But

But the counter is 11-12 yo elite figure skaters are on the ice 10-15 hours a week (raiding one). Why can’t our boy get 7-9 hours
of ice time per week if he’s enjoying it and still playing other sports, xbox and hanging with friends.

Re: But

No one is saying you can’t. Almost everyone is saying you shouldn’t.

Sure, your kid could be the outlier that makes the olympics, but it is much more likely that they will be in the group that suffers long term physical problems.

Re: But

plenty of other sports practice that many hours. And not talking about olympic level. Why is hockey different.
