They all get in! It's just a matter of how far you are willing to travel. This is a money maker for the organization. The under 17 OHF development camp is a different story however.

If you bother to do the math, it is hardly a money maker. Between room and board, meals, apparel, ice time the fee is nominal.

Btw, not everyone gets in.

Facts are your friend.

96AAA Parent

P.S. My son went to Barrie last year and really, really enjoyed it.

I gather all the AAA kids who apply get in, and then it's a draw for the AA/As. Heard it's a good weekend. And ya, at $425, that will cover only their costs with very little left over, especially the way these kids eat!

You should get your facts straight 96AAA parent. All the AAA kids get in (who register) and then if there are any remaining spots the AA kids get a crack at it. Been there and done it before (had a number of AA kids that year).

1:43 We had some AAA kids from my son's team last year not get in. Why? Because they want representation from all areas. Sometimes there are more kids than spots.

How about you do a little research 97 dad?

Not sure how you can say it is not a money maker. At just 2 venues you get 240 kids at $425 a pop which gives you a total of $102 000. Do you really think that they actually spend all that cash? It is definitely a money maker.

How much do you think it costs to put up that many kids for 2 nights? Let's say in a double room $75/night so there is $150. Food? Let's say $100 (2.5 days). Apparel? Let's say $100/player (underarmour shirt, shorts, game jersey and socks). So you're at $350 already and haven't taken care of coaches rooms, food, gas money never mind ice time.

Still a money maker?

Agreed. There will be lots of know-nothings come on here and gripe about cost and it being a money maker. Glad I sent my son and he loved it.

P.S. The spring/summer leading into Minor Midget it seems like everyone sees a big dollar sign on your forehead. Dryland training, spring tournaments, skating, etc. Be careful, but this event I would do over in a heart beat!

Went last year "Oshawa" my kid thought it was great,real eye opener as to the rigour's of playing at the next level plus many scouts in attendance,good opportunity for many to get on the 'Radar' if there not already on it,I don't regret one nickle of what it cost me.

My son went last year. Great experience. Roomed with a buddy on another team and had so much fun. It's not a money maker at all you bunch of self serving tighwads that spend $200 on a dinner for you and your ugly spouse.Your kid deserves it. And if he wasnt selected don't sweat it, it's not the end of the world. Under 17, is selection only so he may not be picked. Go when you can.

My son went two years ago and it was a great experience for him. Several of the guys on his team are now playing in the O and a coule of them will make it to the NHL. A few of the other guys he has met up with again over the past couple of years at tournaments and he still chats with all of them regularly on FB. I highly recommend the experience. Not many are going to make it to the show, so why not give them as many great hockey memories as we can.

Great experience. The boys room with a teammate on their own and spend the weekend playing hockey without their parents doting over them at all. New friends are made and they also learn from OHL coaches and players as well.

Folks
The selection process for the U16 is a draw, what can be so complicated about this. This camp unlike the U17 is not the top kids, it`s simply a draw from all the applicants. Don`t read more into it that what it is, this being said it is a great experience for those kids that will attend.

Have 2 boys, different ages.

Selection for boy 1 wasnt a problem. Went to Kitchener and loved it.

Boy 2 wasnt selected initially in random draw, but I put him on the waiting list. He was given an invite a week before, went to Kitchener and loved it.

Boy 1 also went to U17 ( less cost, but no overnight) locally and then to 2 nd camp overnight at Guelph. Boy 2 is waiting to hear if he has been selected for initial U17 camp.

All good value for the experience, but don't fool yourself that the selection for the U17 team hasnt already been determined.

Response to 8:21

I stand corrected, it`s a draw where AAA players are given priority. My main point here is that other than playing AAA hockey, no other criteria`s are used to decide who attends the camp.Ìt is not the best, most skilled or most promising prospects. In short, if your boy gets an invite, enjoy its a great experience for him, it is however not an indication of his skill level compared to other AAA players, same applies for kids not invited, it is not an indication of your skill level but rather the `luck of the draw`

Well luck of the draw has yet to leave any good hockey player "undrawn". If you are a top 6F or top 4D on a good team you will get drawn.

Fine, but the U16 application process does not require coaches to articulate that, unlike the U17 SELECTION process. BIG difference!

(9:54) you are wrong...add up how many spots at each camp. Now add up how many AAA teams in Ontario...Divide the number of spots by the number of AAA players...that gives you the number of players from each team...now some teams might get more than others but it a general idea...so a lot of kids do not make it...you just don't here them bragging they didn't make it, or they make up other excuses.

U16 is indeed a random draw of applicants, not a true selection camp. unfortunate thing is aaa getting priority, lots of very good aa players out there and its supposed to be about development. if you get in, go and enjoy it. just have fun with it.

9:54 you are totallty wrong, not to say that politicslike always might not sometimes play a role in the selection (draw) process sometimes but nor predominent. You will find that many top players will not get invited, much as many did not get invited last year. Don't try to use this camp to boost little Johnnj's ergo has being selected has nothing to do with skill, other than being a AAA player. In fact from our team last year most players selected where from the bottom half with 3 of them now playing AA and even A. This being said the camp will be a great experience for him; for those that did not get an invite, there will be the under 17 camp next year where your skills will definately play a larger role in the selection process.

it is a total money grab for sure! However, good experience for the boys.........been there done that, some kids never go..........doesn't affect their OHL draft status at all.......most coaches are not even qualified to be on the bench.........it is a money generator for the OHL.......never use to have under-16 camp until about 3 years ago when they tried a 1 day seminar style......which they realized could generate over $ 100,000/camp x kitchener, vaughn, oshawa, northern, ottawa. Do the math!! Most kids like it, but didn't rave about it...........same old......couple of scrimmages, talk on dryland which they are all aware of by now, talk on nutrition which they are all aware of by now, coaches panel session, which parents are all aware of by now. Basically it was put in place because OHL was losing kids to NCAA.......so they needed to position themselves again........this is what this is all about......but parents get crazy thinking their kid has to be there to be seen...........just not true!

Only the best are selected after the OHL and OHF have spent a tireless year scouting Bantam aged players. Then after a week long debate session led by the OHL Commissioner himself the exhaustively scouted players are ranked and selected or rejected. In fact many believe this event will make the minor midget aged draft irrelevant since so much scouting has already been done for these camps. Might actually just move to a 15 year old draft instead.

such stupid agruments with people feeling the need to justify their position. Whether a cash cow or not it is up to you ,the consumer, to decide whehter you want the product or not! People are allowed to make money by offering such a program. If it is a draw then deal with the results. I agree with comment stating why not have some fun, more experience and education about hockey and life. IF you would really rather spend your money on yourself or material goods, than your children then good for you. I would rather invest in my children. I hope my son goes but not shtting bricks about it. However, as someone with a lot of OHL contacts , enjoy the experience since this camp will not make or break your kid's MM season. If you believe different you are mistaken!

Under 16 program attendees are invited on a draw basis, not individual skills-with priority selction given to AAA players. The camp is a great experience for those kids that are selected but has absolutely no impact on your kids exposure. No need to try and stroke your kids ego with his selection, total random basis. On the other side if your kid did not get choosen, no sweat, next year (minor midget)is when the exposure starts. Last year our team had 5 kids chosen for this camp and two of these kids did not even make the team this year.

the OHF fills all the spots then waits to hear from the families if they can go and then moves on to the next group of players who are on the waiting list. So if you haven't recieved anything yet just relax. also, this camp is not for an U16 Ontario team it is just to show players what to expect so if you didn't get an invite not a big deal, there is alot of players who wont go and will still make the cut in the end. Families it doesnt mean that little Johnny is going to the NHL

Response to 7:38

Read and wheep
``The OHF/OHL Under-16 Program of Excellence has no bearing on registration or application for the Under-
17 Program of Excellence. If you participate in this program, you must still follow the necessary steps to
apply for the Under-17 Program of Excellence next year. The purpose of the Under-16 program is not to
stream/select players or identify talent and it is not designed to identify players for participation in the Under-17 program. Similarly, players will not be excluded from the Under-17 program solely based on the fact that they did not participate in the Under-16 program.`

Again, U-16 invites have no baring on skills, it`s a draw. My boy is actually a 96 and attended last year`s camp-great experience and well worth attending but watered down program due to varied skill level of participants. Actually three other boys on his team currently top 100 Central Scouting prospects did not get an invite last year. So if your kid got invited, great for him it will be a good experience,but this does not mean that he is better or even in the top half of his age group, just mean that his name was drawn. If your boy did not get invited, don`t sweat it out, its next year when the scouting begins.

Obviously`Parent`s reading and comprehension level`` was not a criteria used in selecting kids as your boy would certainly have been on the outside looking in.

Get used to it. Next year will be brutal. My son is currently a 96, rated a C and may/may not get drafted. He has had a good year, but scouting is very subjective in terms of projecting for the next level. Be prepared for disappointments, but hockey at the next level is all about overcoming obstacles and maintaining confidence.

Good luck and try to keep it low key as you and your son will get quite frustrated if you are not realistic. Just tell him to work hard, enjoy the game and whatever happens, happens.

surprising, some rational posts here. kind of nice to see for a change, considering this forum's normal tone. yes it's a random draw, and each organization gets proportional representation, so don't jump off a bridge if johnny doesn't get in. if he does, go and enjoy it, but it's not a direct path to stardom. just part of the ride.

Think what you want but the process of choosing applicants is a draw, with priority given to AAA players. This from someone who went through the exact same process last year, and who's boy attended the program. Actually if you are so concern just write them a quick memo asking them to explain the selection process. Hope your little Johnny's expectations for next year's draft are not based on attending or not attending this camp, as it is of ABSOLUTELY no consideration. Not to downplay the value of the camp as many of the talks and seminars where of great value and interest. Once all the boys get on the ice however, you realize that the skill level is not significantly different than your average AAA program, actually quite lower than some of the top programs-I will let you figure out for yourself who they are.

yes it's a draw, but essentially limited to AAA players. that's unfortunate as it's supposed to be about development, it's not a tryout camp like the U17s. Lots of good AA players out there who could benefit. they draw names from AAA players who have applied. good questions about why do they need a GPA? Or stats at all. they can build teams from what they see.

Here's a hint to see how much this camp has a bearing on being drafted - look around when you're there & count the scouts! If you can't figure out the number, I'll give you the answer now - ZERO! It's for the boys to experience what the next level could be for them, if they're interested. Relax & enjoy the pressure free weekend.

Do the math, there has to be a minimum 50 AAA teams in the province with 850 potential players. There is a total of 24 teams at the camp (The programs in Vaughan and Oshawa will consist of six teams for a total of 120 players at each program (72 forwards, 36 defencemen and 12 goaltenders). The programs in Kitchener, Sudbury, and Windsor will consist of four teams for a total of 80 players at each program (48 forwards, 24 defencemen and eight goaltenders) for 480 camp spots.

Not everyone can go unfortunately. Only about half if they all apply.

They have no clue about 97 players yet, maybe a few only. There's no 97 list. They're busy ranking and watching 96's not 97's this year. But i think this camp is a good opportunity to get a feel for the skill level out there and hopefully motivate the kids to work hard in the off season to prepare for the MM season. That's what I think this camp is all about.

I think they let in so many per area and then so many per team. They group them all together based on that and then randomly pick the allotted number.

Just finished payment for Sudbury camp, it was son's first choice. 2.5 hours of practice and 3 games, I figure it's about the same cost or cheaper than a spring tournament. When you live in the North every weekend we play in TO costs 150 fuel, 300 accomodation, 200 food, and as much as 30 fucking bucks for the fucking pocket stuffing cash grab gate fees. 425 on my MC is cheap and the experience - priceless.

I can't believe this thread. It's a draw with AAA getting priority, just like the OHF website said. If no AAAs want to go to Sudbury, then they'll fill the empty spots with AA/As. If your kid is AAA, but you only applied for Vaughan, then you might not get in. There is no spe ial list of 97s. Of course they know the so-called names of the loop, but there are no reports or lists. My kid is a 97 AAA in the G, average player, late rounder at best. Nobody knows him. But we got our first choice of three listed - Vaughan. This is strictly an exposure camp by the OHL to get these boys a taste of what the O has to offer and get them fired up. I wouldn't be surprised if one guy from central scouting was at each camp, but only to get a preliminary look. No team scouts will attend. There will be plenty of of time for that starting in Aug, and there will be significant movement among kids between then and draft day. Those who you might think are the top kids now won't all be at the top for the 97 draft. Happens every year.

So for those lucky enough to be picked, have fun. For those who didn't get picked, don't worry about it, it has no bearing on your kid's hockey future.

Who cares how they get there, my kids going and he is thrilled to be going. Is he going to the O?
Probably not, but at least he will get a taste at how playing away from home is.
Many of us forget that this is for there child, not for you. So if your child was picked and going, enjoy the weekend where ever you are, and let him have the time of his life. Theres more to life than hockey!

You are right- this about the kids and I think some parents that want the best opportunities for their children are concerned that the selection process has judged/rank their child using improper criteria and somehow limited their future. Example- Why did my AAA child not get invited and an A player did-does someone think my boy is not a good player?
I hope everyone let's the kids know that were not lucky enough to be picked that this was a lottery . They have not been ranked or judged.

You may not want to hear it, but it doesn't appear to have been a lottery. I received an e-mail asking for clarification as to which centre I was most interested in.

Sorry folks, they were eager to accomodate me, because they apparently wanted my kid to attend. He's a first line player on a top 10 team. No, I don't have illussions of NHL granduer. He's just a higher end AAA player today.

Enjoy your day if you were lucky enough to get picked in this lottery but for those who think this was based on skill it was not. this is straight from the registration package

What is the player registration process?
Players - A random lottery selection process will be used to determine which players are registered. Players will be grouped and a certain amount of players will be chosen from each group. There are parameters in place to ensure that each participating OHF Member Partner (ALLIANCE, GTHL, NOHA, OMHA) has a certain number of players participating in the program.

http://www.ohf.on.ca//web_doc/gen_pdf/2012_u16_faq_1.pdf

have fun and count yourself lucky that you are there and it only costed you $425

Agree with 9:05. I think they took in all the applications, separated out the AAAs, did a preliminary assessment to make sure they got the top few names from each loop (maybe 3-4, eg. MS from TM), and then did a lottery for the rest. And I have no problem with that.

Ya the PA is really busy doing massive due diligence. Agents and buddies of the PA build the list for the AllState. Nobody is doing intensive scouting for this thing or of the 97 age group in Bantam. Everyone is busy scouting the current 96 MM.
97s will get scouted for real starting in September.
Enjoy the event but don't go getting way out ahead of yourself.

WTF are you talking about?! Who exactly in the OHL do you think is going to be at your kid's camp? No one is scouting your kid there. It's a fucking lottery, with priority to AAA kids, just like it said on the OHF website. A few AAs might have gotten in, not because anyone thinks their special or wants to get a look at them, but because they got lucky. Seriously!? Please tell me you're kidding.

Check out the thread on the U17 SCTA(OMHA) camp. Both of these programs are by a draw of the names. Obviously, when they have AA players going to the U17 camp and top players that actually aren't going. Just let your kid enjoy it. He will have a good time.

My kid was selected and he didn't even play AAA this year. But did for the last 4 before.
I think what you people need to do is go back and download the PDF file on the app and read it again. Regardless if your kid is AAA AA A B BB C CC D DD. Yes AAA kids were considered first, but they were not waiting until hell froze over for you either. How were his grades? they also looked that too. And you can't lie about that.
Also my kid is no superstar but we had app in as soon as it became available. They just cant wait for everyone.
So if you were late getting in, chances are you won't get a spot. AAA AA A B etc etc etc

Final thought... its for my son, and not for me! So if your son didn't get the chance to go, encourage and wish his friend good luck who did, and quit whining on here.

4:30 - You are correct! It is selected and then put in random draw. Kids on waiting list will most likely get in somewhere, may be not first choice but will be offered a location. It is nothing new....a weekend of stuff they already know.....dryland tips, nutrition tips, scrimmage. It is a money generator but was initated due to the NCAA and QHL getting to kids a lot earlier and the OHL was lagging due to complaceny.
It won't affect anything for the following draft year.........some kids enjoy it, some feel it is a waste of time......all individual.

Maybe it's a good thing that there is such a wide cross-section of players. Because the players are selected randomly, there are some there that will never have another shot at this type of hockey experience. Mine probably falls into this category. He's a third-line player on a weaker AAA team. He's not among the best and he knows it but he loves playing hockey I can't explain how excited he is for this weekend. For the top players that missed out, they'll get other opportunities down line that my son won't.
