BECAUSE THEY WON'T LET YOU!!!!! Think about GC like Hogwarts - you have the Purebloods (born and raised in GC) now most of them are Slytherin but some are nice good people like Harry Potter so he ends up in Gryfindor (but the majority end up in Slytherin). If you are a Half Blood (maybe your spouse was born in GC) then you get invited some events but if it is your wife - you can't be a lax coach etc. your not allowed! Now once in a while, a Muggle comes along who turns out to be a great wizard like Hermoine. In this case maybe you're from Rockville Centre, Manhassat etc. you may have played college lacrosse, maybe even at a major DI program! In that case, you might be allowed to be an assistant coach but usually only in 2nd,3rd or 4th grade (or a girl's team) because the Pureblood(Slytherins) don't want any half-bloods or muggles messing with the way GC has been doing things since the glory days of Doc. Now if your son happens to be a superstar quidditch (or lacrosse) player he will play regardless for sure but, if he is on the cusp - Draco Malfoy gets the nod 9 times out of 10 and he is usually the one who ends up in the burning room (across from the AD)at the end the end of the story and his parents have to come and take him home...I hope this helps.
Garden City is a mess. Just look at the parents behavior and braggadocio attitudes and its easy to see where this type of behavior comes from. Leave the coach alone. Take aim at the residents. Did I mention our PAL program is a mess with infighting as well? The protectionism is rampant for all the little Johnnies and their doomed fate if god forbid they don't make the A team. Friends turning their backs on each other and all the squabbling and political maneuvering... makes me sick. Most of the oafs involved were not much to speak of in their day to boot...joke.
Why don't you get up from behind the keyboard that you are hiding behind, grab a whistle and volunteer your time like these so called oafs are doing. We are always looking for more volunteers to assist with our program. Boy, it must be a nice view from the cheap seat, huh.
