New guy on my sons team this year. All he talks about is how he played D1 hockey. I finally had enough and started asking him about members of that team. All I got was yeah,yeah I know him. I started making up names and he would reply the same. Long story short he never even played college hockey at all. Why do these clueless parents keep saying they played D1 hockey when they were not even close. It makes you look like a moron and does nothing to help your kid. Who has parents like this on their team?
No. Too many people in MA would find someone like that out very easily.
Why is it so difficult for you people to figure out if a coach is a real hockey player or not. All you have to do it watch them skate for 5 seconds and it obvious who’s a poser and who can play. mystery solved.
Guy in my kids program showed up to Mite Development wearing Northeastern everything. Asked him if he was friendly with a few guys I knew on the team. Proceeded to tell me he was a team manager and played club hockey. Yes, they’re out there.
Just sounds like he was more accomplished at hockey than you were. Sounds like you lived vicariously through your friends careers and he played college club hockey. ACHA is pretty good. Most parents on this board would sign up for their kids to play on the Northeastern club team. Nor did this guy lie about anything. I bet he was responsible for your kid getting cut and you are still mad about that.
Nope. He 100% said he “played at NU” until he got outed.
Please check everyone’s credentials on eliteprospects.com Much more detailed than hockeydb and no one can hide there.
Yeah. We got one. First thing out of his mouth.
You think the parents are bad, you should check out some of the coaches.
Coaches should be vetted by the organization prior to assigning them to a team. They have a direct impact on your players. Background checks and qualifications verification are required for all youth sports. As for parents, who cares what the say, they have no impact on your childs development.
There is a database for all you gullible *****s to look up and find your guy. You love the internet so u already know.
No but our town league has the know it all coach who watches everyone's kid on LiveBarn and sends them critiques and Karens everyone with his knowledge. Who by the way, never played big boy hockey but learned to play and coach from YouTube. Asshats are everywhere.
