“There are so many avenues you can take part in these days as a player.”

That’s Steve Spott in an interview during the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s Annual General Meeting we had the pleasure of attending last June. Spott is an assistant coach with the San Jose Sharks, a team that we can all probably agree faces some fairly lofty expectations.

It’s the coach’s responsibility to deliver that honesty. If a player has unrealistic expectations of themselves, then disappointment is inevitable. That’s not to say that disappointment isn’t part of the game, but multiple let-downs of the severe variety could do long-term damage to a player’s confidence and take them out of the game entirely.
