it's far more likely a parent from your own team is going to call you on it and run to the AD

nailed it, one only has to read the kiddie board to know how true this is.


Hockey parent motto: "If I can screw your kid it will make mine better"

That should be put at the top of the "Hockey Parent's Gospel" or things not to do list.

Re: Can you play high school and u18 or Jr team?

A prior poster mentions "making varsity." For a U18 player, that likely isn't an accomplishment. I have to think if a kid is thinking about playing for a full season U18 or Junior team, their HS team is not strong. We aren't talking U14 here.

If a parent wants to narc on a kid that is trying to help them to be better, it only hurts the team. Sitting out HS games and practices is putting the kid back in the same position they would be if they hadn't played - playing solely for their likely better U18/Junior full season team.
