Sorry they didn't ask your kid back
So I can get rich running a summer tournament team?
After I shell-out the $ for the uni's and socks, have 3 'no-show' kids, have the dad with two kids that want's a discount, have the kid come in for a game and pay pro rata, have the kid that promises he will send you the money and doesn't, the days 9 kids don't show-up because it's 85 degrees and sunny, the super star that never pays full boat, the poor kid that really can't pay....
Yup, it's a regular profit center.
Sorry you dont know how to run a business
Oh I run multiple businesses...just not hanging around a rink in the summer cashing a stack of $200 checks.
fact - top summer team in new england charges $200 tryout fee, $800 player fee (includes jersey, 3 hrs of practice), $250 x 3 tournaments, $500 x 1 tournament. Cost for a 2008 birth year to play in 4 tournaments and 3 hrs of practice = $2250.
That does not include travel to and from, hotel stay, etc.
Thats how you run a business.
If you are hanging out in front of the locker room in Bridgewater hoping for kids/payment to show up in July...you sir do not know how to run a business
it gets you exposure
you play tournaments with kids you know or don't
and get on the ice to have fun
Finally, someone making sense of it all. Well said, thank you!
