    Practice Ice - 900.00
    Game Ice - 550.00 (average of 10 per player, should also cover Ref costs, etc).
    Jersey's/Warm up Gear- 300.00
    Coaches Pay- 200.00

    That puts it around 2k, i'll estimate up for around 2.5k to cover whatever.
    With 75 practices, and around 35 game per season, it costs my Pee Wee parents around 1400 if they had jersey's from last season, 1800 for a new player.
    I'm moving to Alaska.

    It's almost 2:1. We have to play a certain amount of games for the league.

    It's as close to 1:1 as it is 2:1
    And it's suppose to be 4:1

    Some USA hockey districts are mandating minimum 3:1 for Pee Wee

    That 1400-1800 included renting stupid greyhound bus's and driver every time we went to anchorage (2-3 trips).

    Also my coaches nor I took a dime, and I took care of coaches hotel rooms.

    With a corporate team sponsor (my company), it knocked each players cost down 350.

    So in actual they paid 1100-1400
    Each player can get individual sponsors so most at the end of the day were under 1k for the season (my goal).

    I get really upset at my hockey costs, but they are a little cheaper.

    $300 for registration
    $300 more you can make back with volounteer hours (Almost impossible with my job, but I'm going to try)
    $250 more in fundraising you pay up front and make back as you sell the raffle tickets. Nobody buys the raffle tickets because every kid in town is selling them. Everyone you ask is also desperately trying to sell the same tickets. hahahaha
    $200 more if you add on both power skating sessions (fall/winter)

    Probably 25 practices, 3 tournaments and 15 games. This is for 6 year olds though.




    I had 3 cousins from same family playing AAA at once. My Aunt and Uncle do pretty well but they had to tell the youngest that AAA would have to wait until his brothers were graduated to junior. It was a tremendous financial burden to have 3 kids in AAA. He stayed away from AAA until Midget. He ended up being the best player of the 3 by a country mile.

    Also, my best man in my wedding is moving up the coaching ranks in junior C (haha) I think he'll get a head coach gig next year, so Dunny may be making a return to behind the bench if I can find a real job around home. I'd love to get back in to it.

    our organization "aviator" got a tier I status this season. so our AA squirt team automatically moved up to play the AAA league that only has like 5 other teams. this sucks ass and not only because we're going to get blown out every league game but the stupid travel too. we'll be spending more time driving than playing. I fucking hate it

    Yeah, everyone wants that 3rd A. They're watering everything down. 2 reasons:
    1. Bragging rights.
    2. $$$$

    no, they're in queens?

    the only other organization in Brooklyn is Abe Stark and it looks like we'll be playing for them next season. they're terrible from what I hear but will have no other choice since they're the only closest AA organization.

    I'm talking to a guy I work with who's on the Prince Albert Minto's executive (Puck you should know the Minto's) This is probably the premier AAA program in Canada, especially being from a small rural city..


    $4500 for registration plus billet fee's. Good Fucking God.

    Our season is 5k. It comes out to about .42 per minute of ice time.

    One thing to note, our comp prices jump at Bantam level. 4-5k

    We are fielding a AAA team at the bantam level (first time in years)...

    And I'm guessing that will be closer to 15k per season.

    Gets expensive at Bantams, (we start flying out of Alaska)

    Are you back with the Avalanche this season? I know it's early but I really think we made a good move to the Rockets and also a good move keeping him on the tier 2 Squirt AA team. We had an early tourney at Amerihealth this past weekend and the team looks pretty solid.

    Yes, back with Avs. Our team imploded. Not one kid from last year's roster is on the team this year. Not 1.
