How are tryouts?
Topic: April 12, 2023, 11:03:03 AM
How are tryouts where you are at?  A few orgs haven’t had their first yet, but many have. Is your kid’s team still looking for players?  Is it well run and kids getting placed appropriately?  Are the perennial free agents jumping ship?  Is it a complete shitshow?

My kid’s kid's tryout went about as expected.  A few second years on the team, but mostly first years.  A few new kids, one perennial free agent.

Learned just how worthless tryouts are at the club we left. I looked at the registrations and picked the teams based on the teams barely changing in 5 years. Players making the team because the parents are all drinking buddies. Meanwhile, my kids got legitimate looks at their new clubs and are thrilled to compete next season.

Heard Igloo Jags 12U, 14U & 18U a mess. Not enough talent for AA as too much talent moved on to Hollydell, Mercer, NE Skate Zone, Pennsauken and 18U talent graduated. Kids that left for other rinks moved for better coaching. Igloo trying with VW, but too little too late.

Don't forget PHC 12's to lost a ton, so 09,10,11,12's at PHC dismantled. Something isn't right.

Beach deserves what he gets losing, 8 very talented players leave all because of the coach. He should have been let go.

My son is going into his 8th yr and I can't remember seeing this many people posting on different boards about looking for a place for their kid or clubs posting the need for more players. This yr seems a bit crazy.

Where did the 8 2011 PHC players go? What kids left the 2012 team? Every year there are rumors on this board about PHC imploding and it never pans out. Let's have some proof!

I think a lot of player movement happened as kids get older, driving 1-2 hours to an from practice 3 days a week gets old. Look at PHC rosters. 60% of players live an hour or more from Hollydell. Plus once players realize PHC is no different than other Tier 1 programs, they leave. PHC is not this mythic program no matter what the sheep at Hollydell think!
