I understand what you are saying Dave. My question is though, what does the required $15.00 per participated sport (per player) go towards? Like I said before, I have no problem supporting these kids! I just don't agree with the coaches putting an amount of how much the kids "have to sell" or having a fundrasier BEFORE the teams have been established!!
On another note, I learned today that 4 girls got cut from the volley ball team. Is it worth putting them through the let down and embarrassment if only 4 girls get cut??? Can't these girls just "fill in" somewhere on one of the levels, JV maybe ? It is my understanding that there is a "no cut" policy at the Freshman level - however; 4 Freshman were moved up to JV and the other potential JV players were cut!! This is NOT right!! If the team is having a great game and ahead, let them play. Let them practice with the team, it's the only way they can "learn" to improve their skills!!! Heck in pro-football if a team is ahead by alot, sometimes you'll see them putting their 3rd string in for goodness sakes!!! I just don't see the point of having to "cut" just 4 girls from volleyball because their not as good as the other team mates. I could see maybe having to cut 8 or more...but 4????
These 4 girls obviously had a liking of the sport now these coaches have destroyed that ...nothing like destroying a childs self esteem!!!
