Funny how you can sit back and watch your child bust their a$$ at skills that has been prepaid, but since your whole team can't be there (school, family, illness, walk-on skills for $30) your coaches get punished by games being cancelled, scrimmages being cancelled, full ice practices getting swapped for half ice... this isnt only a one birth year issue. its happening to multiple teams out of the same organization. But, lesson learned i suppose... next year pick a coach that is willing to meat ride the director.
If you are talking about u14 then get use to it. It is by far the most difficult playing year to manage and happens at every organization.
