No need to drive all the way up to JJ anymore. Great coaching at Preds and now 2 way out of Brunswick with top notchi coaching. PT and EXPN will take a big hit
From what I have heard the biggest issue with Express North is some questionable coaching. The coaches apparently are all over the map to a much greater degree than some other programs. Some of the better programs seek to mentor and guide younger coaches and try (I said try) to impose some sort of consistent curriculum. LIE North looks to struggle with this if what I am told is accurate.
Our experience has been the complete opposite. . . . I think (like everything else) coaching can vary dramatically from team to team, so it is possible that what you have heard is true for some of the teams. That said, this is our first year with Express North, and the coaching is superior to that which my son received at his prior club by far.
