Re: Too much ice?

When the kid does not want to go he is getting too much ice..... as you get to that age some kids love the game and others like to play most of the time... this is the beginning of them transitioning out of the game in most cases. A good test is to offer your child a chance to miss hockey or any other activity from time to time for not reason... Just tell them they don't have to go to practice a few times.... it might start to tell you if they are playing for the love of the game or for you.... you could always just ask them but they may be too afraid to let you down.... at least 30% of my sons team are kids that are playing because it is expected of them...
