All players develop at different rates, and so much of what separates players at young ages is skating proficiency. Physical size and strength plays a role, but so does instruction.
Too often, young players find early success in recreational hockey and skip over critical foundational development in favor of programs that promise "elite competition" and team success.
As size and strength balances over time, the players who have focused on skating technique and skill acquisition often pass the players who put individual development on the back burner.
