Word has it? You sound like the disgruntled one. You sure you’re not talking from experience and just coming on here to make a bad situation even worse? I’ll bet the ranch

A friend of mine told me about this post. My daughter is the one that left recently. I did not make the post above. My daughter left on good terms with the team and coaches, and I have nothing bad to say about them. M and D was good to her. She had been there for 4 years and it was just time for a change, plus we had some life changes that made logistics very difficult. We have nothing to gain by bad mouthing her former team so please don’t attribute words to people you don’t know.

I’ll take that ranch now. smile

I know most coaches played in college, but that's not the be all end all for lax coaches in my experience. My daughters have had a few coaches with top pedigrees in terms of college programs, but were not good coaches. If the coach has learned the game (and keeps learning), is all-in, and can run a good practice (no long lines and standing around), then the team is probably in good hands. The coach also has to be able to "see" the game well in terms of what's happening out there and be able to break concepts down into a teachable way. There are some good coaches out there who never played at a high level. Also, male coaches who played in college still need to learn the girls game ;-). Just my two cents.

We left M&D too. Not this team, but another one. It was the best decision ever made, and we also left under good terms. You have to do what you have to do for your child. Good luck to her.

A mom with two girls in HOCO (older team) said head coach for Mnd 26 was a coach at HOCO who was squeezed out of the program (lots of complaints from the parents/players). Surprised a club like Mnd took him in, guess they’re struggling to find coaches.

So, let me get this straight...you are on here bad mouthing a coach because you lost a game? Am I missing something?

My guess is you will see MG more involved with the team for the rest of the year and going forward.

Usually coaches go the other direction. Hoco doesn’t have much to offer. Their teams will start to lose some as they become more serious about lax. Hoco not a top level club.
