Re: High School Inline Hockey
While Mr. Delgado says be careful what you wish for, I say be careful who you believe. Ed is a great guy and runs a decent facility but he has a personal stake in the league staying private. There is a lot of money out there to be had and he wants his piece. I don't blame him. However, if the sport does not become a sanctioned sport, it will never be accepted as a viable alternative to football and baseball. Sanctioning brings credibility. There are hundreds of boys and girls out there who deserve recognition for their achievements. When you have volunteer coaches, you take what you can get. Quality suffers for want of a good coach. The sport should be sanctioned and the coaches paid. Referees are paid yet you never know what to expect, oversight is sorely lacking. Overall we have a fantastic league in Colorado but to take it to the next level, it needs to become a sanctioned sport.
