Skill level in divisions

Hey I play in a rookie league only atm I am 25 years old and haven't played since I was about 11 yeas old.. The rookie league I play in is way too easy... I am easily the best player and I get pissed off playing with teammates that aren't very skilled I was just wondering how the skill level is in copper bronze silver and gold?

Where I am, there is D, C, B and A. D being the least skilled and A being the most skilled.

I'd assume that you are playing to what is the equivalent of the D league. Probably lots of first timers and older folks who picked up the game late.

Don't get frustrated, help those who need help to become better at their game this season. Next season move a level up. You'll probably find that it is more organized, people move faster and players are where they are supposed to be.

You are probably able to make do with your age and fitness level right now. The difference between D and C leagues is decent.

I'd say, just play it out and move on next season.

The only way to really find out is to go and watch a game or two. Every rink is different, one rink's copper is another rink's bronze. And gold may well be all retired NHLers, but you can't be sure if you don't check it out.

if you're dominating rookie league like you say because it's too easy then bronze is perfect for you.

definitely more fast paced but not to the point where you won't be able to keep up. playing in bronze should get you better as a player and give you a challenge.
