Sad to read this, at that age, and really any age- having fun is what it is all about. As we get older competing and winning is fun, but at that age they just want to mess around.

I was in the locker room one day- and I heard a parent telling his son (who appears to be 7-9) to "go apologize to his goalie coach for sucking today." Seriously- he's not going to play in the NHL, let him have fun... that's what it is all about.

I'm not a parent, and I've never trained kids- but if he loves hockey but doesn't want to play league let him take a season off, keep playing floor hockey- set him up shooting pucks in the driveway and try to get him back into it in a year?
