ND High School Hockey 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Players wrote a letter to the AD expressing concerns about Chase's behavior towards the players. That's as much detail as I will go into for now.

The majority of people in Grand Forks that are familiar with the program, will tell you that Chase isn't regarded very highly when it comes to his coaching ability.  He was successful for years because most of the talent was at RR.  That being said, there's more to this than just some kids/parents bitching to the AD......that's been going on for years with Chase.  Something more happened here for this to occur right before EDC instead of waiting for after the season.

I said it before and I'll say it again. This has nothing to do with winning and losing.

 Sorry hockey parents, but overall you guys are the  worst group, it’s a wonder we still have coaches voluntarily wanting to coach and officials willing to work anymore.  Parents of all sports are creating a shortage of officials and coaches willing to volunteer,  but sorry hockey moms and dads you guys top the list!

100% agreed. A youth hockey game can be an absolutely nasty environment.

This is the hard truth.  I coached high school....parents terrible....  Quit coaching and teaching and got into officiating to help our youth program.....parents terrible.....

The last game I ever reffed was a 12U girls game that turned into a travesty when two girls hit each other head on with both their heads down going for a loose puck.  

God I hope I don't turn into one of those parents....

AD took a survey of players and wasn’t good.  Much like Fargo Davis program, parents running the show

I think the Davies situation was more player driven than parent driven.

You mean not every kid is going to make it to the next level?!

Local news radio made it sound like coach got tired of dealing with all the parents bullcrap.

GF Herald posted the article online minutes before your first post about it. Or maybe simultaneously. 

...and I had heard about it well before then.  Does that make me a step above the GOBC?

Considering you thought Hakstol was a bad coach, he should be glad of your characterization.

We’re all a step above the GOBC.

Bill is such a great person, but the south end pressure from Central's success has won over?

Gotta be somethin else.  Bill is a great guy and and GF has always ebbed and flowed between the two programs.  Had Paranica (former Sioux player) not got that job RR would continue to dominate.

At least Chase has won a title as a coach.......something Hakstol can't say at any level.

Parent/ coaches even worse....

What I've witnessed this year from parent/coaches is shocking ...even for an experienced youth coach.

Coaches berating young officials, calling opposing teams skater.. "fat ass".. a 12 year old .... being called names by a grown grossly obese peewee coach.... my god...... 

coaches confronting kids in handshake lines... young coaches riling up players to go out and "take out" players ... 

its so so so bad... i almost want to put closed circut cams above every bench in every arena. Maybe if these coaches knew their actions and screaming was recorded.. maybe it would help.

To be fair there are some really good people out there donating a lot of time energy effort and emotion in making kids better people and better hockey players.... but

those bad apples,  absolutely embarrassing..... boarding criminal.

It's a great thing that GF/EGF players have committed to and played for UND Hockey.

At the same time, it's also the worst thing that could have happened to GF youth hockey.  Now these parents see that the Bowen's, Poolman's, Caulfield's, etc have made it to the top so why can't their kid?  Hence the paranoia.
