do kids actually try out for these teams for a summer tournament?  I've never seen this before?

Yes, the Keystone games go on every year.  They are cover all age groups and sports, even senior citizens.

There are tryouts and some regions get more kids to show up than others.  

The hockey part of this is bigger in the East so their teams are always strong.

Basically in WPA, hardly no AAA (or many AA) kids try out, and usually out east half the team are Philly Jr. flyers and other AAA teams.  In fact I can't remember on PPE kid ever playing on any of the 5 or so Keystone teams our son played on.

The East doesn't always win but due to the fact the games are usually always player in the east, more kids tryout and play there.

for kids in this area, it's not as fun to travel and pay for a weekend hotel and play in the eastern PA

The Tryouts are listed on the KSG website and these teams are usually AA Caliber Players and some AAA (a handful of PPE kids played last years for Central)

We are looking for the top players in the region to round out the rosters at 12 U 14 U 16 U and 18 U .............could be a good year for Central 🙂

Why in the world would you want 20 players at the 12U and 14U ages? Or any age group for that matter? These teams play 3 games total........ 1 each day. Fatigue can't be a factor.

Wait....... I know, the more players we can roster........ the more fees we can collect and since our costs are fixed we'll pocket more geld

I looked at the 16U roster.  Yikes, the poster above was right….hardly any AAA or legit AA kids tryout…where are the legit AA and higher skaters from Vengeance and Esmark.  Understood this is beneath PPE.  But, looking at that roster, it looks more like some A Major kids who are friends of the coach.

Who actually evaluates and picks the team?

folks are starting to realize the bill of goods promised is a bunch of bs. Having to go all over the country to play 20-80 ranked teams, and playing in a sub par naphl just isnt worth the time anymore. look at iceman they didn't last in the aa league very long.

There are mostly AA Amateur Players and AAA Vengeance and Icemen as well on the 16 U Team for Central `+ players who just play school hockey. You assumptions are bad and info was emailed only to participants.. 

Do me a favor and quit lying and casting a cloud over Keystone Games and sign up and play. Just amazing how people make shit up ?

It is just as amazing that people believe stuff that is made up. And also ignore stuff that is fact.

The problem that has existed with this for years is that the East puts really good AAA talent on their teams and has quite a few practices before the event. The other two teams have to travel to ty he east and don't attract the same level of talent. 16u AAA Vengeance and Icemen are not AAA. Some I would bet are A Major knowing who those programs took.

Not fun when the odds are stacked before you get out of the gate.
