Youth sports participation involves a large
number of individuals in the United States. The competition level is
very competitive at the youngest of ages. Organizing and running
successful youth sport leagues is a daunting task. Surveys show that
kids participate in sports to have fun, be with friends and learn.

thing. With all of the millions of dollars professional athletes are
paid it is no wonder mom and dad want their son or daughter to be the
best at everything. How would you handle the following scenario?

thousands of kids participating. You count on parental involvement to
coach your teams, but you continue to have verbal abuse problems with
parents towards the referees, opposing team’s parents, and even children playing against their team. Outline your policy for dealing with these parents and their child.
