Hello everyone cant emphasize how Important coming to practice is for your childs development. Im not trying to tell you how to parent but I think its very important to show your kids that they are commtted to this program and need to be at every practice. The key word Im using is COMMITTED you want your child to learn early in life how to make an commitment to something and stay with it even when what they are committed too is not going there way they need to finish it out I promise you that will make them a strong and unique individual. Also guys you want to make practices cause thats where you truly get better its not the games its your practice time so please be at practice. Thanks guys
