Rochester Selects Midget Program

Rochester Selects Midget Program Set to Launch for 2019-20 Season

Beginning with the 2019-2020 travel hockey season the Rochester Selects Midget Hockey Program will be launched at the 15U and 16U Midget levels.

The 16U Rochester Selects will play under the Perinton Youth Hockey USA Hockey charter as a Tier I state and national-bound tournament team.  During the fall portion of the season the Selects will play in the highly competitive BEAST league’s top division to offer the players a highly competitive schedule and maximum exposure to prep schools, junior programs and NCAA colleges.  Following the fall season the schedule will include one away weekend and one home weekend a month throughout the high school season against national competition. This schedule will allow players the option to compete with their local high school program or, if they choose, additional training on, and off, the ice with the Rochester Selects staff.  

The 15U Rochester Selects will play under the Rochester Youth Hockey USA charter as a Tier I state and national-bound team.  Like the 16U Selects, this 15U team will participate in the BEAST league’s top division during the fall portion of the season and follow with the ‘soft-split’ season model.  The schedule would look to add one home weekend and one away weekend against national competition following the BEAST league season and Western New York playdowns. The schedule model will also allow players the option to play for their local high school programs during the high school hockey season.

Additional program content and details will be announced in the coming weeks as well as tryout information.  The head coaches for the teams are as follows:

16U Rochester Selects:  Francois Methot

15U Rochester Selects:  Chris Collins

For questions regarding this program, please contact Francois Methot,

A must read for all hockey parents

Former NHL star Ray Ferraro was asked to talk to parents of a  club that was going through a tough time, with parent expectations at an all-time high.

This is what Ferraro told the parents.

– Minor hockey is out of control in terms of Parents chasing the dream for their kids instead of kids deciding on their own how passionate they are for it and how bad they want it.

– In the last 10 years only 21 kids who either played at NSWC or BWC have appeared in at least ONE NHL regular season game. Point is if your banking on your son collecting an NHL pay cheque to solidify his and yours financial future you seriously need to stop and come up with a new plan and now.

– The odds of going pro are extremely low but the odds of having to find a career and a job to pay bills and be a husband and father are extremely high and it’s not dictated by if you played AAA hockey

– Parents need to enjoy the ride while you have it … your son’s minor hockey days end too quickly and often times people end up regretting what they did not know then and what they ending up missing because they were focused on everything but their kid having fun

– As a parent who devotes time and money to your son, the only right you have to ask is they give it their best … not how much ice time they get, if they play on the PP, who is their winger or D partner

– Don’t pay for power skating, dryland training, skill development and expect your son to score 50 goals, if you decide to invest in extras do it because your son asked for it and wants to improve and has a smile on his face each and every time … too many parents decide what they want their kids to do instead of their kids asking to do it.

– 12 month hockey is wrong … organized skills sessions, tryouts, spring hockey is too much and too taxing … kids can shoot pucks, stick handle, play street hockey but they need out of the mental insanity of a hockey rink and need to be engaged in something other than hockey … the time away reinforces the passion to want it

– Coaches are coaches we all know the game and think this should be done a certain way … how come we never tell our kids math teacher how to teach calculus but we think as parents we have the right to tell a hockey coach how much ice time and with whom and when our kids should play.

– When you evaluate your kids season, never base it on how many banners they won, what provincial they won, what tourneys they went to and won … ask yourself what improved from September to April, what did he learn or improve upon including non-hockey stuff … evaluate the season besides wins and losses but gains and improvements.

– I have a son who is going through the rigors of pro hockey in the AHL. Hockey is a tough racket. Growing up, my dad never talked to me after a game or practice, I did that with my kids. Just let them play, learn and develop. Pressure is high enough, no need to make it worse.
