How common is it for u17 players to make u18 team? It takes a pretty amazing player to pull this off!

you would have to think the U17 would actually have to be quite a bit better than the U18 player they beat out
if they were equal they would just be depriving the U18 player of a chance to play for Alta, with the U17 player having the chance to play U17 in 2018 and U18 in 2019   
never know, only the coaches  do

It's not that uncommon.  Some U17 age players have been named tournament all-stars and played for Team Canada U18.

So few U18 and tbh upcoming grade 12 skill players. Very very few will play University, other than playing in Toronto, sask or AUS.

It really shows how bad these players have developed the last few years.

A change must be made to further develop our players starting at 13 yrs old. All of these Batam skill players are barely 5’5” tall and 130lbs. The skill grade 10s are barely 5’8” and 150lbs. Very embarrassing Calgary players who tried out for U18.

This year U18 will go winless! Mark my words!

A few years ago you had some Bantam players struggling to make the weight limit to carry the ball. For a few the weight limit was too low. Some became D Lineman! A few had to go on strict diets.

Oh how long ago that was. We now have Bantam ball carriers at 130lbs and grade 10/11 at 150-170 lbs.

If you remember 2-3 years ago Grade 12 ball carriers were 190lbs +

The years of Calgary dominance is over. The years of young men playing is over. Welcome to the years of small boys.

unless they are extremely, like really really fast and there is probably less than 2-3 players in the city like that, these really small kids just get beat up when they finally play a good defense
once they get slammed to the turf by a 250 to 325 pound D lineman they look like they want to get the hell out of there and play badminton or volleyball

will see how Team Alberta does, that will indicate how well it was picked, a lot of politics when picking from a whole province 
every region needs to be represented is the unwritten rule
