Re: Do they know?

Anon
Good point! As a coach you have an obligation to develop all players. Do your job, do it every practice and every game and stop the complaining!
Spoken like a true idiot parent. You think i am going waste my time developing your kid to go play elsewhere next year. Get a clue. I will do whats best for my team currently and going forward. If you are not part of the going forward then expect to play when i need you to and thats it. At practice he will run the same drills but i will not spend another minute helping that kid because i can then focus more on the rest that are staying and make sure they get better.

What about the kids that you will cut that will not be with you next year?

Coach, maybe if you didn't spend most of the year only caring about the star player and the coaches kids then people wouldn't look elsewhere. P.S. Keep your kid out of the box, all coaches kids get the most penalties.

another fool chirping in. Only losing 2 kids and its because one is moving and the other just cant cut it. Staying with the organization and dropping down a team. Keeping the rest and developing winners. so thanks but dont project onto me. You have enough issues already.

Re: Do they know?

I wonder if you're the same TOOL of a coach who berated a 9 year old kid on the ice a few years back, calling him a traitor for leaving, telling him he was a waste of his time, etc. to the point where the kid was in tears. Of course you didn't bother to find out why the kid was leaving, only later did you learn that dad had to close down his business, mom had to take on more hours at work and they couldn't commit to driving 50 minutes each way to the rink since they didn't know what next year would bring so they went to the program 15 minutes from home. Instead you let your bruised ego get in the way and then wondered why he, along with 10 other kids left your team at the end of the season.

Families leave programs for all sorts of reasons, sometimes you are the cause of it and other times it's things out of your control. Whatever the reason, it's never okay to take it out on the player, to stop coaching him, sit him or in anyway punish him. Your problem is with the parents, grow a set and talk to them.

nope not that guy. I dont care if your bender leaves. Thats a choice the family needs to make and if you want to go somewhere else then do so. All i am saying that if you do, dont expect any more commitment out of me or my coaching staff for the rest of the season. Obviously there are extenuating circumstances, like the example above, and if a parent came to me and had to explain this then i obviously would do what i can to help. The problem is most parents dont know how to communicate. more often than no you fools think you know more than the coaches and owners and all the time we laugh at you.

So pretty much you pick and choose your commitment coach, huh. The player made your team this year, the parents overpaid for the product(we all do) and you the tool coach won't finish up your obligation for this year to the player who might go somewhere else next year. You sir are right in order with the youth hockey problem, the owners suck, most of the coaches suck and the parents really suck.

Thanks for the clarification "Claude Julien"...you're a total DBag with your rationale...how much "Coaching" can a "Hockey Dad" provide to a 9 year old kid that he will retain anyways. His hockey future is bleak without your "Coaching"..Get over yourself...its 9 year old hockey you moron. Coaching mentality like you spew is what we need to get rid of at this age. You must be a great role model for all your kids....Idiot!!

The Daddy coaches get more and more crazy around the peewee / bantam level bc they finally realize their kid can't hack it on the team and won't make a team that Daddy isn't coaching. It's too bad for the kids bc they would develop more if they played at their correct level (tier 1 / town) and were not coached by Daddy. Daddy coaches - take a step back and breath it all in, let your child play town and encourage them as a player, the will develop and have fun! Which at the end of the day is what it is all about.

yes i love the "daddy Coaches" comments. Who else will teach your bender how to play. You parents do a wonderful job of dropping off, picking up , cutting checks and criticizing coaches. To bad you are all losers who cant skate to give your bender the same treatment. Criticize all you want. Fact is my kid is playing for free while playing on the power play, penalty kill and the last 2 minutes of the close games and because of that he will get more exposure than yours. When it does come college time he will have more experience and more connections to get him to the school of his choice whether he plays d1 or d3 or club. And all this while I only have to pay for gear (which i get great discounts) and hotels during his entire youth hockey experience. Seems Like the "daddy" Coaches know a little more than the parents.

I wonder if you\\\\\\\'re the same TOOL of a coach who berated a 9 year old kid on the ice a few years back, calling him a traitor for leaving, telling him he was a waste of his time, etc. to the point where the kid was in tears. Of course you didn\\\\\\\'t bother to find out why the kid was leaving, only later did you learn that dad had to close down his business, mom had to take on more hours at work and they couldn\\\\\\\'t commit to driving 50 minutes each way to the rink since they didn\\\\\\\'t know what next year would bring so they went to the program 15 minutes from home. Instead you let your bruised ego get in the way and then wondered why he, along with 10 other kids left your team at the end of the season.

Families leave programs for all sorts of reasons, sometimes you are the cause of it and other times it\\\\\\\'s things out of your control. Whatever the reason, it\\\\\\\'s never okay to take it out on the player, to stop coaching him, sit him or in anyway punish him. Your problem is with the parents, grow a set and talk to them.
nope not that guy. I dont care if your bender leaves. Thats a choice the family needs to make and if you want to go somewhere else then do so. All i am saying that if you do, dont expect any more commitment out of me or my coaching staff for the rest of the season. Obviously there are extenuating circumstances, like the example above, and if a parent came to me and had to explain this then i obviously would do what i can to help. The problem is most parents dont know how to communicate. more often than no you fools think you know more than the coaches and owners and all the time we laugh at you.
The Daddy coaches get more and more crazy around the peewee / bantam level bc they finally realize their kid can\'t hack it on the team and won\'t make a team that Daddy isn\'t coaching. It\'s too bad for the kids bc they would develop more if they played at their correct level (tier 1 / town) and were not coached by Daddy. Daddy coaches - take a step back and breath it all in, let your child play town and encourage them as a player, the will develop and have fun! Which at the end of the day is what it is all about.
yes i love the "daddy Coaches" comments. Who else will teach your bender how to play. You parents do a wonderful job of dropping off, picking up , cutting checks and criticizing coaches. To bad you are all losers who cant skate to give your bender the same treatment. Criticize all you want. Fact is my kid is playing for free while playing on the power play, penalty kill and the last 2 minutes of the close games and because of that he will get more exposure than yours. When it does come college time he will have more experience and more connections to get him to the school of his choice whether he plays d1 or d3 or club. And all this while I only have to pay for gear (which i get great discounts) and hotels during his entire youth hockey experience. Seems Like the "daddy" Coaches know a little more than the parents.
You're a Jacka**...only reason your kid is on a team is because of daddy coaching...doing the kid a great service...Probably playing for a town team anyways...wait until the hitting starts and then your bender comes to you saying he just wants to be on the swim team...and Id be willing to bet he isnt going to D1 or even D3...cant hide his lack of talent once he reaches U14...just because he is on the "Powerplay" and on the ice last 2 minutes doesnt mean he is anything special other than a pylon...typical daddy coach...bender first...team second...great teachable moment...glad you dont coach my kid...Moron!!

I'll second that! The little angry Daddy coach sounds like he didn't get enough titmilk as a kid and his little Johnny is going to turn out the same way, poor child. It's not about flexing your muscle and showcasing your power for all to see (thats a little mans game) Work on developing each player, that's the best way to help your own kid.

Re: Do they know?

They know. They know everything.

If the child is an above average player on a team and goes to practice somewhere else in January, the coach will know by the close of business the following day. More likely he will receive a text while the kid is on the ice.

Someone is always watching.

Re: Do they know?

The coach knew your intentions when you skipped the team outings, couldn't make the extra fun skates the rest of kids went to, when you stay in the corner of the lobby with the other disgruntled:disappointed: family after games and practices and most of all when you didn't buy him a frosty beverage at the tournament...he is fine with it and you made his life easier.

Well Congrats! Good luck to your little bender when he's a fourth liner at Bunker Hill CC, where he'll major in Janitorial Sciences. But hey... you're only paying for discounted equipment anyway, am I right?

Maybe the reason the guy had to shut down his business is because the family spent 2 hours a day getting their kid to youth hockey practice. Some people set themselves and their kids up to fail. Not saying the kid deserved to be ridiculed, but shouldn't a parent have the sense not to put their kid into a situation that is bound to turn out poorly?

Re: Do they know?

So to recap, yes the coach knows, he probably his panties in a bunch for your families lack of commitment since you clearly don't understand hockey and is punishing your kid.

\\\"Render the contract void\\\". Its youth hockey. Get a life. I don\\\'t know what\\\'s worse you writing that or me responding.
Ummmm, it happens all the time, Jethro. EHF says rules were broken, contract is void, team has no recourse, parents have even LESS recourse.

Because, after all, it\'s youth hockey. Meaning, the league and teams have all the clout.
Yeah, the contract is void and then you sign another one on February 1 when it's legal (or after tryouts if Fed to Fed).
No, the scenario is, the kid skated with another team in violation of the rules, the team that violated the rules isn't allowed to sign him.

Each birth year has a committee. It's within their right to enforce the rule, if they choose to.

Re: Do they know?

I know its a small fish in a big pond but I wonder what the MA Attorney general would think of this. Sounds like there could be some colluding and limiting of completion within leagues. This would be against the law. Kids cannot sign contracts and I honestly wonder how legal it is for parents to sign them for their kids as well. (I am not an attorney so I do not know but I am guessing its prob legal) but it just sounds pretty awful that teams. leagues and coaches are doing this all in the name of profit. They are children.

Maura Healy is actually a friend of my family. I will ask her about this next time I see her and post an update.

Thanks

The bigger concern for the AG would be holding tryouts where no spots are available. HUGE $$$ involved. And then the teams don't even have the decency to let the kid's parents know, either way. I can't tell you how many times I've had to answer "Did we hear from the XXX yet?" from my 8/9/10/11 year old kid. with "Not yet." And it doesn't matter that I say I don't think he should count on it. When you're a kid, you believe!

Re: Do they know?

Yes! Shame on the dirt ball coaches and programs who hold tryouts knowing that their team is full!!! Please ask the AG about this and let me the board know.

"the contract has been inked" - what a dbag

Re: Do they know?

Coach has a subscription to LiveBarn. He checks out other teams practices. Does not take a rocket scientist to determine if one of his players is on the ice. He knows each players skating style. If you are going to skate at another team’s practice make sure the rink does not have LiveBarn.

Yeah, a coach making a few grand a year is spending all his time scouring hours of Live Barn footage at 10 rinks at all evenings hours looking for his players practicing with other teams.

If he had that much time to waste he would post on the D Board.

not spending hours just a few minutes. When i hear about kids skating elsewhere i check it out and see if its true. No point in wondering or listening to rumors. Confirm it or not and move on. Pretty simple actually.
