Anyone know anything about this group and the Rising Prep Training they offer have both a player and goalie? Wondering if it is something my sons should signup for.
Not many I would vouch for, but this one is a good one. JM does a great job finding spots for your kid. Its well run and the price is reasonable if not good. I'm not JM and my kid has skated there.
Same here, gets good skates together with talented kids. Lots of D3 talent according to Jeff Cox
JM does it for the right reasons and his sessions are always high quality.
The guy did more work helping my kid by making calls for me than my $3500 a year advisor did. He wont take any money either for his help which i thought was crazy given how many doors he opened.
Runs good sessions and does not over charge. Very connected in the junior prep snd prep scene. Two admissions people during my sons interviews commented on how many families mentioned this program during the interview process. Would definitely check them out.
What age should one consider camps and prep showcases..? 8th grade or fresh yr and look to repeat.
Depends on what you think works for your kid and situation. Earlier the better in the long run for education and development. I believe you will see a downturn in the numbers going to prep next year for hockey. Full season teams have picked up players this year due to COVID. We'll see how this plays out next year.
Some very bogus info on this post
Good sessions and good coaches. John will do a lot to help good kids and has seen a lot of the ego guys come through and move on to more flashy and hyped programs. My son is where he is because of John and while I am not getting the deal like the guy above, my son is at a great school that was one of his top three choices and we can afford it. John tells the truth and does not engage in myths and misinformation. He sees prep as education and fit first then hockey. Too many live in the clouds and think their kid doesn't need school, just more hockey because they hold that golden lottery ticket.
