Game 3

    Game 3 of the tournament was more of the same for the Lapeer Storm team. Meaning to say that it was another drubbing. How's that old saying go... "If you don't have anything nice to say..." Well, that about sums up this game and this tournament. For the most part the opposing coaches did their best to back off their kids once the score got out of hand (typically in the second and third periods), but that was quite demoralizing to our kids. What I later found out is that there is two different levels of Squirt hockey - A and B. We are a Squirt A team, which means that our kids are born in 2004 and 2005. Typically that would mean that the 2004 players are kids who didn't want to play on an '03 team or weren't good enough, and the 2005 players were good enough to play on an '04 team or didn't want to wait for an '05 team. The Squirt B teams have kids from 2003 and 2004 on their teams, and each of the teams we played this weekend fell into that category. Our coach didn't realize this before the tournament, but he acknowledged that had he known he wouldn't have brought the kids this weekend. At this point I look at it as an experience for the kids - now they know what they have to work on and what areas they are good at. Right now there is more to work on that what they are good at, but in 6 months maybe that won't be the case...
