Hello. and welcome to the latest issue of our newsletter.
portraitSuitcoat100It is becoming a very exciting time of the year, with so many spring and summer tryouts going on. Every  junior draft is now complete, and so teams are beginning to be formed.
I say “beginning”, as those entering junior hockey for the first time, are about to run into “a beast”  like they have never before experienced.
Junior Hockey is very different than other levels of hockey, and not everything is, as it appears, and in some cases roster changes and “tinkering” will take place right into 2018.
Perhaps, some of the most important considerations have to be made by those who will have the opportunity to play Junior Hockey. Remember that not every Junior League is created equal, or considered equal by colleges to recruit from (and it is most often not because of the level of hockey). There is truly a lot of things to consider, before having one’s “junior rights” assigned to a particular team.
A “Life Decision” indeed, which has the potential to determine what your future options may consist of.
We wish everyone the very best of luck in their choices this year, and sincerely hope that things go as planned.
We remind people that important decisions  need to be made by freshmen as early as in Grade 9, and there is nothing more important than ensuring that one’s school marks are as high as possible, as it makes the players future options more readily available.
We are still aware of several prep schools who have inventory available.
In this issue of our newsletter, we present our new Code of Ethics, which has been several months in the making, which will be adhered to in relation to all new clients, to ensure quality and guiding principles in the professional relationships, in which we enter into with our clients. As leaders in this industry, we urge all others to also adopt a similar code.
