Our coaches kid is the most unruly kid and is always starting trouble. The coach will punish other kids with game suspension etc. but never his kid. The kid is always in the box and first on to start trouble in the locker. The wife is no bargain either(always yelling and making things uncomfortable in the stands). We want the team to stay together but want them to leave. How should we go about this? Tell him or the owner.
Neither. Take the people you like and leave en masse to a new program. If they're good players, they will welcome a package deal.
But don't assume it will be any different there.
Don't go to the higher ups. You risk them not believing you. That can lead to your kid getting cut (at worst), or a very uncomfortable rink environment for you and your kid (at best). If you succeed in getting the coach tossed, and the program does change coaches, the new coach will bring his own players, and the parents of kids who get cut will blame you.
Like the previous poster said, just leave and take the best players with you. The program will know why you left.
Agreed, just leave in mass but check out the teams you are considering going to first to ensure it's not a repeat situation.
We have the opposite problem. All our coach does is discipline his kid and its in an uncomfortable kind of way. It disrupts practice more than his kid does.
Sounds like the canadien 02 coach from lowest level kings team.
Our coach's kid slams his stick on the ice, smacks it against the goal posts, whacks it against the boards and harpoons the garbage can on the bench. Somehow Daddy doesn't notice it. I guess he has bad vision :(.
What the #%^* are you guys talking about? If your kid has an attitude on the ice or in the locker room he should be disciplined. Doesn't matter if you are the coach. Discipline your kid when he acts like an *ss or he will end up like you and everyone will hate him.
