Re: Any MA/Southern NH Programs Without Parents Coaching?

Where would all these players come form if hockey players didn't have kids ?

Chicken and Egg dilemma ! Kids are playing because their dads played, and dads are coaching because thier kids play.

Try to find the good daddy coach that knows what he is doing and does not have an ulterior motive, like coaching just to help his son.


On a side note, as as been discussed here. One of best coaches has been a dad who didn't even play high school hockey, other was a high school player and no more. Worst one yet, was a former pro with no kids on the team, because he didn't care about the team...because he didn't have a kid on the team

Re: Any MA/Southern NH Programs Without Parents Coaching?

Good luck to any program who can find people to make the commitment of being a full time Hockey coach on any team that is not a parent . Parent Coaches are usually paid by given a half tuition contract which is around $1500 to $2000 depending on team . That money isn't worth all the time and effort that goes into being at the rink 5 times a week at least nor is it worth driving all around the universe . Yes , your going to get college kids in the beginning ,people that want to help out with kids or maybe even find that 1 person who truly wants to help kids for the sake of it again in the beginning but.......... the reality is I don't see anyone making that commitment 3-5 times every week for for 1500 to 2000 dollars without somewhat of a stake in the team such as a son / daughter or relative Won't happen!!!! These teams that are going to no daddy coaches need to realize the money that they're going to be given up is way more then what a daddy coach gets for his time and effort . Who knows maybe I'm wrong and and these coaches will be paid 10k or more because that's the only way I see that working more than a year .

If true, that's a great idea.


There are a few good "daddy coaches" from mite to Bantam - but they are FAR AND FEW. And I mean single digits.

Most just concerned and focused on their own player, who wouldn't be a starter for any other team.
