my son was born in connecticut. he started playing organized hockey at 4 yrs. old. it cost me $895 in 2005 for just him to play house league.
we now live in winnipeg manitoba. i have THREE children playing hockey total cost is about $1150.
there are over 100 rinks in winnipeg.(9 in my neighborhood alone). most run by the city. plus there are tons of outdoor rinks that are FREE to play on for about 4 months of the year.
fairfield county connecticut has a comparable population to winnipeg and there were MAYBE 12 rinks in the county.and all are privately owned.and NONE are free.
those are your differences between the US, and Canada.
canada it is a way of life...the us it is like a cult .
