I urge you to attend a 2013 Top Gun "elite" game. You will feel a lot better about your kids coaches.
Watch out TG 2013...2013 Bandits coaches have already been suspended and one was kicked out of the rink in the first game. They have set the bar high this year.
Just talked about those yelling coach last night after a few cold ones with the parents. Got to witness it first hand this past weekend. Nothing says coaching like screaming orders at mites from the bench
A screaming coach is 100 times better than screaming parents. Parents screaming look like fools, embarrass and confuse their kids who should be listening to the coach.
+1. I wish my kid's coach would give him a nice kick in the ass once in a while.
screaming from the bench does nothing but freeze up the young player when he hears it, while also taking away the players own decision making development. very counter productive. let them play and make their own decisions, coach them before or after not during.
But what would the kid do without parents coaching from stands??? Hahaha hockey is so much fun
I watched my son play youth hockey and his coach was strict but fair and never yelled during games. He yelled at practices to get his point across. In my humble opinion find a good coach and stick with him. You don't scream at youth hockey players and expect results, wait until high school! And parents take it easy and stop the screaming and foolishness at games! Let the kids enjoy the game and make memories because it doesn't last forever!
