37% of hs kids don't want parents at games...

Recommended Posts

Youth sports is out of control on many levels (including the parents).  If I had a dollar for every parent that told me their 3rd or 4th grade daughter was a division 1 recruit in basketball/volleyball/softball/soccer, I could retire years ahead of schedule.  How many of these sports prodigies I watched grow up have gone on to play D1 in their sport?  Exactly ONE. Most dropped out of the sport by the time they reached HS, or reality slapped them when the best they could do in recruiting was NAIA, and they are sitting on the bench in college now.  If your goal is to have college paid for and you don't care about what level you play at, then by all means take advantage of the NAIA, but don't tell me your kid was considered a D1 level talent at 10 years old.  And they were serious!
