When you are on the edge of something great, it often feels like you could not be more far away. This mantra will be a familiar mantra throughout your life, and for those who are on the cusp of the next level, it is a painfully accurate reality. This could not be truer when it comes to midget hockey players. In this article, we are going to touch on what you will go through, and where you can turn when you are about to give up on playing the puck at the next level.
The Road to Junior Hockey
As you may well know, the road to junior is not always straight, and for many, it is a windy trail of doubt and broken hearts that eventually lead to the end goal, junior hockey. For many top prospects, the path to junior is clear, they are picked up in the Bantam draft, and head off as a 16-year-old to their respective teams. However, for those who take a little longer to mature their game, the possibilities do not end at the bantam draft. For midget aged kids, there is the midget draft, where guys who fell through the cracks will generally get picked up, especially if they hit a growth spurt. However, if you are missed there, many believe that your career is finished, and you only have a future full of intramural hockey and some Sunday night beer league to look forward to. You could not be more wrong! So, what do you do if you are nearing the end of your midget career and still want to try and get to junior? It’s simple, sign up for Roster Point.
