We can't wait for the showcase in march. To think that a local program gives our child the opportunity to play in a tournament in Chicago and get exposure like valley elite offers our kids is awesome. When you hear someone criticizing this wonderful organization just ask yourself why. Most likely their kid does not belong or the parents are not committed. My son has played with them for 2 years now and we love it. I wish they would run a year round program so we can get out from under the politics that hold our kids back from these opportunities and also keep our kids from playing with other kids who are not at the same level. It's not fair aaa caliber players are stuck in a team with house players and parents that do not put hockey first. Go valley in 2014!!

I agree. These parents are delusional. Save the money you are considering spending on hockey and put it towards a good therapist. this might stop your kid from burying an ax in your head when he is older. Newsflash, your kid hates hockey and hates you for making him play twelve months a year.

Are you people kidding me? This is a hockey program that kids get recognized for their future. Valley elite exposes kids to coaches of all levels that will help the ones who want to continue ahead and pursue this great sport. It's not fair that other kids are denied opportunities because a group of parents at these local levels have no commitment to the sport. Instead they want little billy to sit around and play Xbox for two weeks eating donuts doing nothing. Travel hockey is just what it says. It's a lifestyle and a commitment. Stop trashing a top notch program that's just doing right by these kids. You people are the ones that are sick. Kids who play for valley elite succeed at burying their opponents, not axes in their parents head you moron.

It's official, NHYH allowed a team to replace its players with kids from down state. I say congratulations to that mangy scraggly fox that pulled that one off. You people should stop blaming him, he's only doing what everyone allows him to do. He throws it back in your faces every single time. NHYH has sunk to an all time low. We were so happy when he left us for nh!! Go wolf pack!

Lets stop criticizing people that are taking our sport to the next level. This is ridiculous that you people criticize these guys. Whitestown wishes they had the nh kids and top notch coaches. By the way, my kid will be at the 2014 showcase and im guessing your kid will not.....

Ok, you got me. Oh man. I just really need people to sign up to front the costs for me and my friends. Please won't you help me? Sign up today and it will be a great experience, I promise. Teams will certainly be selected in a fair way although if you pay double you are automatically on whatever team you want.

Say all you want, valley elite means success. Dont listen to these people who bounce from one organization to another. People always hate good things because they are jealous. 2014 will prove to be the most successful one yet, just watch and see.
go valley

great program. Run by professionals and the kids love it. Of course the haters will bash it, but that is because their kids couldn't hack it. Don't listen to the bashers, make you own intelligent decision. Go Valley Go.

Im totally with go valley on that one. These coaches truly are the best. To think these idiots left NH because of the coaches is unimaginable. To get that level of instruction year round is amazing and with the exposure you get playing for valley if your kid has anything they will be noticed. Visit the valley elite website for full details on how to advance your son or daughters future in hockey.

Oh and by the way, my kid loves me very much because I put him and his hockey future first. Bury an ax in my head, what sick person thinks like that?

you had my kid in your program. he got nothing out of it(1 coach on the ice with over 30 kids, what a joke). oh and by the way he's been asked by several organizations to try out including NH.....good luck, he ain't coming back to that circus.....

To support this group is just out of line. Talk to many families in nh and they will tell you how badly it has ruined the organization. The peewee team is in disarray and the organization revolves around that team like it is the sun. Now I'm not saying a kid will bury an ax in their parents head like the crazy person above but I do agree they are not doing what's best by these kids. What a shame, it's all about the money. As a former board member once said, valley elite is run by a down state machine and it's all about making money, not developing hockey players. Now 5 kids who have always played hockey in nh are being replace with kids from Long Island, are you kidding me? Who allows that. Please let coach know the Long Island kids will not be playing high school hockey in nh!!!
Program is a rip off

This guy has ripped off more people with this waste of hockey he promotes. He is simply a control freak who MUST control ever aspect of the sport his kid is involved in. 30 kids to 1 coach is being generous, it was 45-1 when my kid went. The 3 on 3 was horrible, coaches were never there, and the tournaments were a nightmare and the selection process is a joke. NHYH has lost a small fortune because of this program and even this guy himself took his kid to utica but yet he's still on the board. What a joke!!! Sign up and enjoy suckers

twas the night before christmas and all through the rink
the parents were huddled having a drink
the custom socks were hung in the lockers with care
hoping that swiper soon would be there
the parents were hoping for some luck
they might get shoes or a stick that fell off a truck
the players were nestled all snug in their beds
while visions of canada danced through their heads
swiper in his members only and i in my hat
i wrote out a check while swiper just sat

shall i continue.

You people are insane with all this shit talking! Who is "swiper" and "he" or "they"? Speak direct and clear about the stuff. i have read the post about this youthh hockey crap for a while. The trouble makers that type this shit should be shot. My daughter has been in NHYH for 3 years now, no problems yet. She also did a summer program put on by valley two years ago, again, no problems with the program. Why all the shit talk?
