We have learned over the years that not only do the kids need coaching, but a little guidance for our parents has proven to be quite helpful too! There is no shortage of hockey mom and dad advice out there, and here are a couple of favorites to support your role as a positive sports parent:
Children learn best by example, so applaud the good plays of both teams. Do not embarrass your child by yelling at players, coaches or officials. Show a positive attitude toward the game and all of its participants and support the officials on and off the ice. Applaud a good effort in both victory and defeat. Keep it fun for everyone - yourself included.
