My 09 head coach sent out an email in March saying that all kids were invited to this camp. We didn’t do it. Better off spending money on semi-private lessons.
If you can honestly say your kid is one of the top 200 in the country is worth the money to get on their radar. Especially if you are not on one of the top 25 teams in the US.
Getting invited to the actual 68 camp is a big deal. Certainly not the end if you don’t but very good exposure if you do.
Don’t listen to the BS to follow from those that don’t really know the facts.
There was not a lot top players in attendance. But there was a lot parents thinking it was very good hockey! Honestly it was the worst hockey I have seen in long time for the 09 age group.
the futures is an expensive money grab and has zero impact on the overall selection. the 68 is not what it used to be since they moved the recruiting age up. Its now a lot more friends and family type names going. Always good to get on radars if you pay well but some of the 2007 kids that went last year and 2008 kids going this year just aren't very good. Save your money.
Use that $695 fee they charge for private lessons. Any 09 can sign up, nothing but a money grab. If you are good, you will be noticed without having to pay $695.
If your a stud, you will be on the radar!!
Why the need to spend $695 to get on radar?
I’m sure majority of winter teams parti****te in 200x85 tournaments already.
Save that $695.
