Just look at every Olympic Athletete ever...they practiced 2-3 hours a week and take 6 months off from their sport each year and became the best in the world. Oh wait no they worked their asses off every day. Your bender, that isn’t athletic enough, should take lots of time off. If your kid loves it, is smart, athletic and wants to play at the next level, then push them. The ones that make the NHL and stay are the ones that wanted it bad enough that they couldn’t be burned out, that’s what separates them from others. Not pushing takes away from the opportunities they have to improve.
Been a D1 program for 20 seasons. 6 NCAA tourney appearances and now 2 frozen fours. What are you talking about? There's not a D1 program out there that's easy to make.
