Do you even have kids that weren't cut? Maybe your nieces, nephews or grandkids don't want you to be seen as representing their team.
parents wearing youth hockey sway looks silly
Of all the things in the world to worry about I'm not sure why anyone cares about this. There are far worse things to wear. How about swag with where you work logos?
I know a couple dads that live through their kids program. Terrible people. They also wear Bauer jackets but never played the game.
Why would this only apply to daughters? I am a dad who also chooses not to wear any of his sons teams gear either. High School, sure. Not club teams though.
OP here. Lot's of Upper Gold and BHL parent's rocking the team gear I see. CONGRATS!!! Don't let me take that away from you. You should advertise your kids mediocrity every chance you get. No matter what you say or what justifications you have, If I see you in the rink with an Islanders or a breakers hoodie and you are under 18 you are a looooooooosah. I will give coaches a pass but that is borderline embarrassing too. look presentable.
