agree 100% on the awards point. give it a minute and these dboard neanderthals will post something negative about awards. Best advice is to reach out to him about attending a practice. get a feel for his practice and if your son fits in, best of luck
If you don't want to attract criticism or skepticism to your coach (and you don't), avoid posting specific names. Be smart people, especially if you really do have a great coach leading your kid's team. Don't f--k it up. Poster is either stupid or trying to get someone to say something bad about his kid's coach.
My son's coach was a great player and is an outstanding coach, but no way I'm putting his name out here. There's no hard and fast rule about great players translating to great coaches (or not). It's case-by-case, so do your homework.
This is so trivial..if you are interested in a team or coach call up and shadow at one of their practices! That's all there is to it.
