So my sons team had another great year.

Now my wife who sweats this stuff even more than I do called my sons coach to ask about tryouts because she is worried. Instead of the normal "we shall see" sort of response he says "If another team wants to sign him, he should do it"

So....now part of me and most of me thinks this is because last year he did not tell the 4 or 5 kids that were cut they may not make the team and heard about it from the parents and felt bad. Another part of me knows he wants some harder hitting kids on the team.

Going to another tryout tonight.

Would much rather just make the team he was on, heck he had at least 18% of their points for the season. So out of 9 offensive players he had 1/5th of the points...what I am saying is the kid can play its not like there is a lack of talent.

Anyway, guess I need to be prepared to take photos of a different colored uniform next year. Won't hold it against the coach, I think at this level the best kids should make the team....but as a parent wonder if he does not make the team if I will agree with everyone who did make it (minus of course the coaches kids, of which he is better than at least one of them)

Cory went to another organizations tryouts on Monday and was signed the first night.

His previous team was a AA this one is a AAA...it should be interesting the coaching staff is new this year for the team he joined and they look like they are in their late 20's...none of them have a kid on the team. They only signed 5 players that were with that team last season, so I hope it will be a very good year.

The old team dropped 3 other players and one other player did not go to tryouts.

Of the three players they dropped, one quit hockey all together and the other two are now scrambling to find teams to play with. Problem is all the teams have tryouts the same nights, so if you do not get selected you end up going to a team that is begging for players and therefore should not be too competative.

Time for the off season...soccer etc. and some summertime beer.

Yes, tryouts are about two weeks after the finals for the age group.

Early...now we know where we will be. I think this coach plans on having dry land training this summer (hill running)

What's the difference between AA and AAA? I'm not savvy with the designations.

AAA is a higher caliber of hockey than AA (which is higher than A).
