I need to pick your brains again My coaching partner and I are considering putting together a Mite(8U) select/tournament inline team comprised of kids in our rec league. We are currently polling other leagues in our area, but I thought this would also be a valuable place to ask as well. So if any of you with applicable experience would be kind enough to respond to the following questions it would be greatly appreciated. 1. Does your league/assn have an 8U select/tournament team? 2. Do the select players play rec as well? 3. How many players to your select team carry? 4. How often do you practice. 5. How many tournaments do you play a year? 6. What is the furthest distance you travel to play? 7. Do you lose players to "burnout"? If yes, how many? For the coaches of 12U, 14U and up, the above questions as well as: 1. How many of your players have come up through the 8U and 10U select programs? 2. Do your players play Middle School/High School as well, or are the school programs and select programs associated? 3. How many players that have come up through the 8U, 10U select programs decide not to continue? What do you attribute this to? Thanks in advance to any and all who respond.
