Class A/ AA plan

Postby madseason » Thu Dec 15, 2016 9:27 pm

Class A East- Grafton, Langdon, Park River , Whapeton, Mayport, Valley City. West Fargo sheyanne 1st couple years? West- Crosby, Watford City, Hazen Beulah, Bottineau, Rugby, Richland (Sydney MT). Bismarck Legacy 1st couple years?. AA East- Central, Red River,
Davies, South, North, West Fargo, Devils Lake. West- Bismarck, Bismarck Century, Minot, Mandan, Dickinson, Williston, Jamestown. The season lasts one week longer (might help with the Engelstad problem?) State A tournament a week before the AA regionals. Winner of A gets pick at what region they will be seeded 8th in AA, runner up gets the other. I think schools like Red River, Central, Minot, Bismarck teams could also have enough players that they CUT to make a C squad to play in the A division? This would Grow Hockey in the state. IMO Minnesota does it right.

There was a co-op agreed upon between MPCG, CV, Hillsboro, and Hope-Page I believe for the 17-18 season. Will they just be in the EDC next year?

My understanding is they'll play an independent schedule.

Valley City co-ops with Jamestown. They don’t have enough players to field a team the way it is. Jamestown would be weaker yet without VC as they have only made state twice since 99’.

Jamestown can go A then! Valley city's hockey program falls apart after squirts for the same reason the park rivers program has struggled after squirts. Valley city has had some very good squirt teams over the past 5 years . They don't retain the players in the "coop". At least Jamestown tries to do it right by using a neutral name and colors in the Coop, unlike the mess they have up in Grafton and park river.

That's exactly how it looks on their schedule as well right now...lots of MN teams (their JVs?) and a few SD & ND teams (also looks to be JVs for the ND teams).

So what is the long term goal of this co-op? is it just to play an independent schedule or do they hope to some day compete in the EDC?
