Indeed, the parent should have called theschool and the coach to blame for this out publicly to gather some awareness, because it basically is robbery of parent money. And the guilty party no doubt will continue to "tax" unsuspecting parents.

Well, I think, the first thing the parents should do, before sending their kid to a hockey school, is check, whether the coaches are even licensed by the federation. Because the number of licensed coaches in Latvia is very, very small.
Federation should do the first step and simply publish the names of the licensed coaches on their website, it's all that's necessary. (still there's probably plenty of space for corruption in this field as well ) Heck, can anyone truly confirm if Tambijevs have any coaching badges? I know that Znaroks had them, he finished sports institute of Chelyabinsk and it's not hard to see why his teams are doing so well.
