Research for school work
1) At what age/level does youth hockey end and adult hockey begin?
2) What is the biggest achievement to qualify a hockey player as being a "successful" hockey player?
3) What level do most youth hockey parents see their player playing to?
A. Junior B. High School C. Prep School D. College
4) For parents that have an average youth hockey player, do feel embarrassed that your player is not "elite"?
5) For parents with a player entering their Pee Wee Minor Year, would you accept an increased tuition of $2500 if the coach was an Ex-NHL Player and did not have a son or daughter on the team?
6) When was the last time you asked your player if he or she saw themselves playing for the remainder of their life?
#5 meaning is an extra $2500 on top of that 3k
I would pay $100000 to have an independent coach vs a daddy coach!
1) When playing does not need to be even close to equal
2) Varsity Hockey
3) High School
4) My kids are average. Both are under 11. No jealousy. Long journey ahead and nobody knows who will pan out
5) Can’t really stress about money if you have a hockey family. First year peewee is important so if the ex NHLer turned coach seemed level headed and like he was able to coach well than 2500 extra isn’t huge deal. Could care less about having a kid in team
6) Joke about it all the time with older one says he will be on a NHL Stanley cup winning team someday
1- Youth hockey ends when they start to drive to games themselves
2- When the kid looks forward to being at practice, games, tournaments
4- No parent should feel embarrassed but some get a little sour
5- Yes but I dont care if they have a kid on the team
6- Never asked him but he loves playing mens league with me in the summer
Help me explain why parents think their kid is the $@!$
