Off to rocky start? They have been able to compete with these teams in the past....
does 0-2 sound better than 1-5-1 to you or did you forget the preseason tournament where you went 1-3-1???
These 8 & 9 year olds don't stand a chance! They will never be the elitest of the elite!
Its usually not the kids that others are hoping lose games, it is more about the parents. There is something enjoyable about watching parents that are 'better than' have to experience 5 loses in a week. Not going to be too many smiling faces this season!
THE KINGDOM HAS FALLEN.
Youre right, after the 2 convincing wins this weekend everyone will feel much better....
At what point do you concede that Jr Dogs are place to be South of Boston.
KINGDOM HAS FALLEN!
7th place after week 4 ugh. Size and speed catch up to you pretty fast.... Guess your finding out the hard way. Don't worry your on the same path as most of the SSK teams. It's contagious over there. Hey at least the have a good snack bar!
How did the Columbus Day tourney work out for ya?
It's more about making sure kids are playing at the right level. If teams are getting blown out every game then it's probably time for a new approach as repeated blowouts are not good for a team / player morale. The Kings program has definitely suffered in that respect at multiple levels. Parents often become defensive due to the badge wearing and the "my kids select" mentality when the correct thought should be "is my child playing at the right level" or "are the repeated blowouts mentally healthy"? After all it's 9 year old hockey, it's about having fun, fostering life long relationships, growing and maturing as an individual. Ask yourself.... Are you here for yourself or your child and be honest.
What you just described is certainly not the Kings organization. Win at all cost baby!
