I'm a head coach of a rec atom hockey team here in Ontario.
The coaches and I just assigned our team captains but they have yet to be announced to the team.
I find myself struggling with how to word it to the boys. We've chosen the four best character players not necessarily the highest skilled players.
I could honestly give an "A" to every player but that's not an option.
Any tips or suggestions on how I can soften the blow to the kids not picked?
