It was total chaos and one of our coaches was pissed at the league for wasting time on it. Funny thing was, after practice it was all the kids wanted to talk about. They loved it and it got them in a good mood for the rest of the practice. Sometimes, you just gotta let them be kids.
LOL. The scary thing is, that coach that was upset makes up the majority of coaches in most leagues.
They don't see the obvious advantages of these fun games.
Soccer on ice teaches incredible skating skills.
But I've had parents who have literally said that if they're kid isn't crying when they get off the ice, it wasn't a good practice. I wish I was joking about that.
