Re: Well you want the truth?

This board has low brain cell amount. He was joking.
I’m pretty sure he’s talking about an 08 who plays for PHC , NorthStars , NH Cyclones and Mass Avalanche. And documents it daily on Instagram.

Or he was just being a sarcastic ass.

Stop letting your player play for 2 teams during the season. It’s a waste of energy.

Parents who let their kid play for 3 should just be shot.

But 4 lol. 4 teams? Hahaha why? Why? I need an answer? 2 full time and 2 as an alternate. Hahaha why?? How did you think 4 teams was a good idea?
We have a few kids playing town and club. Those kids come to club games and cant adjust to the level of play. Already tried telling the parents they are doing their kids a disservice. They dont agree. Go figure!

Re: Well you want the truth?

Had a kid with us as pre-mites playing up full ice mites. Best kid in the league if not best top 3 easy. Parents insisted on playing town and EHF Elite. Kid was literally 6 going 5 practices/week and 4 games/weekend.
First year squirts, kid was still very good but not the best player on the team. Was a bit lazy in games, did not work very hard in practice.
Advised the parents that 2 practices/week at 100% effort and attention is better than 10 practices at 50%. To no avail. They really enjoyed getting a cup of coffee in the center of town and having every one talk about how many goals the kid scored in their town game.
Second year pee wees, the kid is now top 6 on the team. Then skips a game to play in a State Play down game for his town. Get's cut as a result.
Goes to new organization and is a 3rd liner.
Bantam Major, out of the league. Maybe playing JV hockey at best.

Lesson folks: Less is more. If your kid is playing on two teams because "he loves it", ask yourself if he is getting better at 2x the rate of everyone else around him.

That is the word of the lord.

Why are you stalking this kid

Re: Well you want the truth?

The thing is, many years ago growing up in MN we played a lot of hockey. We played 7 days a week, 5-6 hours a day, late October to late March, rarely indoors. There was no pressure, position play was pretty lose, defensemen could rush the puck, forwards had to get back to defend and goalies saw a lot of pucks.

And no one burned out. It might not be quantity. It might be something else like car rides with the hockey dad or the coach who thinks he will soon be called-up to the USHL.
