I guess one of our parents wanted to call the game because we were loosing and she didn't want our kids to get a poor self esteem????? I guess several of our parents got quite upset about the whole thing and this mom passed around the "Parent Code of Conduct" sheet which even made the other parents madder. This same mom, which is a teacher at our school, I guess told one of the coaches he shouldn't be coaching. Honestly, although he is a nice guy, he is a hot head and pretty tough on the kids. He asked the kids if they wanted to quit and only one of them did so he told him to get off the field he didn't want quitters on his team. Just for the record, our main coach was on vacation and I think things would have been different if he was there!!
My kids are playing football to have FUN and to LEARN how to play football and to learn to be on a team.
- I DON'T want my kids team to forfeit so their feeling get don't get hurt, they have to learn to be good losers as well as good winners.
- I also don't think they need to be bullied around by coaches or parents.
- I think they need some strict rules about team playing and encouraged to do they're best and to have fun.
It is a GAME people, for 7-9 year old kids. It is a learning experience. They are not out there to make millions of dollars or to be holding hands with their moms, they are out there to play, learn and have fun!! Parents and coaches please calm down and enjoy watching our kids play the GAME of football!
