“The fighting starts within the stands with the parents who are yelling and growling,” she said.
“Then it kind of spreads down to the ice and it gets all the kids all worked up and then they are into it.”
Miller said parents often get verbally abusive at the officials and the players.
“I’ve had a mother scream to her kid to rip my kid’s head off in a game,” she said. “He was 15 at the time.”
