It's your money spend it how you want. Sounds like you are a little to involved in juniors hockey career. Time to take off the team jacket find yourself a hobby. Lighten update pal, it's all over once they hit high school.
These spring and summer tournaments are great. Hockey season in New England is way to short, only 8 months. Pros and college kids are pussies taking the summer off. Happy to pay $350 per weekend to be in a hockey rink on the 4th of July. Baseball, Lax and any other outdoor activities are overrated.
Depends on the skill level of your kid, usually between 200-250, but there will be several kids on each team that are playing for free.
Put the scholarship talk aside. It's a pipe dream for most kids in any sport. Not getting money to play a college sport doesn't make your kid a failure. It's the norm. With that said, there are a ton of non scholarship track & field, soccer, football, baseball, lacrosse (name the sport here)...spots available at countless colleges through out the country if kids want to put the work in and try to continue their athletic endeavors after high school. I get it, every kid that plays youth hockey wants to play at BC or BU and then go on to the NHL. What I don't get is why every youth hockey parent in the state thinks it's their kids God given right to get that hockey scholarship, and then proceed to the NHL without passing go. It's totally bizarre and irrational behavior. If your kid is consistently dominating his peers as a higher level Bantam player, continues that dominance as a Freshman and Sophomore varsity high school/prep player with kids that are now older, and gets invited to the USHL combine, than you clearly want to think about specialization. Until then, keep it real. I'm pretty sure your kids will thank you for it later.
I'm guessing your kid was invited to the USHL combine?
so your kid got asked but you didnt want to waste your time and $??? Instead your boy sits home while you troll on the dboard... lucky him!!
