Wow, you talk about wanting and teaching the wrong things out of sports. Too bad for the kid.We just had our first great parent incident of the season.
Player didn't make the travel team. He did the previous season, but his parents pulled him with about 3 games left in the season because they felt he wasn't getting enough playing time. They were also convinced the coach was terrible. Evidence was, of course, a losing record. We figured he wasn't going to tryout for this season. He did and looked a little better, but didn't make the team.
Turns out a spot opened up on the team a couple of days before the first game. This player being next on the list was invited back.
After the first weekend of games, he never showed up for practice. Turns out his parents pulled him again because he didn't get enough playing time. They had it timed to the second. First games of the season when he had practiced with the team once...
Did they pay?
