Parents like you are what ruins it for your kids. Don't be like this guy. Here is what you can expect to hear in the future "Whats your name? Sorry, we don't have any spots available this year"

Re: Clinic Idea -

A clinic to teach special teams.... I have heard it all now !

If your kid is pee wee age or older and your coach is not dedicating 1 entire practice a week to PK and PP then you you are overpaying for your hockey !

Let them have thier skills night, one practice for small area games or battles and transitioning the stuff they learned in skills to game type situations and then one practice primarily for PK and PP scenarios.

sprinkle in some specific skill type stuff, like rebounds, tips drills, collecting passes off the boards or in open ice and then some shooting drills for players and goalies.

and a good coach should be able to combine about five of those things listed above in 1 drill and teach the fundamentals of forwards and Defense at the same time.

Are you a coach who played or just a Dad who pays for hockey and thinks hes an expert because he has watched his little player and the Bruins?

coach who has played, and a "daddy coach" on top of that ! Imagine that ? It is not rocket science if you were coached correctly growing up, understand age specific needs of your kids, recognize deficiencies in games and then work on those things and are organized.

I do not show up at the rink and step on the ice and wing it, lots of planning goes into our practice plans from the start of the season to each practice, as that there is progression of difficulty that coincides with the progression of skill.

Like this guy says, put in a little effort and you'll see the benefits. Previous poster, why so bitter? Pick a better team and coach next year if what he says is foreign to you.

Seemingly there is a specialized clinic for almost every basic skill in hockey - skating, stick handling, shooting.... But what I have observed is the benefits of being able to play special teams post middle school hockey. Often these are the players who get the meaningful ice in high school. Why not a specific camp for special teams? 5-on-4 play, 5-on-3 play and limit it to 18-20 kids so you have two sets.

Problem is, most parents are stupid and would not see the value in this.

I think your spell check corrected that - think you meant to say most parents are stupid and don't know they should expect the team to work on these without needing to pay extra for a clinic.
