Hockey “Family Advisors”?
« on: June 25, 2019, 08:39:19 AM »


ADMIN Update: image added by administrator

I have a 2004 son who is going to be a freshman in high school next year and I’m getting hit up by a couple of these companies   Does anybody have experience with these companies, how expensive are they, what do they really do?

If he is good enough to draw serious interest from colleges you would of heard something and already been on their radar, if not you can do the same thing any adviser" would supply.

These companies are very good at taking your money but not much else.  The same email went to thousands of other parents and kids.  While it is possible your kid could be a special talent getting hit up by these slime-balls isn't

I had a similar personal discussion yesterday. I agree with the above, you can do the ground work and arrange for tryouts, showcasing etc on your own. In this case you pick and choose what it is you're interested in. Hiring an adviser, they typically throw shit at a wall and hope it sticks, ie, they send out lists of players to all of the same people, recruiters, schools, juniors etc and hope somebody responds. Their job is now done, they provide you the details and if you don't agree with it, that's not their problem they got you in contact with somebody.

Unless of course the guy's name is ****, because then he is great and is absolutely worth every penny... In fact you should pay probably him double since he will probably be your coach as well... as well as the scout that is very interested in your kid... and the owner of the team that eventually signs your kid to play for a team that never actually plays a game...  Hey I just realized you can't say that name on here because it comes out as a bunch of stars. ****, ****, ****... Ok lets try this **** boy Pennsylvania, does that work?

And with that, this thread is now officially closed. :>)

There is one company contacting my 14 year old directly on snapchat.  Is that ethical?

Seems to be the way it works now because they're all over social media trying to hit up the players instead of going to the parents. My son has been asked a few times on instagram.
