Lets see, a young club that when last seen didn't have a clue how to play or commit to system hockey and Ralphs answer to this is about refraining from "overcoaching"?
Hopefully this is just a smokescreen because its a ridiculous idea. The one thing a young, impressionable, and inexperienced club needs is careful practice, getting the team play down right, and getting lots of coaching and feedback.
