The team we took to Beijing, included kids who were 5,6,7,8 years old. We took anyone who wanted to come. During the tournament the boys took it on the chin, losing all five games by a total combined score of 1 -60. We played teams who consisted of ONLY 8 and 9 year olds, who were hand picked from a much bigger pool of players.
Last Sunday, the U8 Team returned from Hong Kong. This is the biggest tournament in Asia, with 53 teams and 13 teams in our U8 age group. The boys played five games, as they played the year before, but the result was much different both on and off the ice.
