    Hmmm, I’m sorta thinking that I might do one for baseball on my blog…lots of this applies, but there are some different things. I loved this!

    Certain folks will not abide, so you have to wind up cutting the problem parents. So if you are one of the parents out there who give soccer coaches issues, complain about them behind their backs, or miss sessions and so forth, plan that you might be getting your kid cut from the team.

    Nice. I could definitely use this. If only the parents would read it and apply it. Sometimes I’m lucky if the kids have the right size shoes.

    I agree whole heartedly with talking directly to the coach about your concerns. Spreading your parental qualms among the other parents is the quickest way to disassemble a team. Respect your child, the coach, and most importantly the team. The one who will benefit the most will be your child. Isn’t that why we sacrafice to get to practice, go on the road for tourneys, buy 3 pairs of cleats a year, and endure the inevitable farmers tan from long days in the sun? I love this game. My three kids do too!

    Yea well you have some coaches that have no clue what they are doing and they are so arrogant.

    If you are interested in any ‘guest posts’ just give me a shout. I am also an AYSO coach and have a couple of recent blog posts that may interest you, one in particular for coaches regarding staying onside with referees!
