Bantam Minor or latest U14 and beyond should be about learning to win and winning. This means the coach recruits and brings in the right players for the right level, teaches the right type of hockey and system for the level and they win. If you’re not above 500 you’re in a bad situation. Now I’m sure losing coaches will protest that statement however it’s their job to fully staff a team and get them to perform. If you have a coach that makes non stop excuses and blames the players, leaguebor too strong of competition for everything, leave.
For some reason some coaches these days think it’s their job to just stand behind the bench and roll out the lines and scream.
