Hockey Parents PLEASE Read This.


I can’t tell you how many times I have the “1/2 ice conversation” with parents. Parents just don’t get it. One of the big complaints in town hockey is lack of ice time but tell some frustrated NHL-coach- wanna-be that he has half a sheet and he rolls his eyes.

PLEASE take a minute and read this. The bottom line is that everyone who actually knows anything about hockey development favors 1/2 ice practice, 1/2 ice games and small games. If you don’t, ask yourself why?

  2. 1/2 ice helps push kids closer together, making it less of a game of keep away and focuses more on skills and drills. It also keeps the game moving, which keeps the kids interested and engaged.
