3rd - If you aren't going to play pros, play house league. That right there cuts the costs in half

4th - The only equipment I regularly updated was my stick. Other than that Skates and Helmet were the only others I ever got new. Everything else just seemed to work for a while, and I always liked my equipment worked in


But ya, I understand the sport if the upper class sport.

The bolded part I agree with so much. Too many organizations pushing ambitious parents that Johhny must play in this league to develop to his full potential.

I post on another message board for goalies where a prominent goalie coach posts. I've heard him said many times that unless your playing in the most obscure league, you will be noticed for your talents.
