my son plays up with the novice kids and they dont even notice.his skating is excellent though(in all aspects,not just straight ahead speed) and he is one of the bigger and stronger players in the division.without those two criteria i would have kept him with the kids his own age.one good thing is his friend base doubled because now he knows the kids his age from soccer and baseball and the older kids from hockey.imho if the kid has
the hockey canada book for his division and he's involved in the play with the older division and not a spectator,it could be considered by the movement panel of the local minor hockey executive.
i do agree with the thinking that robbing the superstars of a younger division can cause more harm then good though in some cases leaving them unbalanced with other towns and without an example for the other kids,but sometimes it allows more players to get more touches with the puck in that division also.
