You know you're a daddy coach when you don't know the difference between your and you're.
...when you're willing to give up roughly 7 months of your time for little compensation, have no free weekends, listen to ******** from uneducated parents, do countless hours of work for the team away from the rink, have consistent communication to the other parents, not getting paid back in full or chasing money you put up for tournaments, having out of pocket expenses for USA Hockey coaching levels, doing 6 hour online coaching courses and safety training, taking a full weekend day every year for seminars, getting blamed for losses, coaching difficult kids, knowing idiot parents talk behind your back and smile to your face, and reading posts on an internet discussion board from people that have nothing better to do on a beautiful Thursday morning than post anonymous comments to start trouble who don't have the intelligence, ability, experience, or balls to coach themselves.
Coach, I'll drink one for you tonight.
Then don't play for us!! Very simple. We don't force you to sign the contract. Anyone that comes on here and bitcchhes has a kid on the bottom of the team , and changes teams every year. Ya we get a discount we deserve it for dealing with people like them
maybe the people picking the coaches should be held accountable. I only played through high school and I give coaching 100 percent. I plan every practice and send out the practice plan to my assistants by mid morning the day of practice. I also go over the practice plan with the coaches and players in the locker room before practice. And all I ask of the parents is to give me the last 5 minutes of a game. Meaning I will play whoever I want during this time. And its not the best kids every time. In a close game if a kid has been working really hard in practice and during the game then he gets to play at the end of a tight game. If my star players are dogging it or skipping practice or not paying attention then they are sitting at the end of the game.
I coach to develop the kids as much as I possibly can and not to win games. I do not care what parents think of this approach. If the organization does not want me to coach anymore I am fine with that as well. I was picked for a job and I do it to the best of my ability. There are always better and worse options out there. If your kid has a bad coach then its on the organization. Maybe the coach just needs some direction to become better. Playing D1 hockey does not necessarily make you the best coach. It doesn't hurt but its not the be all end all that some people make it out to be.
Every coach should plan and be prepared. I am not claiming anything. I do not pump gas but what is wrong with that job. Your going to rank people on their professions as well as how good their kids are at hockey. Your a good ****. Hope your kids turn out ok despite you.
Any Daddy coach posting on this board is a bottom 8th of rankings coach. Their kid is bottom 3rd with low hockey IQ but they throw him out on the ice as much as possible with those blinders on. Funny when other parents just can't pretend it's not happening anymore, jaws dropped looking at one another..... did you just see what little Johnny did.....again......
Here is what it comes down to... 1. how good is the coach day to day on ice 2. Do the kids respond to him and learn from him 3. How well does he communicate... at that point you have to balance that with his child and how good of a fit he is on team... it all falls out of balance if the coach favors his kid way too much and even more so when the child clearly can't keep up.... in the and if the guy is a good coach and his son gets along and can play nobody complains.... when the guy favors his child or his kid can't play, eventually he will stop communicating as the unspoken "secret" is obvious and it becomes impossible to have honest conversations, communication falls apart, all the inmates begin to run the asylum and March cant come fast enough.... and it starts all over again till implosion takes place.
I'm 5'4" and a daddy coach. Can't wait until I can suit up next year with the kids on the team. I'll get to relive my bantam glory years. Wooooo!
You guys poo-pooing the time and effort put in by volunteer coaches have clearly never given a minute of your own time. I guess you would rather just pay and watch. You should try putting yourself out there some time, because there are way too many like you and not enough of the guys that will put in the time and effort. They may favor their own kid, but you have to recognize the time they are putting into other (unappreciative) people's kids as well.
When your kid single handedly loses the game and you shift the blame to others...... also known as the "DCFS or Daddy Coach Flipping Syndrome. When suffering from DCFS the coach will mentally justify in his / her mind the over usage of their child in sporting event with statements like "he's been busting his hump in practice or all the coaches feel he should be on the PP". Effects similar to those of person hallucinating due to dihydration where individual sees things that are not actually there for example fruits or bottled water.
If childs Power Play results are in the negative (where they actually give up goals), they have a negative +/- and or child is on the ice to win a game and again has a negative impact on the final outcome, Daddy Coach should seek professional help immediately and consider stepping down while receiving treatment.
Does USA hockey cover the treatment?
When you give the reward after the game to the coach's ids consistently!
So your 9 year old sat and watched his own hockey game being played and you are good?
What team does he play for?
Where will you bring him next year?
That’s how you maximize your kids exposure because you have to play for CJR Brick instead of BJB Brick!
And of course winning is the most important thing to squirt daddy coaches!
When you kids gets put on the 3rd line even though he should start or be on the 2nd line, when your kid never gets game puck even when he deserves it and when you give the $$ back the organization takes off your tuition to give to a player who needs it.!!
Hmm I guess there are a few good daddy coaches out there!!!
