How do you build a super team in little league. Don’t most towns have drafts where the players are chosen and therefore the talent gets spread around?
My town has a draft, however there are multiple dad coaches on stacked teams, in many cases, dad coaches start coaching a year before their kids are eligible to ensure he gets on the right team, listed coaches automatically get to draft their kids. There are 4or5 hot teams.
Town sports are the worst. In every town the coaches kids or the league officials kids get opportunities they don’t deserve and because of that people are flocking to club sports where playing time and opportunities are based off ability.
If Dads aren't coaching many of these teams there is no one to do it. Can someone explain why it's wrong to coach your own kid. I have no problem putting my kid on the bench when he's not cutting it. I know that's not the norm, but there are a lot of fathers out there that coach for the right reasons. And often times the coaches kid(s) are some of the better players on the team, that's a fact.
no problem with Dad coaches, most are very good, better than I. Just put some rules in place and have an honest draft, limit coaches to 3 per team. spread the wealth.
Music is not in our blood. We'll just have to play better this year against those stacked teams, just hired a great personal coach for our younger aged Majors.
Now let’s talk about the Williamsport teams and how disgusting it is when the coaches kids who could not hit water if they fell out of a boat seem to make those teams.
