Episode 79: Parents Paying, Switching Positions and a Voicemail

It has been a while since the boys have opened the mailbag, but we have received tons of your questions and we chose some of the best to answer on this week’s episode! Prior to the mailbag, Motts takes us through his third place finish on the golf course, BY & Motts living the #YachtLife, and the guys provide an update on the upcoming street hockey festival. Then the mailbag opens up to answer some questions on some topics including:

Parents paying to attend youth tournaments
What skills coaches look for at younger levels
What is happening to sports nowadays and kids just having fun?
Players switching positions each game
The My Hockey Rankings Question of the Week
+ more!
