You all only WISHED your grinder kid would make Mission 97 team.(The most scouted team in country similar to Mission 96 ).
Not advancing to Nationals means nothing in long term.Kids on this team will receive D1 offers regardless,will be invited to Team USA u17 camp next year .. and will play USHL.(This is what matters-teams do not move on,individuals do!).Can you say that about your team?.
Parents and kids on this team are still winners!
