I am sure you will say, "He loves it and wants to do it", but the reality is that kids don't know when is too much. Keep going down that path and the kid will eventually have repetitive motion injury and will probably lose his desire to compete. By the end of the season when the child hits a plateau and the other kids love for the game boosts them through the year you will be questioning your decision. Unfortunately, it will be too late by then.
This is insane and exactly what is wrong with youth hockey culture. The fear of missing out is out of control with this sport.
I agree. It's usually the parents who didn't play hockey that have FOMO.
If he's not in the driveway stickhandling and shooting without being prompted then he's on the ice too much.
