Well yeah most of the time I'm helping the kids. But if I see someone start to get bored or frustrated I would try to engage them by being silly.

I did find the hand thing to help too. A few kids were able to get themselves up just grabbing the hand and it helped them figure out how to do it by themselves. A couple kids were able to get up holding on to an outstretched hockey stick.

One frustrating thing was that there were two kids who couldn't stand up by themselves last session...including my son. It turns out the only coaches who were able to help them were me and the other kid's mom. So we are trying to teach our own kids to stand up and skate, which is ridiculous.
