    My niece that I posted a picture of with Chunky when I first joined was really good at softball but once she got into cheer and gymnastics it was forgotten about.
    DON'T even get me started... my kids are not into sports now, but when they were younger they both played soccer, t-ball, and swim. I ended up volunteering to coach many of their sports activities (or team mom) because SO many parents couldn't be bothered w/it. What a frigging nightmare w/the damn parents... they would either freak out that you weren't playing their "star" kids every second or that you would let every kid who signed up play. I had it out w/several parents that if they wanted their kid to play continuously then they need to sign up for travel teams and not the local ones.

    Travel baseball is where the kids who's parents help the coaches financially the most get to play while other kids who are better sit on the bench. Luckily I know the coaches and played ball with them growing up that two of my nephews play for and the other nephews dad coaches. They are all really good and put in the time at home with the correct instructions to learn how to hit, catch and throw. I hope they continue to excel at whatever sport they choose to focus on by the time they reach high school since you need to be a one sport player around here these days since sports last year round now with practice and 2 or 3 seasons of play. Only 1 or 2 of my nephews will stick with baseball. The one was born to play football and his size and strength will help him as long as he stays healthy.

    My two favorites and I know I shouldn't say that have both graduated from high school and one is out of college so I am getting into the younger generations sports now. Both my nephew who just graduated last year and my 24 year old cousin had scholarships to play in college and decided to forget sports and focus on school.


    My brother and nieces husband both quit being a head coach because parents didn't like them because they wouldn't play any kids unless they were good enough to play.

    My nephews as I call them that I am watching now are actually my great nephews who's moms "my nieces" are just a few years younger than I am

    I did the "team parent" thing once, years back, can't say I'd do it again, but that was for a different sport - for my oldest. I'm so excited to see the twins play a sport…Six years ago we didn't even think they'd live, so to watch them now is *no words* We take nothing they do for granted…they could breathe a certain way and it would be praised.

    That's why any parent that complains or gets competitive won't phase me in the slightest…My husband and I know just how lucky we are that they are just here. Of course, if a parent messes w/my kid instead of their own…then my tune shall change swiftly!!
