When I was in minor hockey and we played poorly we literally had hour practices with NO pucks. All skating drills over and over again. Now-a-days these parents who are coddling their kids will have none of that.
I used to beg and plead just so my dad would buy me an Easton Aluminum. Watched my nephew play Atom and most of these kids are using $200 Synergys. And some even have a second one as their back-up stick! What 11 year old needs that?
There are even motions by Hockey Moms trying to ban body contact in Bantam. Slowly dying are the days of rough and tough Canadian hockey.
I coach a AA team where when we try to do that the parents will complain about us and tell their kids we aren't doing anything wrong and that we are mean.
