What I mean about the events from the other day, means that when I arrive 10 minutes prior to the practice and the doors are locked, nobody in the parking lot, and a note on the door stating that the gym, which Sport X utilizes the facilities, is closed until January 9th, and finally, another parent with a daughter in front of me came to the same conclusion, should not result in a phone call to my house after we have returned home that was less than understanding of the circumstances. According to the other parents that you mentioned, they stated that you didn't arrive until after 10:00 in the morning. I don't expect my daughter or the team to be at the level of a competition team, but I do expect at a minimum that you are teaching them responsibility. When you have told both parents and girls that they should arrive 10 minutes early to practices to be ready to begin at the set time, I would expect their coach to be there even earlier. After you begin practice late and then want to hold the girls past the end time, causes scheduling conflicts with other parts of everyone's lives. For us, this was not the first example, in my opinion, of your lack of leadership you have displayed and while I am paying your salary, I would expect some professionalism when communicating with the parents and leading by example for the girls. So yes, AB#1 is done as of this past weekend with Sport X. If you need anything further or would like to call, please contact myself in the future.”
So what is up with people lately? Sports should be fun and teach kids the meaning of teamwork and competitive sportsmanship. They shouldn't be so complicated and full of strife. I love when Hubby is coaching AB#2 sports, we have the best time with the parents and everyone is so respectful. I just can't get over the fact that I was paying over $250/month to deal with this shit?
