I almost went AA within 3 years of starting hockey/skating, but ended up in A in that time span (coach said he didn't want me jumping into AA, so told me to go play for their A team for a year and then come join them the year after). I ended up not doing anything with hockey after HS - decided to pursue an education instead since I knew that at most I'd play Jr B somewhere and I had an injury which stopped me from going to play Jr C anyway.

I've never been a parent but I think parents should just try to support their kids in what they want to do. I never really pursued the Jr C thing since I knew I wouldn't get anywhere in the long run. Admittedly, once in a while I look back and think "mmm what if I ended up playing Jr C? I could've played at least a couple more years of competitive hockey". But we all make our decisions and like everyone else, I just live with mine.
