Some loser dads like to post on FB every time their bender steps on the ice for those spring and summer tourneys. I think that's worse than the kids insta accounts.
Look up the Jr Bruins on Instagram..OMG, every move is posted. Today they skated, ate, got on a plane, ate again, swam, carried their bags, had a photo shoot, it just never ends.
Oh i've seen it...but the team is trying to run a business and they have a social media person who is paid to do that. Social media marketing is huge for a business but now i guess the parents are marketing the kids. An insta page for a business is different than a parent who creates a page for their kid and also posts everything the kid does that is hockey related.
Will O'neill hockey posts something every 10 minutes as well.
Will the kids who don't create accounts be left out when it comes time to be noticed for high school/college?
I know a couple of crazy hockey moms that post every single goal their kid scores playing in the 8th division of the EHF. They tag every single hockey team, league, coach, tournament…it’s sickening. Kind of like being the tallest midget.
Just wait til creepy coaches start sliding into your kids' DM's. Hi - I saw you playing at the Shamrock Shootout Lucky and I think you are special. We'd love to get to know you better on and off the ice...
Are you really surprised by anything overly-energetic parents would do?
I feel a little divided on this one ok people. My children do not do the Insta or the Facebook or the Tweet Tweet or the Tickity Tock thingy. However, our family friends have so many good posts up from all the tournaments they do and their kids are sooooooo good. They are always scoring incredible goals. So I guess they are promoting their little athletes and so be it.
Well that all the time I have for today :wink: Off to the best Pure Hockey store I know lol. We need new a couple of new black helmets and some black gloves hint hint hehehe!!!!!
I don’t mind the accounts or videos - but the moms who post the comments imitating their child is disturbing. They need their own life.
