Dad/mom kissing coaches ass is in the "Coach" category. Always the one hanging around after practice to talk to the coach about their kids development, asking coach why the assistant coaches kids get the most icetime and talk about the hockey rankings. On the rare occasion they do offer up some juicy gossip about other teams, and maybe bring some nice after practice treats for the team, but in the end they become a headache for the coach.
I'm that rarest of all hockey parents. The 1% of the 1% have you. A parent who's kid is actually good at hockey.
I saw the kid actually skate backwards and lift a puck.. Very very impressed.
His Dad is the coach so he knows.
i think I'm the love child of the wolf and the phantom.
he was impressive at 7 but that was many years ago... He's now playing on one of the top u14 teams in the state with a generous scholarship to a top ISL.
What about the parent who buys whatever they hear other parents / kids talking about? New sticks, equipment whatever.... Have one of those on the team my son plays for, total poser.
