Re: it's good to have a lot of money in hockey

So if these numbers are correct the question is do you spend over $150,000 on your bender playing "Elite" from 6 to 18, knowing that 99.8% of the time he will only play below the D3 level while paying full amount for college.
Or do you stop the insanity, put him in a cheaper program, and use that money to pay for his college, have him play ACHA hockey, and load your retirement account?



Re: it's good to have a lot of money in hockey

1- 2008 Elite
2- About $6K in regular season tuition, so easily $10-11K by the time all else is factored in
3- Tough to plan anything other than hockey travel over weekends for more than half the year, work production slips

3-No sacrifice on my end but he misses out on plenty of skiing and other sports.
