Jr. Preds may be dissolved

Seems the Nashville Junior Preds have closed business

Here is the original link from a former Nashville Jr Pred, which has been retweeted by Dirk Hoag, Robby Stanley, etc

Anyone have any insight on this?
If true this could be awful for the kids in the area.

I would tend to think that once the new ice is done, it will be revived. Somebody (and I don't remember where I read it this morning) said the preds did not agree with some decisions that A-Game made and the preds pulled out. I don't know what it was, but I wouldn't be so hasty to drag the preds thru the mud if it was a moral decision.

Since we are awaiting further confirmation as well as more background, I'll label this as a rumor. I will change as necessary.

Would want to know more about what's going on, but yeah, that doesn't look good at all.

I don't think the Jr Predators meeting and voting to dissolve the Jr Predators leads it to be just a rumor. Doubt someone would put the facts in a documented enail if it was a lie or just a rumor.

Said it will be made public in next 24-48 hours.

Either way i was expecting to have teams at A game as well as the new ice as a sign the game is growing. I guess i was wrong.

What the people who post here already have their pitchforks out before they know what the facts are? Shocking.

Dramatic much? I haven't seen that. Actually people are just asking if anyone has more insight about what is going on.

Probably referenced that to me, which I'm fine with, less ice is a bad thing, plain and simple

I agree especially if the game grows in the area which personally i am hoping for.

I'm sure once the new rink is opened a new travel team will start up. Travel teams come and go, if this one goes away, another one will pop into it's place.

Right now, there's a huge void for ice here with Centennial Sportsplex shutting down for the summer for repairs and the new rink still not completed.

From what I can gather, and it may not all be correct, but i don't not trust this person

The pitchforks actually should be directed at the AAA Thunder out of Huntsville. They apparently have territorial rights over 5 states. Tennessee is one of them. (AAA feeds junior programs I believe, and that is where serious looks happen.) Jr. Preds applied to become a AAA club/member and Thunder said no.

There is a group at A-Game that is keeping the AA team together, just not under the Preds banner. So youth hockey isn't going away. It will just have a different name.


On another note, Jr. Preds had their challenges and this may be the best thing for them. I do think they will be back along with a slew of other programs and teams when the new ice is done.

relax...

I heard months ago that the new ice in Antioch was going to be used primarily by the Jr Preds.

Maybe along with the new ice at Centennial, they'll also learn how to use an ice shaver.
