Good article. We don't agree with all of it, but the core message is 100% accurate. The best mite will in most cases not turn out to be the best bantam. And at some point it all evens out and the 'good' kids will look average amongst their peers as time goes on. As kids grow, get bigger, stronger, and most importantly gain maturity.... they catch up to the kid who was a standout player at age 7 and 8. The exceptions are Panarin, Crosby, Kane, Toews.... you get the point.
www.admkids.com Talent is fleeting. At first glance, it’s easy to compare your little skater with others on his or her team. But at such a young age, does it really matter? And do the hockey skills your 8-year-old shows today give any indication of how good they’ll be as a teenager and beyond? Former NHL defens

WHY I HAVE PAID SO MUCH FOR MY SON TO PLAY HOCKEY!
by This Hockey Mom
I never imagined myself a Hockey Mom, that destiny wasn’t even on the radar of possibilities. I had never watched the game - I grew up in basketball and football country. But clearly God had a plan for me. At the ripe old age of 6, my son, (a late bloomer by hockey standards) decided that he was taking up Canada's national sport after being exposed to the local ECHL team. The guys on this team fueled his Love of the sport as we became fast friends with them and they encouraged him every day. He worked hard EVERY day at the rink to "catch up" to those so far ahead of him!
Over the many years since then, I have repeatedly been asked “Why do You pay so much money for your son to play hockey?” People often times in sheer disbelief of the figures. But What no one (except for other hockey parents) understands is that my son (& I) have gained so much more than just his “playing hockey” from this experience and paying for the opportunity for him to be on a team is a small price compared to what he and I have been given in return!
Hockey has truly defined our lives now for more than a decade. Some of my favorite conversations have taken place in my car on the long road trips to and from games, with him quizzing me about “did you see” that goal, move, hit or assist. We have been a Mother and Son team, traveling together on a journey that I don’t really want to end.
This season as I watched him leave for his last year as a junior hockey player, all the memories from the last 14 years flooded in as he pulled out of the driveway to make his long trek across the country. Remembering the times so long ago that I had to help him put on all his gear and tie his skates. I’d give him one last instruction before he got on the ice - “Skate hard and keep your head up.” And then he’d grab his stick, depart the locker room strutting his stuff, but always looking to see where I was going to be in the rink during the game.
Now my time is spent watching him on the big screen TV from the comfort of my living room because he billets 2300 miles away playing Junior A level. Now I am always looking for his name and favorite number adorned across his back and I can’t help but be overcome by an intense feeling of pride. This emotion is not a reflection of his ability nor is it attached to his performance. (Although he’s had many moments of glory when my shouts from the stands can be heard across the arena.). But Rather, the love for him—my boy in the helmet, jersey and hockey socks—comes from an admiration of his dedication and determination he demonstrated from such a young age.
We sacrificed the normal way of life such as weekends and holidays with family. He’d sit in a classroom for seven hours a day and spend his nights on the road to the rink. He did his homework in the car and ate dinner on the run. He gave up hanging out with school friends and free time “because I’ve got hockey”. He missed birthday parties, sleepovers and even prom to keep his commitment to the team or ensure a good night’s rest before a big game. But I know he made up for those losses with the values and experiences that he gained by being a hockey player.
So here is WHY I’ve paid so much…. I believe that his time on the ice has taught him things he couldn’t have learned by sitting on the couch at home. He has learned how to be a teammate and how to make a sacrifice for others. He has learned how to pick himself up by the boot straps and make the most of every situation. He has learned to deal with disappointment. He has learned about determination, dedication and what it takes to reach your goals. He has learned about work ethic and knows that you earn what you are willing to work hard for. And he has friendships and bonds with young men that will provide him wonderful memories and connections that he will have forever!
I sent my little boy to play hockey and hockey has returned him to me as a respectable, dedicated, determined, fine young man! And I thank him for making me a HOCKEY MOM. I will forever cherish my spot on the glass watching and cheering him on because these years have become PRICELESS!
