teams are all different.... our team has several moms that think they should be NHL coaches yet have never played and yell shoot, two hands on the stick and every other useless piece of advice every 5 sec.... I head to the glass or other side of rink to enjoy the game. I try from time to time to join the nonsense for entertainment value but last only a few min before I cant stand it......
I find it is easier on my back to stand rather than sit in the bleachers.
Depends on the rink, stands at HT suck, can't see a ton of the play. I love sitting with some of the parents on the team and watching the games, other days I like to stand at ice level and watch games. Who would care really?
