"Only way to show LIJSL
is to unfortunately go out and beat teams 10 or 15-0. Sucks for both coaches, teams and players but LIJSL
really screwed up with some of these alignments."
You are an absolute moron. I coach a much older kid playing premier...I've seen a lot over the years, been through almost every scenario. Maybe some of us fellow U10 coaches have, too. And year after year there are people like you who just don't get it. You think it's all about winning. I can safely say that after all of these years, playing at the level we are, it is NOT about winning. It's about development in a fun, safe and happy environment. That may sound cliche and full of rainbows and sunshine, but the are children. Not "little boy warriors" going off to battle like so many of us parents unfortunately believe. They are young kids...athletes. Who want to play a great sport without someone like you mucking it up. Any coach worth anything will know how to tactfully win a game without blowing the score or embarrassing the competition by playing keepaway, etc. I you think the answer is to crush another team to make a point to the LIJSL
then lock yourself away for the next 10 years because we don't need your kind on the youth soccer field. You ruin it for the kids. I can only imagine what other words of coaching wisdom you'd say...save it. You're an idiot.
A little harsh on the newbie don't you think. Some of these posts are by new young , 1st child parents. you were in his/her shoes once. Educate dont berate them otherwise this thread turns into the bashing BS on most others. Think about it thankyou have a nice day
