Too many dads controlling the coaches and this organization. Your play/production, definitely doesn't dictate your playing time.

There should be a rate your organization forum on here. It would be great to see which organizations get mostly positive reviews and which get raked over the coals.

So.... Your son got cut? If you're gonna put your kid in select, you owe it to him to do your homework on the club before he has a tryout and gets it in his head he wants to play for them.

How old is your kid again, smart guy ? What do all your years of experience on the matter tell you ?

just look at ALL the TRYOUTS on here for the so-called select teams...it is nothing more then a money grab by a good percentage of these teams. Great idea to have a :lets rank the teams and how things are run........

My years of experience as a parent tell me that if I'm going to fork out big dollars for my kid to play a select sport, then I should research the teams he or she is auditioning for well enough to make sure I'm not making a mistake. Are there other secret skills required to do what's best for my kids that I'm not aware of?

It would be more beneficial to have it broken down by coaches, would it not? Most coaches move up with the same kids, and every organization has good and bad coaches. That's the biggest issue I see with this OP... We have no idea what age level the OP is referring to.

Good call about the coaches. Some of them move around to different organizations and take their brand of ball with them.

Coaches

My only two cents on rating coaches rather than clubs. Great idea because the coaches make the Club. There are very few if any Club that consistently drives home their values and holds the coaches accountable to whatever their "mission statement" is. Parents have to educate themselves as soon as possible when looking at a team, but it's way too easy/lazy to just assume this total stranger who has a baseball hat on is looking out for what's best for their kid. Not going to comment on a single organization, but if you didn't have a good experience a lot of the blame starts with you for not looking out for #1 and that's your kid.

On a side note, not every kid is going to play SS and hit lead off. I know parents struggle when "jonnie" was the all-star on his previous team and they can't wrap their brains around why he isn't now even though his previous team was playing knothole or bronze and now he's playing on a National league team. It's gotta be the coach, right??

The quality of a team is all about the coach. I recommended a club to many for a few years until I realized that the head of the program was a complete azz. Our years of positives were all about the coach, not the club.

This^ a comment, moderator.

I've heard of countless situations where daddy-ball denies kids that were thinking they'd have a fair chance to compete at Jr's chosen position a fair shake. I've seen kids on opposing teams that I knew were better than some little Mr. E6, Jr pushed into the OF. Kids get screwed over after assurances of fair handling of a roster all summer long. Why be an a_hole to this guy ?
