I did a bit of single A as a kid and a lot of house league... tried out for AA once but didn't make the cut.

House League:

0-1 times a week. At Bantam, house league practices are still pretty good but as you go higher I find that fewer players show up to them. You'll have some fun practices and some tough practices.

Team mates?
Depends on the league, but you can expect around 9 forward, 4 D-men, and a goalie. Usually a mix of skill levels and abilities.

Decent coaches. As per usual, it's often one of the parents on the team.


Once a week.

Scouting? Nonexistent. You may be looked at by other coaches for the select team, but that's it.


2-3 times a week. Expect some high intensity practices and a lot of skills-based stuff.

Team mates?
You're looking at a full roster (12 forwards, 6 D-men, 2 goalies) as the target roster size.

You're going to have a coach certified to coach at that level. How good he is depends on the club.

Hard to say since it is largely dependent on the area at that level.

1-2 games per week. The average time on ice per week is 4-5 hours including both practice and games.

Doubtful. A bottom-feeding AAA team *might* have someone at a game trying to get a AA player to make the jump.
