How do the people over AYBL expect the kids to be ready for games this weekend when some have only had one or maybe no practices yet?? Children deserve better, other leagues seem to have it together pretty well, why not this one?

The whole league has been a joke since they added the draft. Kids played harder when they were supporting their school. Not really sure what Buddy Biggs was thinking.

Don't get all worked up. Holy Family has hosted a preseason tournament for years and years, and it's been entirely too early for as long as I remember. Nobody worries too much about it.

The regular season should start the weekend of 12/1 last I heard, so teams will have a few weeks yet of practice to get set for that.

I do wish the boys were on school teams like the girls, but Ashland has an open enrollment policy and kids can go to whichever school the parents choose. I'm not sure what other options they had to get as many kids playing as possible.
As large a school as Oakview is (compared to say, Poage )it wouldn't be totally competitive to have *just* school teams. A lot of good kids from Oakview would never make a team.

I've always said they should pick school teams and then everybody else interested (including those who opted not to try out for school) should go in a draft and some additional teams be created to play in the league with the schools.

If course you might be able to do something like that if the AYBL had an open board with meetings and elections like local little leagues do - fat chance that ever happens!

Thanks buddy. I appreciate knowing what you just said. That's kind of what I was looking for, all though I still think no practices before a game is insane..

I am in contact w the league. Trust me. They haven't practiced once, the league is aware. Most teams have practiced, in churches and so forth because of election time, but there are a few that haven't. Congrats on getting a go getter coach!! lol
