Editor’s Note: The following was adapted from a list created by David Lynch, trainer for 8- and 9-year-old soccer players at Stockholm soccer club AIK.
Here are 24 tips for parents raising young hockey players:
1- The kids pack and prepare their own hockey bag.
2- Always be on time for practice.
3- Make them put their dirty training undergarments in the wash.
4- Tell them to give 100 percent at practice and games.
5- The kids carry their own hockey bag in and out of the ice rink. That’s carry, not wheel.
6- Teach them how to tighten their own skates.
7- Play hockey with them, where they want and when they want to.
8- Make them wear their equipment until it’s been outgrown, then buy new equipment.
9- Buy them new skates when they need them, not when they want them.
10-Buy second-hand skates and save yourself a fortune.
11-Teach them not to hate other teams.
12-Win or lose, remind them to love the game, and the game will love them back.
13-They will respect teammates, the opposition, the refs, the other team’s coaches. If you don’t teach them this, the coach will have to do it.
14-Let them dream they can be a Patrick Kane, but don’t give them any expectations.
15-Blaming teammates, blaming the ref, blaming anything is out. This goes for the players and parents. Set a good example.
16-Let them play hockey at home with a tennis ball.
17-Take them to hockey games and let them watch the pros.
18-Tell them hockey is for fun. Practice is for fun. If it isn’t fun for them, talk to the coach/club or move to another club.
19-Encourage them to watch hockey training videos on YouTube and let them try and perfect some of the moves.
20-Encourage them, support them, but never ever shout out instructions from the bleachers.
21-Don’t car-coach after practices or games. It sucks the fun out of the game. They know if they played well or poorly.
22-Encourage them to play other sports.
23-Don’t try to “train” your kid. Take them out, ask what they want to do and let them do it.
24-Tell your kids that you love watching them play.

Springfield College will host the 22nd annual Athletic Training Student Workshop June 28 to July 2. The workshop is a residential camp for high school students who want to explore career opportunities in athletic training and related sports medicine disciplines.
The Athletic Training Student Workshop focuses on anatomy, injury prevention, and care of common lower extremity athletic injuries. Students will learn the latest information about athletic injury prevention, recognition, and management, all while participating in hands-on exploration of cadaver anatomy. Three whole body cadavers and a small class size give the attendees the opportunity to explore the human anatomy up close. The students also participate in a presentation about the different career options within athletic training.
Designed like a professional continuing education conference, the workshop features short lectures and demonstrations followed by breakout sessions for applied learning. Practice sessions are built into the schedule for participants to learn and refine their taping skills. Additionally, the instructors create a fun educational environment and provide abundant feedback to the students in a positive manner. With a low student-to-instructor ratio, each participant is regularly engaged with individual attention from the instructors throughout the five-day camp.

I grabbed a menu at Denny’s a while ago. ( Just FYI, I love breakfast). I think it is really cool that they give you calorie info. Not sure if anyone but geeks like me read them but…
The best advice, at Denny’s is to go the Build Your Own Slam route.
The number one goal at breakfast should be to load up on protein. If you want carbs, get fruit.
Some reminders, particularly is your goals is to lose weight or bodyfat:
- No pancakes, hash browns or biscuits. 2 pancakes is 330 cal, hash browns 210 and 1 biscuit 190. 2 eggs is only 250 calories and gets you 13 gms of protein
- Choose bacon over sausage if you like breakfast meat. 2 slices of bacon checks in at 70 cal while 2 sausage links is 180
- Skip the toast. 2 slices of buttered toast? 270 cal.
So, 2 eggs with bacon is only 320 calories while the All American Slam is 800 calories. To Build Your Own Slam, you get to pick 4 items. You can get double eggs, bacon and even splurge with whole wheat pancakes for less than 800 calories.
Either way, think protein at breakfast as goal one.

One thing that is always in fashion is bashing something that you didn’t invent. I think Velcro is stupid. Not really but, I just wanted to show how silly it is to bash a great idea. Velcro is a great idea. Great for shoes for kids and old people and lots of other stuff. Not so great for adult shoes? But does that make Velcro a bad idea?
The Functional Movement Screen is a great idea. It’s such a great idea that most ( not all) smart people I know have embraced it to some degree. A few people have taken to the internet to criticize it. The thing I like most is that the people who criticize it don’t use it. If you don’t use something how can you be so sure it has little value. Recently Vern Gambetta again took the time to criticize the FMS.
Gambetta states “It is a borderline waste of time that generates random numbers without transfer to real life situations.”
I have trouble seeing how the numbers 0-3 can be considered random? In reality, the numbers have a very simple and easy to follow system behind them. 3 is great, 2 is good ( but not great), 1 is a big problem and 0 is “we need help”. Not too random.
Vern goes on to say “If you force the body to conform to unusual, strange, often uncomfortable positions – Is that a valid assessment?”
Ok, if that was the case I might agree. However I’m just not sure if stepping, squatting, kneeling, being on your back or on all fours constitutes a series of uncomfortable positions?
This last one is a tough one?
“I want to see how the athlete can make connections and transitions not get in positions that are mentally convenient and easy to measure .”
A bit contradictory? Are the positions unusual, strange and uncomfortable or, mentally convenient and easy to measure? Two widely divergent criticisms of the same system.
Bottom line, I don’t think Vern has never taken the time to really study or understand the FMS. In some ways I get it. I wrote an article for my StrengthCoach.com site called Will the FMS Cure Most Communicable Diseases that made the point that the FMS is a screen. That’s all it is. A simple starting point to look at movement and injury potential. The FMS is, for better or worse, the best tool we have now. It has conncected the weight room and the training room and given a young personal trainer a place to begin to understand movement from. Gray and Lee have never presented it to be more than that but, others have. Maybe that’s part of the problem. I use this picture to explain the FMS.
It’s a screen for separating rocks from dirt. The dirt falls through, the rocks get stuck. That’s the FMS. The rocks are 1’s and 0’s. Everything else falls through. Tough to criticize?

Should you take a probiotic? Evidence seems to be mounting that gut health may be more important than we ever thought. Celiac disease, Chron’s Disease, inflammatory bowel disease? These are all things that seem to have developed in our lifetime? I wonder about the widespread anti-biotic use in our food and by doctors? People run off for a Z-Pack at the first sniffle? I know I get criticized for my Mercola articles but, he makes me think.

I am excited to report that I will be speaking at the 2015 Seattle Sounders Sports Science Seminar.
Dave Tenney, High Performance Director for the Seattle Sounders, has done a fantastic job of growing this event over the past 5 years. He always brings in great international speakers and this year is no different. Attendees often range from those in the NFL, NBA, MLS, EPL, and other Olympic Organizations as well as independent strength coaches.
This years event will be held on Tuesday June 9 – Thursday June 11. The event has grown in attendees each year, so be sure to sign up soon as possible as it always sells out. Registration details and details on the current list of confirmed speakers (NOTE: Dave is still adding more speakers) can be found HERE .
Hope to see you there!

Every once in a while it pays to ask. Have you seen Functional Strength Coach 5? Take a look at what one of our former MBSC Mentorship attendees had to say about Functional Strength Coach 5.
In an information age that can easily confuse and overload (as well as break the bank of) the less experienced coach/trainer, Functional Strength Coach 5 is 7 hours of information that will simplify the process. It will put the less experienced on a path of Mike Boyle’s philosophies that have proven to be successful on every level. You will find yourself saying “this stuff finally makes sense” and gain more confidence in your abilities to train others. Even though I have studied and implemented Mike’s system for 13 years, I found many more tweaks that will make my coaching better. I also found myself motivated to “stay the course” and realize good fundamental philosophies…
