I am completely disgusted watching TCSA basketball, 1st and 2nd grade kids playing and the coach of the best team playing his best kids the entire game when he has 4 subs on the bench and two have not played at all and game is in third quarter. He should be ashamed and the league directors should be removed for allowing horrible rules. How do directors put a rule in that says a kid only has to play one quarter, should all kids at this level not be given equal playing time. This was really pitiful to watch. FYI, I was there watch the good team.

One kid from the 76ers played 4:48 seconds, 1:12 under required time, his team one by 23 point, that is very sad!

Funny how everyone wants to dog the 76ers. Each coach had the opportunity to draft each child. Funny how a coach is so smart that he knows how to coach his team. It's amazing how these players respect their coach on the 76ers. Funny how this coach brings out the best in his players. Funny how this coach works hard in practice with his kids and keeps the parents involved all the way. Funny how everyone wants to steal his defense because they cannot come up with their own. funny how people talk about this coach behind his back and lies to his face. Lets make this clear, if you think TCSA is wrong, leave...no one is keeping you at these games. Go play upward...funny how kids have ADULT HATERS!!!!!! if you don't like it, why don't you coach. No matter what...it is what it is....deal with it.

I guess I should have put my real name instead of Supporter. I am proud of our team. I do not have to hide behind nicknames or any other BS. Man up and if you got a problem, talk it out or walk it out. Point blank.
Don't dog our team or our coach.

It's this way at the 3-4 & 5-6 grade level as well. The refs SUCK this year and allow the kids to have a boxing match without calling the whistle. Dumb, dumb, dumb! its going to take a kid getting hurt before they will blow the whistle. If I wanted my son to box or be in martial arts, I would have signed them up for that!! SWAG out people.

You must have missed my point. I did not dog your team, it is incredible, they play great, no other team is close. My problem is: at that age all kids should get equal playing time, I just could not believe thst in a 1st and 2nd grade league that a kid would sit on the bench until the 2:48 point of the 3rd quarter and then not re-enter until the 2:34 point of 4th quarter.
76ers are good enough that all kids could play equal and still win every game by 15. It is a league problem, but a coach should know better and play kids more. The rule states that each kid shall play one full quarter, that should be 6 full minutes.

A couple of points---First if you want a feel good league, then upward is great for that. Second since you seem to know the rules you also realize that the other team only had 6 players which means their best players did not sit out which also means our kids don't have to sit out. Third-this league is competitive and always has been and if you've been to all the games this year you would definitely know that our subs have played more than any other team in the league. Fourthly-these 2 teams have a little bit of history. Fifthly this coach always has more requests for kids to play on his team(basketball and baseball) than any other coach--reason being because we work with the kids more in practice and teach them individually and try to teach them the game and how to be good citizens(at least the kids who come to practice-we have 1 who never comes to practice-no fault of his own- and therefore gets very little playing time. Lastly if their is a child on the 76's who isn't a better player and person at the end of the season see me and I'll personally give you a full refund of the childs entry fee(at least if they come to practice). Thanks

I understand all the points that you make. I was there to watch 76ers player. You do not address the issue that this particluar child only played 4:48 of the game, by the rules, this child MUST play a minimum of one quarter(6 minutes). This league has always been competitive, but for the first years of this league, coaches had to play kids from a playing schedule, meaning if you had 7 kids at game, you listed those kids 1-7 on roster, first 3 minutes you played 1-5, next 3 minutes you played 2-6 and so on. I guess this was to far and it kept coaches from playing kids equally. Instead, lets only allow some kids to play one quarter. That is pitiful!!

All TCSA Leagues have a playing time requirement. In addition to that requirement, they have an exception for kids who may not be doing the things they need to do to earn that time or are not conditioned or ready to compete. If the kid doesn't show to practice or is continually late, is totally lost and cannot find their way around the field or court or is an accident waiting to happen, the coach has the discretion to limit playing time. This is something the coach has to discuss with a league rep prior to the game so that there are no issues with holding out a kid for competitive reasons. This very well could be the case but if not, you need to talk to the coach to confirm why. If he does not have a valid reason, then you need to discuss it with a league rep. If that doesn't solve the problem then you would go to a director. Topix isn't going to be the place to find resolve.

Not showing up for practices or games is the only reason a child should be limited playing time. This is a "Pay to Play" league.. If a child has paid the fee then that child should receive equal time. As to not finding its way.. Being lost.. Etc.. I remember hearing of a kid who wasn't good enough to play on his middle school basketball team... His name was Michael Jordan. My guess is he too played some ball in a Daddy League and was sat on the bench because he couldn't find his way.. Something to think about.

So many complainers hiding behind the screen. If you have something to say, why hide your name? Sounds a bit cowardly to me. If you don't like how the tcsa is going, take your kid elsewhere. Problem solved

You all should be fortunate that there is a league for your children at that age. No matter how the league is ran there will always be unsatisfied people, mainly parents. Just stay positive with your children.

There is a right and wrong way to handle things in life.. Parents and coaches have kids that play in this league.. These post started with playing time to Insults. Please take all issues to the coaches or commissioner. Posting negative comments on topix is not the answer.

I'm not the one complaining about a league. Re-read my post and maybe you'll figure it out. I'm not calling a team, coach or player out on a public website. Only a coward would make posts such as these about the league. "Hum" is a name huh? Doubtful. Cowards sit at the games and then run their mouth after they leave.

"Pay to Play" means nothing other than you are on the team and if you do what is asked of the coach, are capable of being on the court and are not a danger to yourself or others, you may get a minimum amount of playing time. The other kids on the team paid to play as well and if they are doing everything that is asked of them and they are a productive member of the team, they deserve as much playing time as they can get. In a sense, all players at every amateur level pay to play but that doesn't guarantee playing time. At some point in a person's life they need to learn that rewards are earned. There is no better place to start than at the youth level because it is too late in middle school.
