Does anyone find it odd that they chose teams in just 60 minutes of tryouts?
I have never seen tryouts less than 3 hours multiple days. Yet they charge $50 a child, totally over $5,000 for just 7 hours of ice time.
What did they do with the remaining $4,700?
My sons mvyha tryouts were held on 2 days.

Many other clinics and camps out there. Just sayin kids within had an advantage Not really an open tryout then. 50 bucks way too much. Feel bad for the suckers that shelled out cash thinking their kid had a shot.
I watched every minute of tryouts, and I picked the same team with one exception, and it was the last spot. this was the first time in 8 years of local hockey where they actually put the best players on the Travel Team. So if you think the insiders got a head up then I would say it is because they didn't put up at the tryout.

Listen get your head our of your ass and realize it is political like most. Now that some Whitestown parents are moving over it will get worse. Trust me. Your last name and daddy's wallet will get you by. Trust me when I tell you. Once parents stop following around head coaches thinking its the best move for kids hockey career. Your kids stink try bowling. I may be an outsider. But one thing I know is a lot of these parents are blowers.
This was the least political tryout I have ever seen here.

Why are so many kid not going to Kr Comets still on the web site. Know for a fact some have sent emails saying they were not interested. And a coach is on the web sit that is also listed on another associations web site. What is that all about?

Was another try-out held? New names continue to pop up on all rosters travel and independent too as well as snowbelt. Wonder how that happened - certainly no politics involved.

Scary what people do to their kids instead of marketable skills and an education in real world matters. This says a lot about why cny is such a poultry farm full of losers and impoverished drug addicts and wannabe cops.

Some kids are just not at the Comet Level yet. If you want your kids to excel if they have some natural talent join The Bulldogs. It did wonders for my son. Best hockey investment for my son I have ever made.

Did all of their players come from other local programs? If so why did they leave local programs. Won't this hurt local programs? Can't local associations work together?

A lot of players were already with The Coyotes and Mohawk Valley. Other left because of issues. Bottom line is the try-outs from what I saw were pretty legit. A few good squirts and Bantams and Pewees were left behind because of 1 reason or another. Some will stay like us some will return back to there're org. Either way its about the kids. Not the parents. All I know there're are a few kids that did not make certain teams that basically destroy kids that did make it in real game situations. And they also showed up at The Try-Outs. Several names on the Comets roster are not even going to play for the comets. That is a fact.

Why would those few kids not have made it on the travel or independent teams? It is a disservice to that player to place them at the wrong level. They should leave if they truly are a travel player and were placed on a house team. What feedback were those kids given that were not placed on the travel teams? When a kid had legitimately played at a competitive level for several years then comes to a try out to get to play at a higher caliber level and doesn't make it - can certainly be a blow to their confidence. It's all about the kids not the parents.

I've heard that a few kids have been added to squirt A team without try out. And only have three kids signed up for squirt B team. Names are not currently on roster on web site..
