Yeah not really a surprise with that team.  They played up to major in their minor year and won the regular season.

For those in the know, What s the cost of playing JRS on a typical WHL  team ?


WHL is a tier 1 Canadian major junior league where you are paid to play. Hence you loae your eligibility. Gettng drafted only means the team has your rights for next season should you decide to play WHL. You lose NCAA college scholarship eligibility. All others USHL, BCHL, NAHL are ok for the eligibility. Hope this helps

junior A tier one is all inclusive. Tier 2 like NAHL is free for hockey, but you have to pay for your living expenses.

Also WHL pays for a year of any North America college for each year you play in the WHL:

Just to clarify. In WHL, players are provided all their equipment, room and board at billet family and schooling at no charge to player. They are provided a small stipend, maybe $350 per month, for incidentals. They are provided a one year college scholarship, in their home state, for each year they play in WHL. If they sign Pro contract, scholarship is forfeited. They have a limited amount of time after leaving WHL to start using their scholarship. They can also attend college courses while playing for WHL which does not impact their scholarship money.

Are the WHL scholarships enough to pay for more than book money?

Yes. Scholarship pays full tuition, student fees and required textbooks. Doesn’t cover room or board. Kids can attend any school anywhere in US or Canada, but upper limit of tuition reimbursement is limited to published amount of public school tuition in home state. So, for example, California kid who attends private university back East only gets scholarship money equal to annual in-state tuition at a UC school. Still a nice deal for those kids who choose to go to college after WHL years.

Just noticed Oakland Bears have 14AA listed on their tryouts page.  Might they be picking up some Stockton talent?  Anyone with some info on whether they would have the numbers for a AA team?  Don't see enough talent around Norcal for more than 2 GSE teams and a Jr Sharks team.  Yet Oakland and Santa Clara have AA tryouts listed.


Gonna be an interesting weekend coming up...

From the SC Blackhawks Website:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Based on pre-registration numbers, we will not be fielding a Bantam AA team in the 2018-2019 season.

Dear CAHA Boardmember,


Please have some consideration and respect for the hockey families in California.  Let us know of any new rules or dramatic changes regarding tier, jamborees, flighting, CAHA weekends and other important details prior to all of us signing on the dotted line. 


Sincerely,
an often misinformed hockey parent

That is too bad they could not get enough players to attend. This is not AAA hockey, its AA. I would have hoped with all the Barracudas and Heat AHL teams  and the San Jose Community has done with the Sharks that it would have spread out more. 


This is not good for  Northern California Minor hockey, U14 and U16 is where grow and start to get noticed for NCAA Schools among other programs. Thats just sad that they could not get enough players.  So with that where will they go play ?  They also what to be competitive as well. No one wants to lose 8-0 or win 8-0 either.

didn't they used to be one of the better Clubs in NorCal?  wonder what has happened in the last few years?  I know they had a championship team at 16 the season before last, but seems like that was more of an exception...

My kids are a bit older, but I am noticing that at 16U and especially 18U, it is getting tougher to field teams. The kids with any kind of talent/desire and/or means head to prep schools at that age. As for the rest? It seems as though they settle for high school leagues. Not bad talent-wise if you are part of the Ducks HS League, but pretty dismal if you are in the Kings league IMO. Pretty sad that clubs' offerings seem to peak at the PW level and then drop off from there.

Not fully sighted as to the entire SC club--just know quite a few families that are late PW/early Bantam families. It is a numbers thing and it is cyclical, and tends to follow a good coach, who knows, they could have a boom year in a year or more. GSE has taken a lot of the higher quality players in Norcal for its AA programs, and its success speaks for itself. The other AA teams up north seemed to have to "grow their own" talent in house with kids who were following a good coach or were sticking with the club regardless. Same pattern with the Jr Sharks and Stockton....

GSE 14u tryouts last year were packed with 60 or so kids trying out for the two teams...could hardly fit all the kids on the benches on day one...from what I hear this year will be no different.
