Reach out to 91 or to the coaches. From what I've hear they took 4 or 5 new kids.

Don’t waste your time with 2nd team of big clubs.

They don’t care about the B team. They will be put in garbage tournaments run by 91

These teams have huge turnover every year. Numbers will always be a problems with these teams. 26 B team barely had enough. 28 b team, kids played in 2 tourneys and had no kids. 28 A team played in 5. 27 b team 7-8 kids just left. You get the point

Stay far away from 91 B teams.

So it’s easy to say big clubs don’t care about B teams. And some do and some don’t. But the it’s also parents that sign their kid up club and they play other travel sports and treat it like rec. I am not saying don’t play more sports, I am saying don’t play multiple travel teams. It happens on these teams and practice suffers and then the part time kids show up game day. On A teams this is the primary sport, on B teams it’s 50/50 sometimes.

Another ridiculous statement from a Botc troll. I’m familiar with four 91 B teams. They are all very serious about their team and considered good to very good. The fact is, most players will never play on an A team, and 91 B teams are a very good option for them. Beware of trolls that claim to be experts on everything. A sure fire tell tale of a clueless troll.

Fair point. But I could easily counter that the clubs put no effort into these teams. You will see the A team with 6 coaches and the B team with 1-2. The B team coach will cancel practice all the time. The A team coach will have it 2x a week. As a result the better players on these B teams will often leave and go elsewhere. This results in a roster that changes a lot every year. As a result you have low numbers. They then take players from the A team and ask them to play and help out. Only problem with this is when the A team has another tournament your pretty much screwed. You then wind up playing with 14 kids at a tournament and get crushed

So I can tell you as a parent, that the Hornets have a full roster, have 4 experienced coaches and played in 5 events over the summer and 2 or 3 in the fall. They added 5 strong players from tryouts and we will be a solid team. They practice all fall, train throughout the winter and practiced weekly over the summer. I’m not saying we are the best but we are competitive and the team gets a lot of practice and training.

Everything I said was true. What 4 91 B teams are you familiar with? Please enlighten me on the ones that take it serious.

I know several strong players that went to them. They should be competitive in B brackets.

They all are if your kid could really play. If he's average then may be tough this year.

Every team looking to add 5-6 players to make up for their $$ losses last season. Oh wait, they didn't lose a dime but still padded the rosters to line their pockets. NOT one club is concerned about development. The minute you slip they'll replace you or hold your spot and add 3 more kids. They're all just in it for the money.
