I think a lot of times we as parents just get too worked up about youth sports. Should we demand excellence? Why yes, yes we should. Should we want the child to learn about the sport and learn to love the sport? Absolutely! But, there is a difference in demanding excellence while fostering a love for the game & treating young people like they are playing for a pro or major league team when they are 10. This is my opinion & you know what...well you know what I would say. Don't make me repeat myself. ;)

Hey youth coaches, it's your job to make players love the game & want to come back to play the next year. (and to learn about the game) Let the middle school & high school coaches worry about making players great. Their jobs are actually on the line over wins and losses. I know our local high school coach cares about wins and losses, but what he really cares about is the character of his players. He wants them to become great men, as they learn the game of football. And isn't that what we all want...for our sons to become great men? I know it is in our household.
Hey dads, be those men! You can, I know it!
