My son starting skating at 3 and playing @ 4. He just finished up his 1st year of playing AAA Spring/Summer league (a year up) and had a blast playing the AAA all star teams from Montreal, Quebec and Ontario (they actually beat the Ontario team !! - not bad for a "southern" team) He's a 2001, just turned 8

I would agree with OCanada....and if he loves it, let him go...but you have to watch the burnout and try doing ANYTHING else in the off season (maybe just some public skates etc)

I'd also add - head up to see the play, passing and not going coast to coast, hand speed around the net esp....and practice backwards skating and backhands.....

Seems the "elite" players can do all of that and then some...

Have fun !!
