Simple way to cut costs and restore U14 at the same time is to drop JV.

It always amazes me that people can figure out how to find this site and make posts but can't go to Google and search on mshsl and get the info.

Andrea Jacka of Jefferson against I think Edina in the Sections a few years ago. She got the puck on the opening face-off and scored about as fast as humanly possible.

There is no "right" answer and whatever the coach does will be second guessed if the team loses. My observation is that if all things are roughly equal, go with the senior as the younger goalie will have their chance. Parents discussing this type of thing in a public forum or really even at the rink...

The last thing to do is bring your argument to this forum. Have your daughter talk to her coach, it's between her and the coach.

Looks like they will only get suspensions and detention, no beatings or prison terms as some were hoping for. Not like the good old days, I remember getting kicked out for having hair too long, now I just wish I had hair, those were the days.

The best way to stay out of trouble is to avoid it. If you publish a picture of yourself you deserve it, but in my example, someone else does it without your knowledge or approval. Edit- I should add that I am going to assume the student(s) in question got a fair chance to explain the photos to the ...

So let's say your daughter visits a college to see if she wants to go there. While there, she is taken to a team party. At that party there is a lot of drinking going on, some underage, some not, it's college. A picture is taken of her with a red cup in her hand. The cup contains 7-UP. Someone takes...

Does MN Hockey have a presence at Wild games? By that I mean a booth or something fun to attract kids so they can be directed to their association. Are you at the State Fair? Am I correct in saying recruitment needs to be in the age 6-8 range? Do you see the target audience to market to as the kids ...

It's only one year but it the decline in numbers from u12 to u10 to u8 should be a concern. Your experience may be different but mine was we lost girls as they got older. Comparing the U8 to U12 numbers looks like a loss of at least 10 teams worth of girls more if kids drop out. This is what this th...

I looked in the summer minutes and saw nothing, perhaps they were handed out to participants.

Do you really think every member should be emailing MN hockey asking for simple participation numbers or perhaps is that why we have websites?

Well, they kind of get it, it's a year old but whatever. Still, unless I missed it and I may have, the only have all data for 2002 thru 2006 and it is separated by year so you need to open 4 documents to pull out data. They also have 1990 thru 2005 but only totals. All I wanted to see is a simple da...

I'm actually really not all that interested in these numbers. I asked the question because people often talk about the growth or lack thereof, of girls hockey. So what I expected is someone with knowledge to come back with figures so whatever claim was being made (I forget now) could be backed with ...

I think these numbers should be on the MN Hockey website so anyone can see them without having to email someone. In effect, these numbers are the stock ticker on how the organization is doing.

Hux, I asked because the club team issue doesn't exist (to my knowledge) in MN as we have forced community based hockey. I would recommend girls play boys hockey as long as they can because the pace and intensity of the game is something that girls hockey can never match. Most of the better players ...

If they are a National level player they get invited to the U22 camp. For most it's time to move on, go to college and hopefully play hockey. But at some point they need to get a life.
