What are parents supposed to do if their isn't a consistent assistant coach at games? Sometimes 1 assistant, sometimes 3?
Watch the game, thank whoever helped out, ask jr if he had fun and then go out for lunch.... the number of assistant coaches should not change a thing. Worried about the number of assistant coaches? Seriously?
Do your homework and find a better situation for next season. This season, just keep quiet, make nice with everyone and enjoy it as best you can. It is strange to me that, on the whole, we parents spend more time researching the purchase of a $1,000 washing machine than we do the teams we put our kids on.
A couple of really good posts on this thread. Nice work fellas.
must be all town hockey parents on this thread. to much common sense!
You sir haven't got a clue. I bet you micromanage your entire family too.
Coach is always right.
Now that their is a way to track IP address its funny that a few of theses guys play on the same team in CT.
Actually your ignorance to the fact that most coaches would take those opportunities to get his or her players learning to pay attention the ENTIRE game, even when on the bench, and you when coach says "change it up", they actually, you know, hop over those boards and go on for their shift while the others are coming off. It's not rocket science. It's not difficult. You don't "Need" an adult to open a freaking door. Kids as young as squirts can do that. Parents like you raising kids like this who cant do a **** thing for themselves is actually what is wrong with this world right now. Hockey isn't about JUST playing and teaching the game of hockey, there is a life lesson in every single sheet of ice. No one should be afraid or concerned because their child has had the opportunity to learn a new aspect of the game they are playing.
