I love any type of insight to the managing, scouting, coaching side of the game. You can watch the players perform during a game, but you rarely get to see the other parts of the sport. 

 

Unpopular opinion perhaps, I just felt like these two guys were awkward and kinda dorky after I watched the video. I don't know.. maybe I'm getting old.

If you want to get closer to the working, strategies,measuring players strongpoint or weaknesses etc try coaching a minor hockey team such as Pee Wee or Bantam. I will warn you it spoils your future as a fan. Rather than watching the game you're concentrating on teams faults and failings and how to best to address them. You see the game suddenly through different eyes. Heck try scouting for a collage or Uni team, attend the meeting and the subsequent break down.

I took my boy through PeeWee, Bantam and Midget. Was the team manager. Incredible amount of work but I cherish the memories. Couple of weekends ago my grandson came to town and played. My son was coach of his team and the coach of our home town team was his old team mate from minor hockey days. Their still great friends. After the game we all had a great visit. 

 

Being involved in minor hockey had its moments. Parents who did not understand the game, parents who could not control themselves, drunk parents, Parents who did not care whether their kid played or not and parents who lobbied me to play their kid on certain lines. Generally appreciative parents, parents who helped with travel, parents who kept score and ran time clocks. Good and bad. Like I said great memories. My son still plays commercial hockey. He regularly thanks me for what I did. Oh ya, 6:00 am hockey practices! Loved them!

My new dream job. 

Get involved in hockey, learn to cut/edit video (very basic skills needed looks like), take an Intro to Stats course, and then start volunteering for a college or junior team. 

 

Edit: These are my uneducated guesses. Perhaps someone can chime in.

Yeah for sure some of the best times. The funny thing is my sons friends are basically friends he played hockey with. For a laugh he played some minor pro in UK for a couple of years. There again maybe it was  because he was threatened with acdemic probation LOL.  My daughter got a full ride in the USA and they were after players from BC. So I scouted for a few years, very time consuming. I sent a couple of players to Uni, boys and  girls. That was good. I ddon't know how I intially got roped into coaching but as you say it's very rewarding. Now my son lives in the UK married with children done very well for himself and is coaching his own son. All from hockey :)

That plus the one word that everyone needs in order to get a foot in the door: Connections.

Yup, that's true in all of life. 

 

Always helps to be social and talk to people and make connections.
