Generally as my son got older, the practices got to be a more reasonable time. Also, usually there was a rotation amongst teams so it wasn't always 6am practices all the time. It might vary in different minor hockey leagues though.
Anyway, I never minded it too much. It was always funny driving in to the rink in the dark and our son would be in the back seat chirping up saying, "Look! The lights are on in that house, they must be getting ready to go play hockey too!" He loved early morning practices, in fact still does - nothing better than stepping onto clean, dry ice and not having to wait for the zamboni to finish up.
