What is the point of having kids show up in ties and blazers for a youth hockey game? Especially when the coach shows up in a track suit and hurls expletives at the refs and kids for 3 periods.
Also for those coaches requiring kids to be there an hour early to "warm up" as a team. Its not working. I would say there is 0% correlation between the outdoor warm ups and results on the ice.
Pre game routine needs to be learned. It’s a good habit. It’s a chance to team build. Anyone with a brain knows that warm ups have no correlation with winning in youth hockey, but it starts to teach them about being focused. Read a few books and then post. You’ll sound smarter.
Agreed...Youth hockey warmups are designed to do a few things..
Teach the kids about preparation. (as a team)
Allow the kids to understand time management. (as a team)
Get the kids out of the car and moving around - most likeley coming out of a 30min-60min drive. (as a team)
Get them focused to play. (as a team)
