I think that it is about time for someone to step up and get involved and be dedicated to our upcoming youths. Get those assholes out who like to pad their wallets and put some money into a youth sports program. The State has come in and done some arranging( Mr. Land ) parents get with the program and do something. I graduated from Lee and I have my children in Breathitts program. Its so easy to take time and teach these young athletes the fundamentals. Schedule ball games through the summer and let them get experience. Breathitt has a lot of politics in their system though, try to leave that out. If a player is scoring points leave them out there, don't take them out of the game and put in the mayor's kid or something like that. I would love to see Lee County take the next step. Give me a job and I'll do it.

We were disappointed the 5-8 basketball season was so short. The kids would love to play more. I assume lack of places to host games has something to do with it since games for 8-12 need to start. My husband would love to help with basketball camps! I like the youth sports leadership now. A few years ago it was really political it seemed.

There is always games going on in Breathitt. Actuall Lee canceled a lot of games over the summer. They were supposed to come to Breathitt and play in Wolfe Co. also. I wish you all the best of luck and I'm sure that between the schools and there can be a place to hold games. Get the Superintendant to let loose of the gym keys and let them play some b-all. It doesn't cost money it just time and dedication. Perry County Central has an 8-grader that is awsome, he starts on the high school level and plays the whole game. We can give our children the same opportunities if we put in the time. Who is over the youth sports?

Here you have to be in somebody's church to be a part of anything or you can't be a part of anything. What if you don't feel the need to go to any particular church? I really don't think religion should be forced down my throat or anyone elses just so my kids and every one elses should get to play.

I also don't understand why every thing regarding sports has to start during the beginning of winter. Alot of people couldn't show up to games or practices because of weather, my thoughts were -"how dumb was this to schedule when weather was going to be difficult?"

I surely do feel your pain parents of children of Lee who realize the need for a quality Youth Sports program. Please look at the thread High School and under this name, I have posted comments about this situation and be sure to read the responses. I just don't want to re-hash my comments here. Good luck parents.

I don't know why belonging to a church was brought into this because I do not and my children were playing just as much as other children. I think what may be a problem is locations to practice/play at. I'm not sure if funding allows or may in the future,but there really needs to be a gym at the LCYS ball field. That,to me, would solve a lot of problems. I know LCYS has cheerleaders,but I never see them cheering. Just every now & then. I'm wondering do they have to pay to cheer? If so is it the same amount as for basketball?

wish folks would get as worked up about academics as sports around here. Academics will get you a job! sports are fine a fun way to pass the time and stay in shape but your smarts will take you further in life. brains are the ultimate workout needed!

Hey Tony your a dumbass, I dedicate all of my spare time to both of my children which play basketball year round, baseball,soccer and cheer. Thats what it takes. If were at home were doing workouts or on out own court. To you balance, I don't have a lot of money so I hoping for some paid tuition for my kids. I not hoping for a division 1 scholorship, but a division 2 would be awsome or a partial. There is some good junior colleges out there also. Just hoping that sports keep my kids too busy to do drugs and get into all of that crap. Yes there are drugs in sports, just hope that paranting keeps them straight.

Academics can give you as good a scholarship as sports in this area. As a matter of fact you can get more and better scholarships for academics than sports if you live in this poor area. By that I mean Lee, Owsley, WOlfe, Menifee, Magoffin counties etc... But you are right sports will help them to have something to occupy thier time and hopefully with good parenting they will stay away from drugs. But if your child excells in academics only and you are a good parent you will have the same result. I know of a lot of families that didn't particpate in sports and yet their children all attended college or obtained jobs such as federal jobs and remain drug free to this day.

Remebering don't go knocking the schools as they used to be even worse than they are now. It is all up to the parents and the children to make the most of what is offered.

Lcys cheerleaders do not have any consistent schedules, in part because of concern mentioned above, no practice facilities. The HS cheerleaders get first available practice area, 2nd to every basketball team youth and middle and high teams together. This is combination of lack of communication makes it frustrating to say the least. Also, YES they had to pay to cheer plus purchase all their uniforms, accessories, everything! Its a lot of money and confusion and frustration for the parents who want to help and are told they can't for unknown reasons as well as the girls who just want to learn, cheer, and have fun! Leave the politics out of it and let's come together for out youth to have a better future!
