I watched my grandson play in the GF hockey PWAA tournament this past weekend. His Fargo team played "GF PWAA Red" and "Bismarck PWAA". Very good & competitive games. There is also a GF PWAA Blue team that he has played in the past. Maybe they don't call themselves AA teams unless they are in a PWAA tournament. You can't hold the better players back to lower levels. They will just go somewhere else for the competition like move across the border to EGF. I always believed, "if you want to be the best you have to play against the best."
