I can't think of paid coaches either, other than the OHL. Mind you in the GTA it isn't uncommon to have NHLers and AHLers volunteer. At this stage of the game no way would I pay the equivalent of university tuition($5000) for coaching.

Same here in the GTA. There are so many hockey opportunities outside of school that it wouldn't make sense to have a high school programme.

The concessions aren't open for the 06:30 practices LOL. I don't mind paying snacks at the rink though because it's less fundraising for the parents.
