There's been a lot of buzz on here about 7 & 8 year hockey players and apparently that is too young to even give a **** about what they are doing or how they are doing right? I'm curious as to what age the dboard thinks parents should get invested in their kid as far as hockey goes.
Also, if it really doesn't matter why are there even different levels for hockey at these ages? Why not just have one level or even one league right up until the kids go to high school? Because it doesn't matter right?
You get invested at 3 years old. It starts with the lessons and the mini sticks.
Because it’s about money. Youth hockey, and other sports, have become private business. With that they find ways to keep money coming in like making exclusive leagues like the fed and e9. All the orgs in each league have their charters and no one else can get in so it funnels kids into those orgs.
Then why do people care about playing club at these ages ? Better yet why do people care about leagues and levels at these ages ?
15. That is when usa hockey starts scouting your bender.
We didn’t really care much until Prep mainly because we have other kids and this costs 12k per year. Now he’s 19,living away from home playing jrs and we are just waiting to hear what schools he got into for next year. Don’t really care if hockey is part of the plan or not, time to be a man.
