If you want your player to develop tangible skips, have them train with a local skills coach. These guys know what they're talking about and actually care about your child's development along with the product they are delivering.
They are bigger scam artist than the rinks! $60-$100 or more for 1 hour of ice time. What a rip-off

Players will increase in speed and strength as they reach full maturity, sure. And can older players improve? Of course. But what comes more easily at 13 is going to take double or triple the time and effort at 18. This is true not only in hockey but in all sports. And yes, skewing to putting the most coaching into the early bloomers, the kids who are bigger younger, misses a ton of potentially great players who mature later. Kids all get to full height/weight around 18-22, but we really only develop or pay attention to the kids who are tall and heavy first and stop developing or looking at late bloomers. Right there, you are essentially cutting out many of your potential great adult players. But again, it's all about winning meaningless 12U and 14U games. Meaningless as far as long term development, anyway. If your goal is to be the best 12 year old player and have parental bragging rights on social media and that's it, then yes, keep playing your kid 80 games a year with only two or three hours on the ice in between each week. Keep driving 100 miles every week for games and searching out better competition that isn't really better competition, only when measured by the yardstick of mid-Atlantic players, when that time in the car would be better spend taking skating lessons.

The problem with private lessons is there are too many frauds and not enough like Barcless

Moron?  Even the most rudimentary math skills skewer your argument and expose the greed of some of these “coaches”.  We all know what ice costs.

Sometimes moron, when 1 on 1, I’ve seen tons of parents spend $60-$100 per kid. 6-10 kids on 1/3 ice costing the coach $100 or &125for the ice.  bringing in $600-$750. How is 1/2 going for ice time idiot

You must be one of those morons paying $75, thinking it’s ice cost. Most coaches get the ice for free from the rink for coaching as a perk
