A very good coach once said “You can’t be afraid to lose. Playing against more advanced teams helps us develop. Isn’t that the goal?”
Squirt Minor team goes to Nashville. Fams and kids have a blast. They play really good teams and have a great experience. Now some short nob dad takes jabs at them. The hockey world is full of losers and the OP leads the way.
It was more a jab at the coach for wasting the parents time taking them down there to get embarrassed at a steep price. The parents I spoke with weren’t talking about memories made or the like. They were estimating how much was drank when he thought it was a good idea to put them in this tournament. I get it. I would be mad too. They think this team is the bruins. Next time stay local and try the Framingham Thanksgiving squirt invitational. They have a shot at the semis.
OP is trash. Definitely type of parent who thinks he knows more than every coach his/her kid has ever played for.
Imagine dropping a fortune to go to Nashville and the kids get banged up (not their fault) now you got this clown rubbing it in.
Nothing to rub in. It’s ok to lose against good teams. Also ok to go to Nashville and play good teams.
