This is pathetic:
If I EVER hear of my kid behaving like that, he’s off the team, maybe permanently.
My kid has played on some good teams. And, he’s played on some bad teams. Coaching the winning teams is easy. Coaching the losing teams is hard. But, it’s the losing teams where sportsmanship is learned the most. Kids have to learn to deal with keeping their heads up and facing adversity straight in the eyes. And, every once in a blue moon, they overcome that adversity and pull off the upset. These girls are learning to take a dive and hope for third best rather than take that chance at being #1. That just sucks. The Riverdale coach is Cory Barrett. The Smyrna coach is Shawn Middleton. These two have no reason to be coaching any more.
