve going to stop, some kids are just undisciplined in that aspect.
  12. just to spark some conversation about your video, Im interested in the opinions on this non checking for A level games or just in general. I have feelings on both sides, one of my concerns for this A level checking ban is what if a Kid is A level 1st year, plays lights out in this non checking league, then makes AA the next year, now he is playing with AA kids in their second year of checking, to me that's the same or higher risk than him just being aloud to check in his A league.. IDK.. its a contact sport, we sign up for it, we know this risk, hopefully we as adults communicate those risks to our kids in a way they can understand as well and make decisions together based on that.
