In terms of travel, what would be reasonable AAA options for a kid from Carlisle if there are no spots in Hamilton, because the team is full of kids who arent from Hamilton?
Some kids just want to play AAA hockey against good competition.... rather than be a bottom player on a good team..... be a middle to top player on another team and get ice time.... believe it or not some kids and parents are o.k. with there kid being on a middle to low end team.... especially at a young age as long as the quality of coaching is there.... examples of centers that are closer to Carlisle than Hamilton.... you have Halton.... Burlington..... Cambridge and maybe even Guelph.
Oh I get it...icetime over wins. Agree.

My point is, that with open borders Hamilton could stack up with top players from Halton, Burlington, Cambridge and Guelph. Then players would gravitate to whichever centre is deemed the "next best option". Complete lack of parity in that region eliminates the "mid-pack" option.

Open borders in the O would be a teribble idea.
You must be an executive from a center that has poor programming, any center that has good coaches and good programming welcomes open borders. We need to stop forcing kids where they can play. Good players get locked into centers with bad programming or poor coaches. This insanity needs to stop, give people choice, and stop the 1990s way iof thinking. We are already way over regulated. I have been around for 20 years and do feel the dam is about to burst due to over regulations.

Well what happened at the OMHA AGM meeting on the weekend... did this pass? is this trial happening? if so when?
That’s the funny part. Do you think any of these guys went to the AGM to vote? I’m guessing no because otherwise we would have heard about it
