Confessions of a Minor Hockey Coach: The Truth About Parents
Submitted By Tiffany Hart on Fri 12 18, 15
The Coaches’ Vision

We coach minor hockey because of the memories it left with us and the impact hockey had on our formative years. It’s the most powerful game on Earth, and we owe the game to give back.

Here’s what most coaches are trying to accomplish:
• everyone has a positive experience
• everyone has fun playing with their friends
• everyone gets better and learns skills on and off the ice
• everyone wants to come back next year in some capacity

Sometimes the vision of the coach will differ from that of the parent, and that’s fine. Hopefully it doesn’t interfere with the positive experience of the child.

However, we all know that often it does interfere. I feel bad for those parents and their families. You only get a couple years to enjoy your child’s minor hockey experience, and you might miss out on what the game has to offer, this year and in the future.
