Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

My children played soccer - and loved it! My granddaughters play soccer - and love it! St. LouisRead More continually calls itself one of the "Soccer Beds" of the country. Sadly, the long term support for professional soccer has a tough track record in this market. Hopefully, the young soccer players will encourage their parents to take them to the games at the Arena. Wishing Daryl Doran the best...Hope that the owners are ready to open their pockets to success!
