Ken Campbell doesn't get it. The sheer fact you can move your kid from a 0.1% chance of making the NHL (AAA team) to a 4% chance of making the NHL .. why would you not do the Brick? He is forgetting about the rates these kids are captains of teams, on provincial/national teams, making it to OHL/Div 1 College in US. The Brick is a gateway to so much learning, excitement, experience. He doesn't get it.

NHL IS the goal. I bet he gets that your kid should focus on grade 5, friendships, and learning to be a good person

Just my two cents, from the dad of a kid who's kid played in the Brick tournament and is currently in playing Div 1 College hockey. Looking back in hindsight, much of what Ken is saying is 100% true, many of these elite kids would be stars regardless of playing in the Brick tournament. I was one of the suckers that pushed his son to play spring hockey and dished out the $$$. I'm sorry to say, but you won't see the father's of the true elites on this blog arguing whether the Brick is worth it or not. Its generally the fringe AAA players that get sold a dream from the likes of TB, TPH et al, all while taking your money to the bank. The interesting part is that many of these teams will take credit for the development of the kids for that short while they are playing and then blast their videos online to further promote their brands. Many of these hockey programs offer subpar coaching anyway so aside from the allure of this tournament, there isn't much value for the money. Its all a business and nothing more; they offer the true elite kids a free (or quasi free) ride to the Brick in the hopes that other non-elite kid parents will euphorically throw down their credit cards. Wake up people, if your kid has the drive and work ethic, the Brick will do nothing else but waste away precious summer months that you can be spending together as a family as opposed to padding somebody else's pockets!

If your kid loves hockey and your family does too.. and you want to play hockey in the Summer and have the money to spend - do the Brick, its amazing fun and great experience. If no to any of those, take the summer off and save some money. Its not that complicated folks. 10 year olds dude... 10 year olds

If you seriously think that having played in the Brick will influence a coach into making your kid a captain at the Jr or NCAA level you’re insane. Or even boost their chances of getting that far.
It’s a fun tournament and great experience but in 2-3 years means absolutely nothing. Understand that.

Too many delusional parents. If a kid is really good at 10 and continues to improve along with a strong hockey IQ and being an overall athlete they will play high level hockey regardless of the Brick. Why not check stats of how many Brick kids made the NHL or how many like McDavid never even played in the Brick. Brick might be a fun experience but means nothing if the kid will not continue to improve. When the kid is 15 and is not performing at a high level no coach will care about whether he played in the Brick at 10 or not. Let kids develop, have fun and enjoy minor hockey. Very very few will make the NHl.

McDavid said himself that he would've loved to play in the Brick. Obviously it would've had zero impact on him making it or not. But he said his friends who went had a blast and he would've loved to go. They were going on a family vacation the year of the brick.
