$500 a youth player is with the tax is inside each organization.
And whoever the idiot is that calls and CDC tier 2 knows nothing about hockey. Half of the EHL teams would beat most NCDC teams.
Mite and squirt parents aren’t paying $500 a player to help fund the NCDC.
Nobody would do that.
Many ncdc teams treat their players horribly...expect this to only get worse moving forward. Who would billet a player now, and what happens if that player is traded? Would a host family be willing to bring another stranger into their home without testing? Rockets didn’t provide locker rooms for players, bandits folded and didn’t provide players with sticks. Hard to call yourself Tier II hockey when your financial basis is built upon upcharging youth players who will never be part of the ncdc program.
"...when your financial basis is built upon upcharging youth players who will never be part of the ncdc program."
Its sad how many imports with agents that arrive and play one year are drafted and tendered over local players that spent years "developing" in the very program that now says they're not good enough.
