Uhmmm, ya, mind yo business. You sound like a Karen
Ummmm did I hit a nerve?
uhmmm No, no nerve hitting...My kid has his contract. You're neighbors must hate you..MIND YO BUSINESS
Maybe you don't know what a real Karen is like, or you've been butt hurt that you were outed as one before. Karens go screaming and raging and demanding whereas I asked a simple question. The kid will be a peewee, he doesn't dominate in any way at the platinum level and I don't know if the coach of the elite team has even given him a second thought. No call ups that I know about. I like the parents, my kid is friends with the player and I see this as a big mistake. Of course it sounds like I'm jealous and that's why I don't want to say anything. Why pull your kid away from friends if there's no need to? I see them not even getting a whiff at that team and leaving to go somewhere else, getting cut there too and ending up on some other team when they could have stayed and Joey would have been happy.
So, the kid is a peewee, and I'll make the assumption he's been at a higher club level since Mites and the parents understand the annual process. If you and others on the team have leveraged your friendship and relationships to have honest conversations about Johnny's development and skill and they still aren't buying it, nothing will change their mind. Best bet is to recommend they don't burn their bridges with the org on their way out and let them see if the grass really is greener elsewhere.
Just...why? Seriously, why are you worried about what anyone's kid is doing but your own?
A couple of thoughts.
One, every parent thinks their kid is much better than they really are, not matter how hard they try to be honest.
Next, people will move around every year, get used to it. This is just the beginning, so let them do what they want.
If you are close and want them to stay, then tell them that, but never evaluate a player to their parents.
How about this, tell the parents you wish them good luck, you will miss them, and your own kid isn’t ready to move up yet.
must be an asst coaches kid?
The kid is a stud. Move on up
So, in your own words ...you would rather mind your business ....but you came here to the dboard to be told that? Perhaps it's time to find some friends to talk to
