Might be a good time to become a leader. Instead of relying on your coach to tell them what to do why don't you tell them yourself? Some kids won't listen to authority and think people that are older than them know nothing-I know I was one of them. Leading by expample isn't working, learn how to talk to people, not all personalities are the same so yelling at one person will have the opposite effect as another. Try to rally the troops so you get the best out of each of them and learn what drives tese kids, if they like to play hockey or maybe they don't like you and your friend and think you guys are puck hogs or glory hounds who chew up ice time? The key is talk to them, find out what they're about and then choose a plan of attack after that. Sometimes all it takes is one sit down and people will be ready to either follow your lead or get the F out.
