You've raised a number of points regarding the positive life experience this opportunity fosters. Good for you in so doing!

Clarification: based on my personal situation, I feel that there has indeed existed a material change in circumstances, justifying why my son is no longer a "child of the marriage", and no longer entitled to child support.

Notes:
assuming next, court ordered/FRO enforced Child Support is a non-issue:
1. there is every intention to provide support (financial/guidance) towards my (soon 19 yrs. old) son's Jr. hockey initiative and (especially) post-secondary education;

2. I desire to pursue ^1. on MY terms. (that's the essence of my issue, and likely many others in a similar situation to mine)

3. there is a consistent (court identified) pattern of behaviour by the other parent (yes contempt finding;(; of actions taken which are contrary to court orders, spirit of court endorsements, and regrettably harmful to the children.
Totally fair enough and I don't your history or story, only been on this forum ~a year. Glad to hear you would support him in whatever manner that is.

And the step dad interfering is just his opinion here. No one else, only the GM and/or coach of a team can say if he's good enough or not. Step dads opinion does not matter one little bit..

I wish you, and your child all the luck. And I really do hope he gets to play on a Junior A team. It will something he will always look back on with much happiness. There wont be any regrets.

Also if you have any questions about my experience as a billet mom please feel free to send me a PM.

This forum possesses a wealth of information. Though patience and perseverance are required; sharing information in "one's time of need", is a true strength of this tool!

Aside: my daughter's previous bf is a hockey goalie, whom spent last season playing for a team in Wyoming, USA: and billeted with the coaches' family.
Thanks to billet families (like yours), a diverse/next level hockey experience may be realized by kids!

Sorry to say but, very few of these opportunities exist. Its a myth really. Its a 1% or something of players that get full ride.

Partial rides in the US are more common and still cost like 25-30k CND a year to cover.

I know... Trust me.
