Why is it that football in the kvyfl isn't about the kids anymore but about the coaches winning? I know one league that offered parents money to bring their kid to their team. They recruit kids from other teams and even try to dig up dirt on other coaches to try and get coaches kicked out of the league. The president of the league is so grimmy he accused another team of having practice already when all they are doing is conditioning the boys and kids from other teams were there as well. He was just mad he wasn't invited to attend. These men need to act like men and quit ruining the sport for these boys. It should be about the kids and not their egos.

Do these midget league players eventually go to GW high school? If so, no big deal. Their players parents get paid too. It really is about 'conditioning', lol!

doesn't the kids have to play for the team in the area they are from? SWVMFL has a good set up where the kids play and great coaches. Maybe they was just having a pre season scrimmage game, nothing wrong with that. Keeping the kids in shape is also good. Eventually they all will be playing for high school as one team. I am involved with swvmfl and we have a good president and Brd members, everyone works together and no one offers money to get other kids out of there area. Coaches are great, win or lose they play hard and all are winners. It is really for and all about the kids.
So messed up

not really, all leagues r not whacked. There are leagues that still put the kids first and all leagues are supposed to be a non profit organization.

Midget league football is so messed up anymore. Chemical Valley lost alot of teams because of a lawyer starting up a new league called Kanawha Valley. They only took in 11 teams and wont allow any more in. Its a mess. I know my kids have stopped playing football and baseball because of the politics involved. What it comes down to is this, Parents should not be allowed to coach their own children. It is to personal. They make sure their child is up front always on the field etc even if they arent that good. Kids who deserve the position dont get a chance cause their daddy isnt the coach.

Kanawha Valley needs to let the other teams in and make it like it use to be. Have three divisions A, AA, and AAA, but they all play each other. Adults need to grow up and let the kids play cuz they will play each other in high school anyways. Parents need to stop coaching just so their kids can play YOUR NOT TEACHING THEM ANYTHING BY DOING THAT. If your kid isn't good enough to start without you coaching them then maybe you should put some extra work in at home.

In a perfect world that would work but Youth Football or almost all youth sports is all volunteer as far as coaches go. So if you tell people they can't coach their kids teams you will see all those volunteers go bye bye and then you have no league.

we have a problem with KVYFL and the other league on the Marmet side of the river. We have kids that want to play but for the league they are supposed to play in there is some wrong doing with the money and it is hurting the franchise. i have heard of another league trying to start up but the KVYFL wont get back in touch with us. and yes it is a group of concerned parents. Even the other league in Marmet wont even allow us to join their league and they have 5 teams i think. its a shame that these grown men cant see what they are doing to the athletics in the area. i am a member of about 30 parents who are looking for a league to join. if not we will have about 35 to 40 kids set out because they will not go back to the league they were in because of the funds disappearing. please help these kids find somewhere to play. it is about the kids.

Paul, or art, or whoever you want to call yourself. Nobody wants a known lair into third league. The team you speak of had no money stolen but you decided to get all pissed off after you weren't voted president because everyone saw through your lies. Grow up and go back to that other league and pray they let you back in...
