What's funny is that you say to "Keep the Kids First". There is only one Signature Team per age group and you expect the Board to just create another because some of these Parents claim they don't like the current Coach of the Sig Team? The Board would NOT let the current Coach remain for this next season if he wasn't qualified. You as Parents have the choice to not have your kid play for him. Coach Tim's job is to put the best team forward out there that comes to try out. If Lopez and those other Parents who are on his team that left truly wanted to put the kids first then Lopez would have joined up with Tim to get the missing girls that belong on there to put the strongest team together for that division to represent LMSA.The BOD needs to make sure that when deciding on issues as heated as the GU10, that they take out of the equation any chance of being called Favoritists.
So for example the Director of Signature needs to note vote, so there is no Bias. If a BOD Member has a child on the team, they can not vote, again avoid Bias. Anything that could be twisted into a Biased vote needs to be considered. This is truly the only way they can make a fair decision that the community cant shoot down.
Always think KIDS FIRST. Do you think it is beneficial for the kids of that Age group to be able to play in a higher level such as signature or should they continue to be the star players in rec. By moving the star players up, you give the opportunities for those that are timid and good skilled to become the leaders and mature. You got that now, except 10 left the LMSA community. so hopefully they can compete, so LMSA does not get egg on the face, for what everyone is saying..the board forced them out.
Anybody disagree, allowing other players to step up in the rec division is a good thing?
That would be putting the kids first. Not taking them to Club when half of them don't belong on a club team. Good luck. I hope your record in fall proves me wrong. Statistically speaking, LMSA may have lost the 10 girls or so but some will be back.
LMSA doesn't force people out. The one left with egg on their faces will be the Coaches who thought they had a team worthy of competing in Club soccer.
BIAS? Nonsense if you ask me. Coach Tim took his Girls to the finals last year and you want to oust him. Now that is FUNNY
