True talent doesn't get "held back" by the performance (or non-performance) of others.
If you're using this as an excuse you haven't come to the realization your kid isn't as good as you think he is.
Hey buddy, two years from now when your kid decides he doesn't want to play anymore because dad is overbearing are you still going to come on and post?
You are clearly the parent of an 06, 05 or 04 and this is your first kid. You will learn young Luke Skywalker.
I don't understand why this thread has created all this emotion? I would guess it is better for the boys to be in the right situation. If they struggle, then they should be in a better place to succeed? Even if it means they get cut. I understand Frustrated and his/her position. just saying...
parents suck and they ruin it for the kids. whether they are benders or all-stars, does not matter, they all suck!
especially if the kid is a bender because they are aware that everybody is talking about them behind there back when the kid does not belong on the ice...
I agree that the parents ruin the experience for the kids. Bender or not, this is youth hockey and it should be fun for the kids.
Saw a bunch of benders down in Springfield this past weekend. These kids are not "elite"!
Bunch of benders got lit up by a BHL team...frustrated
Just curious, how does an ehf elite team get smacked around by a tier 2 bhl team?
Youth hockey is about development of elite talent, not getting a ribbon for particiption. Its ok, you dont belong! Go play soccer with the town kids meatlick...
What do you do if 95% of a team is out of place and has teenagers upstairs assuring you that it will get better despite them having no experience?
