It’s gross. Parents don’t want their kid falling behind. They think that it’s a steady climb up with development and every time their kid hits the ice it’s a step up. They couldnt be more wrong
Or it could just be that a kid likes to play hockey you douche bag
My kid is at a low end tournament this weekend and having a blast. Constant smiles that you can’t put a price on. If you call something a money grab then you are a loser with an opinion. It’s all an investment in your kids. It’s all about picking the most efficient investments if money is an issue. If it’s not then let your kids play if they want to. My 10 year old will skate 365 days a year if I let her. Am I supposed to discourage that and say no you are taking a few months off to play tennis? Come on man.
We specifically block time in the summer when we will stay out of the rink at all costs. My kids want to skate every day too but if they do then they'll never catch any fish or air on their mountain bikes. Taking breaks while still staying active is important.
