Should a parent coach his own at these levels ? If player deserves to be on team or not ?

No....most ( not all ) coaching their child are only there because his son would get cut if he wasn't on the coaching staff

no they should not coach their own kid. even with the best of intentions they can't separate the roles of parent and coach. if a team has a parent coach, run!

minor hockey would be destroyed without parent volunteers. Non-parent is ideal at AA/AAA level but not always possible. Its 20 hours a week of your life to "volunteer". Most non parents can't afford that kind of time. So do you pay?? How much? expenses= $2500 per non parent for expenses. Pay= $20 an hour x 20 hours a week x 8 months= $13000 minimum. $20-$40 is more common.

So pick your poison. Parent coach, paid non parent, no team?

isn't that the best place to put the $$$$$$? Into coaching? Why go to tournaments and buy a bunch of team gear if the coach is only there for the development and betterment of one kid?

Give up the fancy tournies and fancy clothes and start learning some real hockey skills! Put the money into good coaching.

Start asking yourself what your thousands should be going to... you are shelling out the $$$ already.

Registration #'s are already down accross the country. 5-10K per year to play A-AAA hockey. Add another 1K to top up a paid non-parent=another death blow to hockey generally.

As PP said, hockey (all minor sport) would die without parent volunteers. AAA coach's should be non-parents if possible but after that, its impossible.

It's a sad commentary on our society now, but with the time commitment that's involved, you have to wonder why someone who isn't a parent wants to coach.

For the money. Good, proven, non-parent coach in the G should be getting about $15-$20k, roughly $1000 per kid. I have no problem paying that to a coach who will put in about 250 hours a year toward the program.
