Here lies the problem, does anyone here ask their super star if they want to play? Go to practice tonight? Attend a skill session, camp, game? Shoot pucks, workout?
99 percent of the lugnuts on this sight kidnap and hold hostage their super stars life until, oops, they have no life! And then eventually, no hockey!
If you're not giving your kid an opportunity to say, no, then shame on you! There is nothing wrong with missing a practice, a game, a skill session etc. If you are not at the very least asking, on occasion, want to go bowling, a movie, vacation weekend,play another sport, anything but hockey, then shame on you.
I don’t know a single decent youth player in our town and we have more than a few that aren’t multi-sport athletes. I can see it at high school level but before that? Don’t generally see it.
