Chances are the team is already set. They've been playing together since travel ball in elementary. It is hard to crack into the baseball team.

I have seen several kids with talent tryout and make the team at the older levels.(in the past, my son tried out and made it and played.) You may want to call the athletic director. In the past, current players have had off season conditioning if they are not presently in another sport and are probably having workouts after school. Good Luck to you and your son. They have a new coach this year so I am sure it will be different. I would think it would be a good season to bring new kids on board. You may want to check out the high school baseball field after school returns. If you see alot of pick up trucks around the field they are out there working out and taking batting practice. Good Luck Coffee Baseball Team. They have some great players now and I am sure they would welcome new talent. Take Care. Sure hope they have a great season. Those kids work real hard. Hope things go great for your son! It has been a while since my son played but I hope this helps.

Hey if your boy doesn't make the team and wants to play, he can go to CCA and play there. They are only a few years removed from winning the State Championship and are always looking for quality players. Yea, it isn't Coffee High, but there are only about 15-20 that play on the varsity each year which means that there are a lot of guys not playing that could be. Not everyone is good enough to play at CHS. Just an option to throw out there.
not so happy

no freshman team this year. Just a varisty and JV so 9th graders SORRY. In Middle school heard they are having an A team and a B team. So probably only 8th graders will get to play.

Ok thanks everyone for the info. My husband says Coffee sports is all messed up and have always been. My son tried out for basketball last year but really to work on some skills and they told him that and said basically he needed to lose weight. He played on the little local traveling team and got a lot better. He spent the whole next year working out, losing weight and got MUCH better. This year he tried out and got told my the coach he was guaranteed to be on the team. A week later he was told he NEEDED TO GAIN WEIGHT! and let go. SO he lost weight and built muscle to try out this year and told he needs to gain weight. And he has As Bs but more than half of whose on the basketball team are NOT passing even though they were told they would not be allowed to play if there grades were not good.
The sports issues along with other issues we have with the school system as a whole is why we've started talking about moving out of the county.

They have a basketball team at CCA too. You won't have to go through all the hassle of trying to sell your house, find a new house in a new county along with jobs, etc. Just an idea.

They have a basketball team at CCA too. That would be alot simpler solution than having to try and sell your house in this economy, find another house in another town and find new jobs if you don't want to have to commute from one town to another everyday for work. Just an idea.

If you think it's worth moving so your precious little jocks can play a game you need some perspective.
Worry about their education so they can get out of this backward ass city.

Hermes,
If you have such distain for this city, then why in the Sam Hill are you still here? There are plenty of other places you can choose to live. Please find one you'd be happy with and go there. If for nothing else, for your own mental health.

But playing sports is an education in of itself and can lead to a meaningful career as a productive member of society. And I don't mean a career only as a player, but there are a number of jobs associated with athletics like coaching, scouting, recruiting, etc. How many people do you know that are involved with athletics as their career who didn't play the sport they are working in? To my knowledge, next to none and I've been involved in athletics for more than 30 years all over the country. By playing a sport, you LEARN the sport, thus, athletes are getting an education via OJT. Athletics are a huge and important part of our society, so you are in the very small minority of those that hold distain for sports.

But let me ask you this: If your child was interested and had ability in music, art or theatre and the school they attended didn't offer them an avenue to pursue their interests, you would just tell them "tough luck"? You wouldn't look at different options for them? That's all this parent is doing. Athletics isn't your cup of tea, and that's fine, but to demean others who do have an interest in that shows a lack of maturity on your part. Not to mention the fact that what a parent thinks is in the best interest of their child is of no concern of yours.

Sport does play an important role in the development of kids. It teaches team work, social interaction, physical fitness, rules, how to follow rules, why we follow rules, discipline, and determination. I do not think sports trumps school work, as school work is the basis of our work in our communities.

Exactly. Teamwork, social interaction, fitness, rules, how to follow rules and why we follow rules, discipline and determination have absolutely nothing to do with the basis of work in our community. Said no local employer ever. Jeez...

No you sad soul...You NEED some perspective. When children are active in school activities they are less likely to become drug dealers, thieves, use drugs etc. Look it up there are numerous reports from research to prove it. Also it instills a lot of values into a child that I want all my children to have. I would say you were never involved in anything in school and you are also the one at work (if you have a job) that cannot work with others because you did not learn the value of teamwork as a child.
AND if you would take your head out of your *ss you would know that one way to get out of this town is by playing sports and receiving a scholarship to a good college. My son is only 14 years old and in 9th grade and even last night ha had me researching college's admission requirements as well as occupations he's interested in. AND if you would have actually READ the post you would also see my son has A's and B's which is one of the reasons he should have the privilege of playing on a sports team. So please sir, take your negative comments and shove them up your a**(that is, if you listened and took your head out).

EXACTLY! I see someone else here is intelligent, does their research and doesn't sit on Topix all day.
