Sportsmanship Starts in the Stands
The game of hockey is for kids. Kids play the game because they love it and because it is fun. As parents we must realize, that for kids, positive participation is always more important than excellence. The personal and social development that comes from being part of a team is one of the most enriching experiences offered by the game.
Being a hockey parent is no easy task. Hockey parents often fill not only the role of parent, but also the role of an essential hockey volunteer. Parents may be coaches, evaluators, directors, etc. Balancing these roles can be challenging. That is why BC Hockey and Hockey Canada provide resources and programs to assist parents in ensuring that their children’s hockey experiences are positive.
