I couldn’t care less where the money goes. My kid loves tournaments. Great chance to meet different players and best of all have fun.
There’s nothing wrong with that
There's a reason he charged $230 and not $200 or even $250. Just ask him.
$255 for a tournament next week. Includes cheap jersey (no socks). Coach is profiting about $1000 which he will use towards cooler filled with IPA’s post games Saturday.
If you think the coaches that just show up with a roster and jerseys in hand are making any more than their $300 coaching stipend you clearly have not been around the rinks very long.
My experience for a fairly well known spring/summer program in regards to the financial component can't be beat. They charge us $285 - we got full uniform to keep (jersey/socks...pretty good quality far from a $10 practice jersey, got one practice for those that could make it before the event, access to photos that the owners wife takes (no charge), and the coach offered all the players detailed feedback on their performance after the event. They treated the players well for a weekend summer event. I've been told this is the norm for how they operate. This was our first experience.
