There are some crazed parents on each of the top 3 yj teams, and plenty of quiet under the radar nice parents too. It would be nice to group all of the crazy parents together on one team-I'm sure each team could come up with a consensus of five that bring the team and mood down, not up. "It's the ref's; it's the coaches; it's the bracket (too high or too low); she should play more; she should play less; she is a scorer not a defender;" It's about your daughter, not you. Park your ego and in the porta potty. No one cares where you played a quarter century ago. Ask yourself this, if your daughter makes a bad play who's reaction is more negative-in words, body language or tone-you or the coaches? If it's the coaches, then look for greener pastures; if it is you, and IT IS, STFU. You are painful.
Great tournament, venue, format and competition. Congrats Spallina and Steps Blue.
Be humble and kind. Don't burn bridges. The sands are always shifting.
