An advisor is entrusted to give a young player and their family advice and mentorship while the player continues to develop. Our program preaches honesty, integrity, professionalism, but most importantly balance. Many young players will not be able to play at the pro level. It is imperative that they have secondary life goals, while pursuing their dream.
Many large agencies sign numerous players under the notion of “advising” to keep in line with NCAA rules, but do not provide any type of advising service. They couple this with false-promises and hype, which can often excite a player and their family, while providing no actual service unless the player becomes a highly touted NHL prospect.
At Quest, we are very selective as to which young players fit into our advising program. We not only look for the right characteristics in the player, but the parents as well. We form long-term, loyal relationships with our players, and their families, which in turn, make the relationships we form far more rewarding.
