This is our second year in travel hockey, so this might be a dumb question. I have a 2nd year PeeWee who made the A-team, but they appear to be short a lot of players in order to complete the team.
They ran a supplemental tryout on Thursday and are running another supplemental tryout on Saturday, but I'm getting concerned that they might not have enough kids to fill up a team.
Last year, they had 4 PeeWee teams and this year they are struggling to put together 2 teams (AA & A). There AA team is short kids as well.
The club lost a lot of players this year to other nearby clubs. We are worried that we made a bad decision in staying, as it now appears that they don't have enough players to fill out a team.
My question is, should we stay since we are on a team and hope they find more kids to play before the season starts? We are not worried about the team being competitive, our son is not that great and last season we were 0-20 for the season.
We live in NJ and are located within 30-minutes of a rink to our South and another rink 30-minutes to the North. There is also a rink about 30-minutes right over the bridge in PA, so moving to another rink wouldn't be much of an inconvenience drive wise.
