I (21 F) work at ice rink and I really love watching everyone play hockey and skate! I decided to take a few skating lessons with one of our in house coaches. I can skate comfortably now but I’m still working on super basic stuff like gliding and my balance. Today I geared up and went on the ice...
Not even 20 minutes in, I’m starting to sweat bullets in all the gear! It felt super heavy and I was super embarrassed because not only some coaches I respect were teaching on the ST but our OWNER WAS GIVING LESSONS!! I looked like a complete fool and eventually got off the ice.
It almost feels like I need to build more muscle or do something to last longer out there with all the gear on! My thighs were killing me... Any advice?
I understand “No Pain, No Game” however now reflecting on it I think I need to keep staying out there getting comfortable/ used to the gear. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
So I have it for another month. I'm gonna make myself useful and pull whatever highlight you want me to. Just be really specific and I'll do my best to find the desired video. Leave me your request here and I'll do my best to get it back to you asap!
Coach is a paid high school varsity coach...
*doesn't show up to 1 of 3 practices every week.. said coach makes schedule and books ice slot.
*run the same 5-10 drills in practice for the last 5 years.
*belittles student athletes... you suck you will never be as good as player x.
doesn't play freshman players even with an extremely short bench. I.e. 4 defense and 8 forwards
doesn't talk to team between 2nd and 3rd....varsity hockey we get a zam before 3rd most games. Stands outside the locker room only opens the door to tell players that zam is almost done.
*coach allows players to play rock paper scissors to see which line starts the period.
I could go on and on... parents and players are feed up with said coaches level of commitment to the team.
Being a beer league captain is a thankless job. You start a team because you want to play hockey and nobody is willing to do the work. You don't get paid. You're a bank, a parent and a conflict resolution counselor for half your team. Through force of will, extortion, bribing and begging you keep the team going for as long as possible but eventually it runs its course. You've got a set of new recruits you picked up as you lost guys to injuries, children and relocation and they don't get along with the old guard. Some guys just want to drink beer and some guys just want to win and then drink beer. Your team has fragmented and it's no longer fun. You just want out. You want to join a new team or start a new team.
In this situation there's only one solution. None of your ideas to gracefully close things out will work. You have to fake your own death. Assume a new name, grow a mustache and affect an accent. Play up a division so they won't find you.
Otherwise you'll find yourself ranting on Reddit with a throwaway account...
You've been warned.
I tried looking around the internet and not much came up, so my question is what are some of the best ACHA programs? I’m not talking about the hockey side (I can look up the rankings myself lol), rather everything else. My thoughts are: What programs have a really nice facility, gym, locker room, team bus even? What schools get a lot of fans?
They said not enough consistent attendance for them to keep it up. They also said If enough people asked about it they might bring it back....
