Take a look Big Poopy. Bantam Major is great congratulations. This team is made up of kids who have played for the blues in the old system where they got the 3-4 practices per week that travel hockey is sopposed to be about.
Same for Pee Wee Major.....Great Job Coach Maeder!
Blues Pee Wee Minor is made of 8 imports from other rinks. Started off season winning constantly. Finished Season with a record below 500 in CSDHL. This team is sopposedely made up of Elite players and since they did not finish well in CSDHL they were put in to play Bronze and Silver teams from Nihl. Is that an accomplishment or a surprise that they won. They got worse as the season went on cause they only had two practices per week. They lost most of there games in the third period because they were under conditioned and developed.
Bantam Minor. virtually the same story as pee wee minor. CSDHL team that is sopposed to be made up of star players and they compete in NIHL for BHC against bronze and silver teams. Outcome is expected as it is almost like cheating!
Squirt NIHL Gold #1 very young team that finished about 500 in Nihl Gold that played silver and bronze teams to win their state Title. Kids worked their butts off and were coached by Kapsalis. This team has potentioal if they go play elsewhere. Another year of no ice will ruin them just like the rest of the blues orginizaion.
I am going to copy and paste the original purpoose of this thread here because people seem to have lost sight as to what it is about.
"Is anyone amazed that the Blues seem to be turning out a lot of teams that are at best mediocre?
As interesting, the blues share their rink with USA Hockey. USA Hockey has spent millions educating HDs and clubs about the proper number of practices per week for travel teams. Around ( depending on age) 75-100 practices are mandated as the proper number of practices per season. This means that clubs need to have a minimum of three practices per week to come in at the lowest recommendation and 4 practices would be actually preferred. How is it that the blues organization proudly states it's allegiance and involvement in USA Hockey and it's developmental model and only offers two practice per week. Let's be fair, once or twice a month they also have a skills session. When are people going to wake up and realize they are being cheated. When are the powers of USA Hockey, Nihll, and csdhl going to punish clubs like this that blatantly under-develop youth hockey players and on top of everything also take there choices.
Do you really believe that less is adequate? When you go to buy a car are you willing to pay the price of a Mercedes for a yugo? Of course your not that dumb! Let them know you know! Challenge them and if you have the money, hire attorneys to get your money back.
They are stealing your money and your child's development."
It is mediocre to play below your teams level to win a title. Very cheap! Very unfair to the rest of the teams! This club is run by truly low class people and anyone who does not see it this way needs to open their eyes.
