Toronto Titans AAA Midget. I was told by the guy that he is a JR A coach with St Mikes also and he promotes all his players to the Junior Level and that's pretty impressive that this coach can bring his Junior coaching to help out at the Midget AAA level. Not sure if they will have any spots left for next year but worth a shot, pick up the phone

STAY AWAY from this team if it's the same group that ran it this year. GM and Coach are trouble.GM in it for his son and he's lousy.

The team worked hard to get into the playoffs. When the regular season ended and the team
readied for the playoffs the coach got his check and did not show up for the playoffs.
It goes to show you how committed he was...he is in it for the wrong reasons.
Promote to the next level ? LOL. Good luck with that.

He has responsibilities with his Jr A team which is in a playoff run now would it have made a difference if he were there the end result was a given. You all knew the deal before you signed there next time maybe do some homework. The guy is a Jr A coach first, if you want an advantage of playing Jr then this is the team to play for.

It is tough to get 100% commitment in Midget AAA Hockey but its not always wise to go to a top team , its best to play for a decent coach and a team where you will get some type of exposure if you are planning to move on in your hockey careers. There have been many Midget AAA kids move on to successful Jr careers and also move on to College right from Midget AAA, so I would say that if find the right mix of good coaching and a place where you will get quality ice time and practice development then thats the place for you. Most coaches today work for a paycheck so thats no excuse to blame the coach on results. Never give up and keep playing you never know when you will hit your stride to success.

Midget hockey is still good hockey and a viable option for many players who are just not ready for Jr hockey or simply just overlooked. The best Midget AAA teams are usually the teams that are usually the organizations that are not in the top 4 or 5 at Minor Midget. Example: Marlies, Rebels etc, most of these teams will have the majority of their players go to the OHL or have Jr A commitments already, therefore the lower end Minor Midget AAA teams this year will carry over to Midget AAA and have competitive teams. I recall in years back, teams like the Reps, Senators, Majors and Titans all had very competitve Midget teams because of the carry over and many had very good coaching. JMHO

Team to avoid: Kings. Head coach leaving. Ass. coach is taking over.
The guy is a knob, has no clue how to coach. 94s gone, 95s not returning. You have been informed.

Halton Hills Hurricanes! Best run AAA organization outside of the Marlies. If current coach stays on you are in for top quality instruction.

From what I saw in Midget this year, London Knights, Whitby Wildcats, Miss.Rebels & Markham Waxers were easily the creme of the crop. Haven't seen Thunder bay. Waterloo has a lot of talent, but will be out-coached by London.
Rebels over Whitby in the OHF finals.

All good kids left

11:45 is full of it , he must be the Hurricane's coaches kid, who was quadruple shifted all season. Training is some really low level stuff in the back of an old warehouse in Georgetown, they don't even watch you, just stick you on a treadmill and leave. We will never return. dad is vp of league, and was coach of minor midgets this year. We tanked in SCTA's, as usual. Every year,all the half decent kids bolt to the G.

don't be fooled! we're out, very low level coaching.

Beware of JRC.
The team was initially given to two competent coaches with tones of experience.
A third one joined as an AC. Not happy with the $$, went behind their back and convinced
the GM ($$$) and took over the team. The initial coaches are gone. It's the org loss.
The new guy is in it for the $$$ for his hockey school (Universal Hockey, google it).
He will be dragging 30 players or more over the summer, will not sign the cards until Sept,
while collecting $$$.
Buyer beware.

I believe Greenbrier academy will start in 2012-13.
Question: why would any reasonable parent jeopardize his kid education by sending him
to a school with no academic track record yet? Is hockey more important than school?
I don't think so!

Will not send my kid to PEAC or Hill even if it comes with a free ride.
You have to be an irresponsible parent to do that.
