Yup. If he ain't into it though the rest of the team's parents will probably try to drum him out so I concur, you have to go and cheer him on. That means you gotta get some hockey swag too. No pink polos like HF.

Hopefully you would have done that even if that WASN'T said. But anyway, WTF is this $125 admin fee? That sounds like a ton of crock if you ask me.

Welcome to the wonderful world of youth sports. How about "fulfill your volunteer hours or be charged $100"
Or my personal favorite "sell these 10 calendars at $20 each by Jan 1st. Thanks for participating in our required fundraiser!"

I think y'all are starting to make Porsche hope his kid ditches hockey after the first week.

Not at all! Just giving it some reality. This is our fifth year in it and we're still going. It's a great sport, just expensive.
Just like dance, figure skating...

Are you sure there is not an ice time charge per month on top of that?

My 18 yr old nephew plays for a Junior B team, I think it's $6k.

AAU volley ball for the 14 yr old niece is $1600.

Dennis my old friend, when the yongen decides he wants to try something new, the first thing you need to say is "that's gonna take a lot of time,practice and energy by YOU!" than explain what commitment is to them in a way they can understand and that you expect them to finish what they start! When they figure out that you mean it they will only "try" what they really have a interest in. Your going to run into high costs no matter what the kiddo's do if they decide they like it than its well worth it. I got lucky mine likes scouting where he gets to do many different things at one cost, not cheap but it has value. My daughter did dance,played every instrument known to man and singing lessons, all expensive and she doesn't use any of those skills now that shes all grown up but it was still worth all the $$$
