Re: Need a new team

Anon
I told my kid he played great after the team got beat by 6 goals. He started crying and I couldn’t get him to calm down. His team didn’t play good. Lots of mistakes. A bunch of kids looked they forgot to take their medication if you know what I mean. I don’t want his squirt major season to be like this but it is starting to go like this a lot. Honestly, he’s the only bright spot on the team and that’s not good for a goalie. The coach keeps yelling at him to work harder in practice but last thing he should be worried about is my son.
Problem # 1 - knocking his teammates
Problem # 2 - thinking your kid is the only bright spot
Problem # 3 - crying after a game in October
Problem # 4 - A 2012 Crying after a loss
Problem # 5 - you thinking the coach shouldn’t be telling your kid to work harder

You may have entered your son in the wrong sport. If you can't handle being part of a team, which means winning and losing together, then you may want to take your superstar to an individual sport. At this level I can assure you his parents are the only one's thinking he is the "only bright spot". Do the other families playing in 2012 a favor and don't change teams. They don't need you in the stands.

Re: Need a new team

Tell your son to suck it up and stop being a baby as losing is a BIG part of playing net and it's the position he chose to play. I am sure in all these losses he has also let in a few soft goals too, after all, he is a kid. To quit now and go somewhere else is screwing over his team (let alone the other 15+ families) and its only going to hurt him later in life when he is working a normal job like 99.9999% of the kids he is playing against or wherever you end up. Think for a minute, you are solving the immediate problem over nonsense like youth hockey win's to tarnish your son's re****tion as he gets older. Kids are not as innocent as you think - they will also remember your goalie left them high and dry and will take it out on him either on the ice next season or years down the line when they are drinking beers in the woods and remember he walked. Nothing worse than having the label as a quitter following you around- so get him some boxing gloves when he goes to the other club. It's why most parents believe in the fact that once you commit, you commit. If you don't like the team, there are plenty of options when it comes to youth tryouts. In the end, nobody cares or remembers how many games he lost or goals he let in playing youth hockey either.

If your kid didn’t see 70 shots more than your total GA, he didn’t have a great game. (That’s shots on goal, would have scored if he didn’t save. I know how goalie parents like to count every foul ball their kids reaches for)

Your teams bright spot has a job to do also. So tell him to clean up his facial leaking and get to work.
