Re: Normal tourney tuition mark up?

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.

As someone who has been through it as a coach, and a parent with zero involvement.

This is al about FOMO, just like the rest of hockey.

Hold off, wait til a few days before when you get calls and invites because they need a player, and play for free or discount rate .

My kid probably did three tourneys a summer between u8 and u18 and we probably paid a total of 500 bucks for about 25 tourneys.

the same tourneys that were invite only, elite, showcase, etc...

Re: Normal tourney tuition mark up?

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.
