I think that the person who is in charge of all sport networks should work with each group, set the expectations to people are not left guessing and keep the parents out of it, some parents lie and stick their nose in it where it doesn't belong, this person should also talk to other schools and see how their sports events are ran and get some great ideals and suggestions instead of running so many sports programs with a deaf ear and a blind eye if you want the kids to be good they have to be given the necessary tools to do so, you can't hire a basketball coach and expect the team to win the region if he hasn't never played the sport, same goes for basketball, tennis, cheerleading and any other sport there is

The most proficient kids should get the majority of the playing time period. That is the reason sports teams have tryouts and make roster cuts. I bet if you were the coach of the Chicago Bulls in the 90's, you would never have benched Michael Jordan to be fair to everyone. It is just like with a job opening, you hire the most qualified to fill the position. Sports are not charities that try to make everyone feel warm and cozy inside. If your kid didn't play, maybe he or she wasn't as skilled as the other kids. That isn't a knock on your child at all. We all have our own station in life and we all can't be star athletes. I understand that money can be an issue when it comes to things like this, but it is no excuse either.

Cheer parent, I did say that I wasn't talking necessarily talking about Lee County. I actually was talking about another school when it came to the cost of uniforms and gymnastics. From the sound of it Lee County is doing a great job trying to see that all the kids have a chance to compete in sports.
when it comes to helping these girls the school has made sure they do it the cheapiest way possible which shows how little they care if this team was making headlines like it used to twenty years ago they would help more

Lee County Youth Sports have always been run by parents and their cash since it is a parent driven group meaning...you must have a child playing to be on the board and of course parents have to contribut to the program by paying for the opportunity to play an organized sport with proper facilities, referees and uniforms....HEY, there is no FREE lunch you bunch of lazy bums.

All I have have to say is, if you don't bleed the true color of your team, you are gonna sit the bench. Guys, these players that get to play all the time are the ones that show up to every practice, the one first ones in the door and the last ones out. They have to love the sport and be willing to sacrifice a lot. That's whats wrong with the world now, to many things are handed to people.
I must say, I was a parent of a Lee County Bobcat player and never did I ever open my wallet and pull out the first bill. My child never missed a practice and gave 110% at all times and that is why he got to play.
Grow up adults, that is why your children act the way they do!!

Obviously, you are the parent of a male if you never had to reach into your wallet to pay for your kid to play sports. This includes camps,jock straps, socks,before and after the game meal, etc., but am hearing those practices are in the past. OBTW what happened to the other youth sports thread, get a little too hot in the judge's kitchen?
