So I head today that even if you have been a coach for years of a team, you have to submit an "application" to the board to continue coaching. The parents won't have the vote anymore the board will now make the final decision! This is BS, the board needs to step back and realize that without the parents and kids there would be no league for them to run. Not so sure I trust them to make the best decision for my kid or his team!

So who picks the Raiders coaches? Aren't 3 board members involved with the Raiders?

Why would the board feel the need to step in on picking coaches? This is ridiculous. Are we voting for new board members and such this year?
Great Idea

I think it is a great Idea.

But what a better idea is to allow an organization to come in and run the league instead of a board.

Worked well for years.

Things change and cleaning up the league is gonna have to start with the board and the coaches having back ground check! I like this idea of the board making the decission and at the same time I think the parents have the right to vote for the board members...starting with a back ground check then go from there!
If I have to go to the next board meeting to voice this I will. Lets all start fresh, if we can!

I thought all coaches & parent reps had to have a back ground check. Is that not true? If you're a board member & a coach does that mean you get to vote yourself in b/c you're on the board? Are new board members getting voted in @ the end of this season?

Anyone who actively participates in the league other than sideline parents and children MUST HAVE a background check before they can volunteer. I just think it is wrong to allow the board to get rid of people who have invested years with the teams and move their friends into that position. I still believe that PARENTS should have the right to say who does or does not coach their child!

It is the Frankfort Youth Football League! Yes, I said YOUTH! Sounds bad when you read all these posts, right? It's a total shame that people can't just let it be for the kids! They have to make drama where ever they can. To me, it just shows how boring their lives are that they have to stir up crap in their KIDS sporting events!! SMDH!

They just took their field sideline complaining to topix. We all know who they are. I feel sorry for their kids. They know very well how good they are or how much they suck. Some of them are ashamed of their parents behavior and false praise of non-existent capabilities. Strangely, those parents whose kids are great don't say much. They just let them play. Those who want to live through their kids make them practice positions they don't even want.

HEck, in the summer I saw a father practice his daughter's pitching arm to death. Sure she could throw hard but 95% was off target. He kept telling everybody how great she is and best pitcher in the league blah blah blah. Think that girl had fun? She knew better. And the other teams laughed about it.

Get the point fyfl parents? Let the kids play. Stay out of it! We'll get to the point where we'll have to force parents not to be coaches on the teams their kids play on. Good luck with that!
