Re: Youth Hockey Has Jumped the Shark Pit

What if they just like to play hockey and eat pizza and ice cream? What if they have no dream beyond hanging out with their friends. The kids are fine and they should play whenever and wherever they want to play. If they want to play all year I say let them as they may never want to play again. Dboard shaming an entire generation of players is ignorant. Let kids be kids and let them play on. Parents on the other hand probably should take a 4-5 month break from hockey.

That's because they aren't doing the right things off ice. Parents don't understand that hockey training doesn't only involve having skates on. Kids don't want to do the work, they want instant gratification.

True for any sport. You have to do exercises that balance out the stresses of the sport.
