I completely agree with doing away with dad coaches but football and lacrosse are 2 very different animals. One has travel. One does not. For those kids looking for more coaching, more competition etc. they get that with the various travel programs. Football struggles for many reasons, the biggest being fear of injury. Town sports is the opportunity to attract as many kids as you can to build the foundation and it needs to be affordable.
So you agree with doing away with Dad coaches, what's your answer to making it "affordable" when you get paid coaches to replace Daddy?
