The sad part is, the kids know they deserve the verbal dressing down.
But parents don't want their kid's feelings hurt. Parents are what is wrong with youth sports.
The kids need to take pride in what they are doing and execute. Or move along and try softball.
The coach knows what they are talking about. They see your kid in practice every day.

WOw! You are talking about 27s! Coach’s DONT always know what they are talking about fool!!! You sound like you got hit in the head with a softball! You are what is wrong in youth sports

No, the helicopter parents who want to wrap their kids in bubble wrap are what's killing sports.

Parents know what is best for their kids- even if they've never played the sport or never watch practice ad see their kids giving lackluster effort most of the time.

"Don't hurt my kid's feelings! They are a precious gift!"

So many parents have created a generation of soft kids who expect their mom or dad to swoop in and talk to the coach or find their kid another team...if the going gets tough.

Perseverance. Toughness. Discipline. Loyalty. They are all unfortunately the exception, not the rule, in today's club sports world.

100% truth! I'm sure not many will like hearing this but this is reality.

Agree. This is why we have all the club jumpers and parent jockeying for position each year at tryout time. The kids dont show any loyalty to the clubs because their parents answer is to just find a new Club with “better opportunities.”

Regarding SW 27, there is a difference between tough feedback and personal attacks. What I saw I Lax for the Cure after the SJ Select games, was clearly in the latter category.

Also, a complete failure by the club leadership for not moving their 27 blue out of A+ division and allow them to win some games and get some confidence.

The McLaughlin's have been doing this for years. This isn't new to this team. Every team to ever play for SW has been told they are an embarrassment to the program at some point over the years. Some people are ok with the verbal abuse thrown at their kids and some aren't. At least I think Mike stopped making all the girls give him a hug at the end of practice after he berated them for 90 minutes.

Remember loyalty goes both ways. When coaches tell kids, "play like that you wont be on the team next year", its no wonder parents and kids start to look around. Also, when club owners have mid-season tryouts for potential new tryouts, loyalty is pretty much gone.

Serious question, don’t you expect the club to take the best players?

If so, why wouldn’t you expect the player to pick the best club for themselves?

This is a 2 way street.

Exactly.
The kid owes it to themself to find the best fit. That kid will get cut if another kid comes in who is better.

Why should kids show loyalty to a club when the club has no loyalty to the kids? You think the moment a better player comes around a club won’t cut your kid?

There is a HUGE difference between telling kids what they are doing wrong, and degrading them. A coach can get the point across that the team needs to work harder/do better/etc without treating the girls on the team like person. If you can’t see the difference and are ok with a coach treating your kid like this, then I feel sorry for your kid. I can only imagine how you treat her in private.

Skywalker’s coach’s all scream at their teams, it comes from the top. Even the teams that are ranked high receive this treatment.

Why should kids show loyalty to a club when the club has no loyalty to the kids? You think the moment a better player comes around a club won’t cut your kid?

Of course clubs will cut kids. Why shouldn't they, unless they are True? No sense in dealing with kids who don't want to work.

How many kids think that they are "club lacrosse material" when they are really rec-level?

How many kids play club lacrosse that never hit a wall? Never run in the offseason? Miss lacrosse practices for indoor soccer games? Think that every kid deserves equal playing time?

Those kids aren't club players. They are rec players who THINK they are club players.

Its the same thinking that "Everyone should have a college degree." College isn't for everyone.

Neither is club lacrosse. But we have lots of parents patting their kids on the head, maneuvering so their daughter doesn't have to realize they aren't cut out for club.

Skywalkers has stunk at the younger ages for the longest time. They don't get better until they have their secret tryouts and clinics and bring in 30 kids from out of state to play on their team. They also don't really develop talent. They wait for girls to move on from Copperine, NEMs, etc for the college recruiting years.
