Family Advising


MAP Advisors consist of former NCAA Div. I, Div. III coaches, as well as former USHL, NAHL, WHL general managers, coaches, and scouts. We have fostered trusted working and personal relationships from Midget AAA to NCAA Div. 1 throughout North America. We are people that the next-level coaches depend on to provide opportunities for their teams and our families.

We perform our responsibilities with integrity and complete transparency. What differentiates us from most consultants/advisors is that we are former coaches in the driver’s seat to decision-making. We have worked closely on-ice and in the weight rooms with the athletes who have gone before you and know and understand the nuances of the hockey landscape at the next level.

Our staff and resources at MAP Advisors is simply unmatched. We are composed of experienced consultants and mentors with over 105+ years of working professionally in hockey with established relationships across North America.  MAP Advisors was created to provide specialized advising and development to players and families to help them navigate the various hockey and education options. At the same time, saving families countless hours and expenses.
