Youth Hockey Coach Being Investigated

http://bc.ctvnews.ca/minor-hockey-coach-investigated-for-tripping-player-1.855138#axzz1yxbGbPcA

This is another example of how youth coaches forget that they are roles models for young men and women they coach.  I can not comprehend what was going through this coaches mind when he decided to trip an eleven year old boy after a hockey game.  What example does this set for his team, and god forbid if his own son was on his team?  It tells me that some of these coaches, and certainly not the majority, are in it for the wrong reasons.  It also puts a black eye on those youth coaches that set a great example, and are role models for the young children that are playing the sport.  I believe that this coach should never be able to coach youth  sports again if possible.  We will see what comes of the charges, but good for those parents in seeking justice for their sons.
