Dang, forgot to post this earlier this week.

Talked to a good friend of mine, also a referee. I have coached his kid in hockey, he has coached my kid in baseball. He officiated the championship of the Squirt A International in Fargo last weekend. Vanek’s Stillwater team was in the championship and he said it was probably the best coached youth team he has ever seen/heard. He said coaches were positive, but firm and coached, didn’t berate or get down on the kids when they made mistakes. Never made any comments about calls or anything else. He was incredibly impressed and I only say this because not much impressed this guy when it comes to coaching youth sports. He’s also a UND fan so that helped solidify that he was truly impressed.
