Saw the Royals fee is $200 and VFC is $500.

Did BB ruin it or did the previous owner wanting out ruin it? I guess when the old owner was looking to sell the parents should have banded together and bought the rink. Always big bad Black Bear that is keeping rinks from being bought out for buyers that may get rid of it all together. I wish BB was around 13yrs ago to buy our local rink that is now a diesel garage and sales. Instead of driving 15 min I have to drive an hour to a rink.

Who cares. Hockey is too expensive now and my kids will be leaving for other sports. Soccer (EDP= $2.5k) Lacrosse ($500) = $3000. Soccer = spring, summer camp, fall and indoor and lacrosse= winter clinics, & spring. Ice Hockey is too expensive, you need to spend on power skates & privates, skate sharpening, travel 4-5 times a season, and uniforms (included in other sports price) to be any good. After all is said and done you spend 2x what tuition is. To be good at lacrosse you need a stick, ball and wall and Soccer you need a ball and backyard. It is just not feasible for most families and that is why NJ is not producing a high number of top notch players anymore. NJ is a hot bed of talent for soccer and lacrosse because it is cheaper, you can practice everything on your own and more kids play it. Ice Hockey needs to reevaluate what they are doing or the sport will die in NJ.

So why are you posting about it?  Isn’t there a soccer board somewhere?

VFC is really trying to kids in with $500 tryout fees.  I hope a good portion of that is a down payment on the tuition.

I always thought the Enron guys were the smartest guys in the room, but the guy that's had enough of hockey's cost and moving his kids to other sports... that is the smartest guy in the room.

There's something to be said for low cost sustainability.  The greed is pushing the envelope and numbers will fall, and the great minds will wonder why.
