Top teams at 2nd and 3rd Grade you got to be kidding me.
Anything to help parents live there own failures through their
Enough with the parents trying to live through their kids, pleases, stop using this as a cop out.
That being said, if your child wants to learn any sport know what is the best method for your child to learn a sport. and dont forget you are the parent and get out there and play with them.
If you have been around the youth sports arena you will see in this day and age there is a big division of talent starting as low as 2nd 3rd grade level.
More times than not, it isnt fair to the child, coaches, and yes parents (those who spend their time and money) if you do not split players by talent. Split them so they can learn and grow. Just as long as they are challenged and fairly measured each year with fair and open communication.
But if you are new to this it could be disheartening, just continually being honest with yourself, know where your child's abilities are and help them grow within the sport and dont put the sole responsibility on the shoulders of a coach/organization.
If you do that, you will not put your child our yourself into a "situation" and will maintain a healthy relationship within the sport for your child and yourself. A relationship which can foster many benefits beyond the sporting fields.
If you are new many towns and organizations have clinics and camps, I'd recomend them as your first experience into LI YOUTH LAX.
If you are not new, to this, please stop saying people are living through their kids.
