2024-25 Movement
Topic: March 04, 2024, 07:03:13 PM
Rumors are flying about major movement at the PW & SQ AAA/AA level. I hear PHC, FE, LF, JRF, FY are all losing and gaining players.  Mercer and Igloo are mostly losing players. Igloo is so desperate they are having a town hall meeting to convince families to stay! Lots of movement since AA & AAA are basically same price and same travel. This will be the craziest tryout season since 2021 when PHC/Hollydell decimated FE and had families scrambling for a new rink. One thing I know for sure, rinks will be making bank from tryouts!

Hearing 2010 JRF losing some key players.  Should be a fun March/April!

Also hearing there will be quite a lot of movement at the 2011 birth year (1st year Bantam) around Mercer/Little Flyers/Minutemen/PHC/JRF all these teams are dismantling.

Really good talent is spread among those rinks. Too bad the best talent doesnt gather at 1-2 rinks and have teams that are competitive outside of this area

All that time and money to be a mid 40's ranked team that gets beat bad once you leave NJ/PA. Too many letter chasing parents

Good thought, but the District makes that near impossible with the only two player movement per season clause from one team to the next.  From what I’ve heard, only the Atlantic District has this clause.

Bigger issue is allowing all the T1 charters to water down the talent of AAA.  I believe AAHA is trying to address over the next few years, but that’s the only thing that’s going to fix it - although if the checkbooks continue to be open, no one is going to say no to the letter chasing

I don't think it is letter chasing. I think it is about how much ice time you get at AAA compared to AA. AAA gives you 3hrs of practice per week from Arpil-mid-June and then again from mid-August thru end of Feb. You get 1 hr skill/week, 1 hr off ice and 1 hr video. You also get a 4 day 6hr summer/training camp. That is a lot for your money. If AA would offer that I would sign my kids up, but they don't. So in order to get everything AAA offer you need to pay an additional $4-5k. Stop hating blaming letter chasers and just look at it logically from a dollars perspective.

the town hall meeting email went out to a lot of other blackbear rinks as well.

Really? I am at a BB rink and we did not get a town hall email. Rumor is Igloo losing more players this year and rink is imploding. I hear multiple 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 players leaving. Not happy with the direction of rink and disappointed their kids did not improve.

If the town hall was any indication of the character of the families leaving, good riddance.
