    OK, between coaches, officials, parents, kids, rules, schools, steroids, creotine, Andro, HGH, wood bats, metal bats, composite bats, travel teams, elite teams, school teams, town teams, club teams, boys teams, girls teams, co-ed teams, fighting fans, fighting players, fighting coaches, sponsorships, showcases, open tryouts, closed tryouts, favoritism, nepotism, marxism, or what have you…there is one thing we can all agree on. There is plenty wrong with the world of youth sports.

    Here’s my challenge to you. Instead of all of us complaining about it, it’s time for everyone to put up or shut up.

    I want to hear from you about what the most pressing issues are, some examples of your favorite horror stories and more importantly, some suggestions as to how these situations can and should be handled.

    I’m getting tired of seeing hundreds of you coming to the site to check out what’s going on but not getting yourselves involved. This is part of the problem. We need people to step up.

    So ask yourself this…if there’s a bar fight going on, are you the type to stand against the wall and throw a bottle in or are you the type to get in there and mix it up a bit for a good cause.

    There’s at least one thing bothering each and every one of us…it’s time to start the healing and let it out.

I love most sports and think sports are great for kids. Maybe its just my house but it seems the sports activities often take priority over more important stuff, like school
