Beer League Rookie (9/11)



  1. It really depends on coaching and who is on the team. At 16u they are supposed to be learning all these things. 14u as well. However, they also play on teams where there are kids who don't have the individual skills to do these things, let alone hockey IQ. The independent teams have really decimated the level of play in AA. You've got only a few teams in each age group with what I would say are filled with complete AA players. Everyone else only has a couple or none. If you can't pick up a pass while moving, you can have the best breakout ever and go no where. If kids don't have the individual skills, guess what you do in practice.
  2. PIHL updated the website to indicate info on girls for spring 2022 is coming soon!
  3. Here I was thinking this board was pleasantly pleasant lately. I am ok with being wrong about something and happy that my opinion was not informed in this instance. However, I am incredibly tired of the manner in which people choose to state their opinion and 'correct' others. Thanks for the somewhat backwards apology.
  4. Nice. You could have made your point without the dig. But what would this board be with out someone being a jagoff?
  5. This is the kind of thing victims have complained about for a long time. Disbelief. Slaps on wrist. It's not just the Catholic Church or USA hockey. It's pervasive throughout our society. Blackmailing a child for sex, even if the perpetrator was a minor at the time, is incredibly repulsive, aberrant behavior that is not going to be a one off. How many others were hurt by this silence? I hope our culture is changing to protect sexual assault victims.
  6. PIHL did address this ages ago and crowd control was not put on the refs, but on the schools. Everyone who has kids who play PIHL hockey received messaging from their home organization on how school crowds would be handled. I haven't heard of any further issues. Schools are hyperaware right now. I think this thread has outlived its usefulness and should be closed. If you want to continue discussing reffing, maybe make another thread.
  7. Looking at the schedule, NA plays a lot of those teams heading into playoffs.
  8. Franklin Regional is number one in penalty minutes, anyway. There is talent there, but it spends a lot of time in the box
  9. Yeah, or in the summer. Just go to a court with friends.
  10. I theorize that it is because our kids have less time to play on their own around here, with less access to ice to allow for the game to teach them. No outdoor rinks, etc. Small area games would be USA hockey's answer.With passing....gotta make em do it I guess. But I don't really know what is different in training. I just know that seems to be the glaring difference between our teams and those from the big markets.
