well... here comes hell week!

Well, The next 10 days are sure to be stressful for many kids and parents.

Just realize you will have to listen to delusional parents who insist that their kid, who refuses to pass the puck and is a cancer on the bench, is better than they are, and how they got robbed of a better spot.

And you will watch certain parents use their $$, influence, and networking skills, to "ass kiss" their lazy or shitty attitude kids way onto a team. They have been calling and emailing the coaches for weeks already. Let us pray the coaches stay professional and just.

Let us all remember that only 4.8% of us will have our sons play division 1 hockey.
Estimated probability of competing in college athletics | NCAA.org - The

And High school senior players eventually drafted by an NHL team: About 0.4 percent. That's the chance of flipping heads eight times in a row. try it.

We all want what best for our kids but that might be playing at the proper level, making great friends, and absorbing the life lessons that hockey teaches rather than making our kids feel inadequate because they aren't one of the 0.4%

Good luck to all the great young players out there!

Great post. That's the sad fact about hockey tryouts. Glad it's officially over for us.

Would be nice if they pushed tryouts back and give kids a chance to be kids for a month or two before getting back at it.
That would also eliminate so many of the recruiting problems.
But of course the rinks need to make their money...
So never mind.

"My kids making it on merit." Coming from someone who is probably the volunteer team manager. Sorry your kid would get cut otherwise.

Im actually a coach wise ass and I didn't select my own kid last season because hes not ready,  He plays on a B team because that is the best place for him right now. I just am sick of all the ass sucking around this time of year.

I've witnessed everything you just posted about every year on every team my kids have played on. It's got to be exhausting for the Coaches.

My pet peeve is when people assume that they just advance to the next level because it's the next year and they are the "major" birth year.

Coaching levels are a joke!  You pay USA hockey, go to a one day “clinic”, no test, no actual skill training, get your level 1. Repeat for next 3 years and you become a level 4 coach for life.  OnLine training modules are too long and too simple, mostly dealing with basic info.  Level 5 attend a weekend clinic.

If you are looking at coaches, you need to find resumes and real experience that the coaches have, to be able to judge if the coach is really good or just has the papers!
