AAA cost?

Figuring it out

I'm hoping someone can help me out with some ball park numbers. I'm trying to make a semi-informed decision about my player going AAA or not and cost is a factor. In addition to club fees what else am I looking at and ballpark how much?

Uniform package fees?
Tournament Fees?
Hotel Fees?
Other travel Fees?

Anything I'm not thinking of or just a ballpark number for what I'd be spending for a season at AAA?

Thank you for the help.

I think this topic has been covered atleast a million times, but I'll bite. $12K minimum after all said and done.

Don't come to N54 looking for answers. Looking for answers here is like looking for gold in a portable sh*tter.

Those totals are Illinois totals. Much cheaper fees in the 49 others. Honestly

don't forget your time. unless you live next door to the rink, you'll be one of the many who logs hours and hours of time getting to and from practices, off ice sessions, team meetings, games, showcases, tournaments, etc. and then you gotta sit on your butt and twiddle your thumbs because all the AAA clubs in illinois are located in the boonies. i hope you have a private driver or at least a cooperative wife.

I have three kids that paly (played). AAA was right for one and not for the other two since we do not have large amounts of money relatively speaking to spend on this sport even though AA is a shit load too. Since you are asking, I assume money is an issue for you.

If your kid has the ability to shine at this level, do it - certainly not before bm. Any $ spent at squirt or pw is wasted because if he fails to shine, you will be stuck in the fourth line role for many more years of big $. It is hard to go back if he is not cut from a team and they keep taking him to fill out a roster.

Mine that played AAA was recruited pretty hard so it was clear he had the ability. Today he is USHL and committed to D1. Teams wanted him and offered cost deferment. If he got there and sucked it would be VERY HARD to bail. So, don't ask the cost for one season but do the math for as many years as he has through mm or MM.

I'm hearing that Squirt Major fees vary depending upon the club. I heard this past weekend that TI may be near 7k.
