I think CAHA, Overpriced Coaching, Hockey politics and Delusional parents killed the love of this sport.
The majority of people are over it. IMO

Brutal the last CAHA weekend is after a 2 week break for clubs. The leadership of CAHA and SCAHA is absolutely brutal.

Thank you sir may I have another!

Midget Hockey / Re: How come no physical required for travel hockey?
« Last post by AntonioGenao on November 17, 2022, 06:53:45 AM »
Does anyone know if there are any legal steroids available on the market and why a physical is required for high school athletics but not travel hockey?  Perhaps it is just big government putting their fingers in school athletics.  Do private schools also require a physical? Just curious.

Just a guess, but probably because high school hockey is not an official high school sport. It does not have CIF designation, which probably requires the physical.

Hockey has a very tenuous relationship with the public high schools. In some cases around us team have had to sort of 'go underground' because the teams have essentially been given 'cease and desist' messages from the school to stop using school names, etc. As far as I can tell, most public high school teams, if they are associated with a school, are associated as a 'club'. My son's team is such, and was listed next to the chess club, the astronomy club, etc. Unfortunately, the school then decided that sports clubs actually went against the rules as well, so they eliminated them all.

This is at least partially because of legal reasons. High school sports have to guarantee staff presence, must provide transportation, must practice on campus, etc. None of this is possible for hockey here.

So the question is probably not 'why aren't physicals required', because the requirement is likely part of CIF, and it isn't a CIF sport.

Players were required to arrive at the rink in full gear; locker rooms were closed, building entry was limited to one parent per player

Same stuff here, Hockey Guy.  The option always exists to relocate and find the right balance of development, competition, costs, and travel elsewhere out of State, right?  The secret cabal and mindset within SCAHA and CAHA has been in place for a very long time.  CA club hockey is a big business, that ain't changing any time soon.  Community based non-profit Association hockey in the Winter is out there....  Otherwise, try to hop on the SCAHA or CAHA Board and try to make the change you seek.... David v Goliath ain't happening either since parents would rather just cut the check or give up their bank account deets for auto-debits vs fight the real fight, IMO. Good night, good luck and good hockey.
