friends kid did valley 2 years ago. said they had 1 coach on ice with over 30 kids out there....how much real coaching interaction are you going to get with that. he said his kid got nothing out of the program, it seemed more like a money making operation than an instructional program.

what's funny about your question is that the main manager of the valley elite program had his kid enrolled in the Bulldogs program last year, that alone should tell you which one is better......
no way

I highly doubt someone would contribute to a competitors business. Thats the problem with topix you don't what is really true. im sure the owner of McDonald's doesnt eat at burger king.

The guys kid skated with the bull dogs and continues to do so. He's got the bases covered for next season too, don't worry about it. Don't forget about blue line as well for another option. Either that or bull dogs is far superior. Valley elite is not even for area kids, it's mostly for kids from down state to make some money. If you think there are legitimate scouts coming to watch 11-12 year olds skate you are high.

Jon is a great guy. If you think he's scamming you then don't sign up. What other program do you get awesome jerseys like the ones we are getting. Valley elite is first class all the way, it's too bad people in this area are too ignorant to see that what those gentlemen are trying to do is best for everyone. I wish valley elite was year round so my kid wouldn't have to play for our local garbage organization. Go valley!!!! See what jerseys you get if you sign up for "iceology"
thats great

I agree with 100 percent, sir. don't know much about the bulldogs, but valley elite is the way to go. I have my kids in that program and it's the best. we get great return for our money and the kids are getting so much better. now my kids know how to stop.
Thank you valley elite

I owe everything to valley elite and it's coaching staff for the improvement in my son. I was not even going to sign up for valley elite and a friend convinced me. I've never felt ripped off and I've always felt the money was well worth the ice time and things that were included. I agree valley elite should be year round, that would be awesome. I'm proud my son skates for valley elite and it angers me when people take cheap shots at something designed to benefit area youth. Shame on you people.

valley elite should be year round. with the professional coaching staff they have, it would be a huge success. people around here complain about everything. this is a top notch program, run by the most knowledgeable people around the game. can't wait for valley elite night at a comets game. you don't get that kind of perk with other programs.
Go valley

All my kid talks about is the showcase this weekend. So many opportunities it's incredible. I don't even know how anyone can accuse them of ripping people off with all the stuff they give you they must lose money. Great coaches, great kids, great parents, I can't wait for this weekend!!!!

sorry kids, no vacation this year. we have to pay for valley elite. maybe when mom and dad realize that you are not going to the nhl, then we can stop this nonsense and go on vacation.
You are an idiot

Playing hockey is a vacation for my son and our family. Spending time with the great families and coaches of valley elite is better than any famy vacation. Have you seen any of the valley elite tournament teams play? They are packed with talented and committed kids that love the sport of hockey. The coaching staff is second to none and they will be the best looking team on the ice this season. Go take you're kids to disneyworld and waste your money, I bet you're kids probably hate you and aren't good enough to participate in a top notch program like valley elite. All valley, all the time, we love it.

Where do you suggest I take my family for vacation? How I choose to spend my money is none of your business. The valley elite hockey family is second to none and guess what, I'd take a vacation with them to a hockey tournament any day of the week. Wait until Friday night when the auditorium is over run with valley elite. Families from all over the northeast will be there celebrating an awesome program that is second to none. Commitment my friend, you and your kid don't have it. I bet you cheat on your wife too you loser.

you are a typical sports parent who lives in a fantasy world. your kid is the best at everything he/she does and you have a twelve inch c@ck. Keep living in your fantasy world. You are a troll.

Instead of random speculation about how great you Valley Elite cheerleaders (who are probably just Jon Bryant posting) think Valley Elite is why don't you look up the 2014 tournament results. The results speak for themselves. Valley Elite was in almost every age group in several low level tournaments and lost badly in all age groups.....we are talking dead last for most of it's teams! Valley Elite had 3 2001 teams in the recent Lobsterfest tournament and all 3 teams did horrible. Jon's son (who is really a rec or house player) is on one of those teams. Valley Elite also had to completely pull out if the May Chicago tournament for all it's birth years because word was out how bad the players on the team were and most parents canceled on Valley Elite. So if that us your definition of AAA or elite then Valley Elite is for you. I also have a used and beat up 2000 Chevy cavalier I want to sell to you for the low asking price if $200,000.00. Valley Elite is about as bad as you can get for hockey and don't take my word for it......just look at the Valley Elite teams and the results and all the canceled tournaments......that says it all!
