Re: Changing demographics and hockey

I'll let you know the next (first time) I run into this issue with a German, Czech, Swedish, of Finish kid. That is not where the demographics are going and I'm not saying any of this is a bad thing. It just presents some challenges is my point. There have already been some good Asian players. The Du kid from Harvard and Yip from BU are the ones that come to mind. 10-15 years there are going to be a lot more so long as we are able to teach the game the right way.

Re: Changing demographics and hockey

I'm seeing more at the younger ages who don't pass or play defense and are absolutely uncoachable.
Anyone else dealing with this?

I see this on every team I coach from LTS to Mite to Midget to HS in all demographics and nationalities ? Nothing new...
