Pay to Play is here to stay!
Long gone are the days of minor hockey being a simple stepping stone to junior hockey. Instead, we have rep teams during the Spring leagues, high costs for trainers and power skating, and for many, it comes down to the more money you put into your hockey career, the better chance you have to make the next level. So what can you do?
Getting to the next level the traditional way is not cheap. Consider this, an average Midget AAA player in Ontario can expect to pay between $4500 and $5000 per season. This might seem ridiculous, but these numbers are based on a study by The Spec, who took an aggregate survey around Ontario to average costs that players and goalies would expect to pay for the upcoming season. This number covers registration fees, insurance, uniform, any extras including tracksuits, and tournament costs. When you consider the extra that an average player will pay, which include equipment, gas, hotels, food, lost time at work and power skating or shooting classes, and that number can raise up to $15,000. Now add in the common showcase options for elite players which include multiple showcase games, workouts and travel teams, and a top-level Midget prospect could be spending upwards of $20,000. That is a lot of money for a working class family to afford, and luckily there are some other options out there to ensure you are seen by the right decision makers at a fraction of the overall cost of being a Midget AAA player.
The Roster Point Difference
