<15 minutes.  Happy with our club, but also one of the primary reasons we've never really looked to go anywhere else.  Its very convenient with multiple kids playing!

about an hour. we do pass several other rinks, but as i recommend to all parents, you need to see what team/rink/situation/level best fits your kid

might not be the closest team, the one with the best rink.... needs to be the one that is best for your kid given your entire situation. And you need to evaluate the situation BEFORE tryouts. Find out who is going where, where your kid should slot. If your current coach cant give you a straight answer on if your kid is going to make the team, then be prepared to be cut

It depends on you and what you want from the club you pick. The closest may not be the best option. I drive 90min each way 3 times a week. 3 clubs are within 45min to an hour but don't offer what the club we play for offers. Somethings to consider are, do they have a gym and if so do they have actual trainers, practice lengths, quality coaching, goalie training if your kid is a goalie.

Wow, that is a long drive. I assume it is for a good AAA or AA program?

Our rink is 50 minutes from my house. There is a rink just under 20 minutes and my kid used to play there. We didn't care for the group who ran the club and the local rink politics, so we left and went to a rink a little further. Other than the rink 20 minutes away, we had a few additional choices that range from 50 to 70 minutes. (for reference, he plays lower A and has no interest in a AA or higher program).

Nope, kid plays A hockey and was offered AA by 2 of the closer rinks. Nothing like getting home at 1130-12 and getting up at 4am for work twice a week for practice and rushing to make early goalie clinic once a week and wouldn't change a thing. It's good quality bounding time, 3 hours in the truck of actual convo instead of him being in his room talking to friends and playing games.
The club is great and offers everything that checks our boxes.

A few years ago we use to travel 2 and a half hours for good hockey because where we live there isn't much.  The last two seasons we travel around 1 and a half hours.  I have learned that even though the hockey team can be successful on the ice other factors matter more.  Good teammates and positive reinforcement matter more than the record on myhockeyrankings.
