my daughter is about every day of the week 3 sports, already dreading the day it's over because for the most part the parents on her team are all cool and fun to crack crispy boys in the parking lot with.  i guess once this is all over, get back into the k-state tickets maybe idk

Yeah, the parents can either be really fun or nah. 

Past few years the competitive swim and cheer parents have become pretty fun and the good news is they all have pools and have beer parties after meets and practice and I don't have to clean up empty claw cans after I just dip

Just loaded up the soccer schedule into the calendar. #2 in the CF3 kids is v good at soccer, and we had the opportunity to move up from rec league to competitive club level, but are holding off for one more year with that.

Could go in the kids are worth it thread...

#2 is getting married this Friday. Three of his six groomsman are guys he played ball with from grade thru high school.  Two more are college teammates.  The last is his brother.

Keep grinding guys.  I was a way better dad after I started coaching.  I also remember the days when you just had to get to a 1-2 week off season to catch your breath and then go again.

7th grade football team already has 4 concussions. I ask nicname jr how often they work on form tackling and blocking technique. He tells me “we haven’t.”

I’m like wtf? That’s like football coaching 101 at that level. Very young, first-year coach will learn. But he better learn fast.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

We were practicing for 5th grade girls soccer at the same field as a 5th or 6th grade football team. Football practice looks miserable.

This is during games?  Are these first year players?


 We had 1 concussion in 3 years coaching and that one the kid was ankle tackled, fell back, and bounced his head hard off the ground.

Most have been playing for years. There are probably 7-8 new players. My son only started last year, but tells me they worked on form and hit all the time last season.

lil sd is 9 and plays NFL Flag (7 on 7) through the same outfit that we play baseball through. it's MOSTLY a baseball organization but does do some football and some cheer. He's super small for his grade. plays CB mostly. I'm going to support him 100% if he decides to move to tackle (and it'll be whenever his friend/school group makes the move, probably next year) but I'm not looking forward to it. He's a catcher so he's tough AF but I just worry about it.

My baseball playing kid did one year of tackle football in 5th grade and got exposed athletically and it was enough for him to lose interest. I hope the same for you.

Really? I easily hid my lack of athleticism though middle school before hangin' 'em up. You're talking to former QB1 grades 4-8, here. My only real skill was remembering the plays.

School football is so much fun tho. By far the most fun and exhilarating to be a part of as a player.

Nope. average. And given he has my genetics that average is probably the ceiling for speed.

Thats $1,200-$1,400 in bats. Holy crap. I guess they are a little cheaper for younger kids.

I'll say I'm an absolute whore for baseball equipment. Like I realize it's not much of a difference if he's swinging some $ bat v. some $$$$ bat but I just eat that crap up. Catchers gear, bats, gloves, bags, the works. have the team swing 12 different bats in HitTrax and spreadsheet exit velo. I could spend all day at some baseball gear store just checking crap out. My kid likes new gear well enough but doesn't really give a crap if it's some fancy thing or some walmart thing. if it works it works for him. I very much appreciate his attitude on it and pray he stays that way and also very much realize how dorky and cringey it is to overspend on the stuff and watch youtubes and read reviews and crap about it but man I love it.
