Why do parents put their children on teams then don't commit? When you join a team or put your son or daughter on a team why don't you show up? Most can't drive themselves. Practice , skills , off ice training and games are all part of your tuition. But there are parents out there that don't bring them to practice , skills , off ice training and yes games. But yet you ***** and complain when your player and team doesn't succeed. You parents blame coaches , organization, players and other parents it's you. My question is why join a team If you are not going to commit yourself? You are not teaching your player how to be a teammate / player. You parents can't even call the coach if you aren't going to be there. If you don't want to travel don't join. Dont ask someone else to bring your child he or she wants you to watch them that's why they play. Then if your player gets benched you freak out. People you are the problem get a grip show up for practice, skills , off ice training and yes games. You might be amazed how much you player love the game and team.
Why would you get frustrated by A) other people, and B) other people's kids? Let them make their decisions, you make yours. It means more attention in practice and more PT for your kid, and chances are they kid will eventually drop the sport anyway - 75% of them do.
The overwhelming majority of families with kids that play at the elite level DO bring their kid to practice and games - including driving or flying significant distances. So, what does that tell us about your kid's team?
And if you're sitting with someone at a game that is complaining - without justification in your opinion - about their kid being benched....move!
No, go back to making breakfast for your family.
I think, the more important issue with families that do not commit to the fullest level to the team their child is on is the fact that they take a spot from a kid who wants to commit and be on the team and can actually help to make a team better.
Actually, its none of anyones business why someone shows up or dosent. It should be between coach and parent, anyone else is just being nosy. Everyone has demons.
I mean this with all sincerity. Please seek some counseling. You seem frightening close to the edge of the abyss.
don't come to practice u don't play as much plain and simple
She said the parents ***** when the kid doesn't play. Fringe players, on a low level team, either playing on two teams or playing another sport. Not difference makers.
