If there is one thing that I have leaned about Estill Co. school basketball, is if you are not in the click, your child will suffer.

These parents that you mentioned are the ones that suck a$$ so their child will benefit on the court.

I find it hilarious how some of these parents act.

I agree. They suck up to all the coaches act like they are friends but they are using them thinking their son will play

If you want your child to play send them to Jimmy
Bonnys church. He runs the whole show. He plays whoever he wants whenever he wants and on whichever team he wants.
Here is one

My kid is blessed with pure, raw talent. if not for that, would be sitting on the bench 3/4 of the time. I am not one of the parents that suck the coaches a$$ to help my kid. Even still, I can see favoritism overriding talent every game & every practice.I have faith tho, that hard work, & the raw talent will shine thru!!!

I had one parent tell me this week that some of those kids never get to play that is so unfair!
So they should let them play even if they are no good? That's the way to encourage mediocracy in Estill Co sports!! Do u still get an award at work, even if u r the worst employee? Maybe the parents of the kids not getting PT should simply tell their kids that they are not very good right now and encourage them to work harder at their goal. There's a role for every player on a team even if they are "riding the pine!"

Isn't that what Head Coaches do? Or am I missing something?

At some point you need to play them to develop their skills. When coaches don't develop skil
Ls you end up with mediocre teams at higher levels, just like we have now. That goes for al
L sports.

Yes they all should get to play you dumbass they are little kids NOONE really cares if they are good it is for fun! Stop acting like it is professional ball it is suppose to be fun for those little kids and we really don't give a shit if your kid can play he is still not any better than the rest of those kids! Maybe if they let the other kids play they can get better how in the hell can they get better if they never get to play get over your frigging self if it was your kid not getting to play then you would be acting like a bitch!i can probably name the ones that get to play and I don't even have any kids that play and I don't go to the games lets see, the little Isfort boy , Ryan Coopers kids , Dana Arvin's kid, Kaden Hardy , Steve Brewers kid , oh and I know a lot more I am sure yours is also probably one that I know because they are the same ones that kiss ass at the baseball field too I know because I see it well for your information you parents need to grow up and stop acting like kids yourself ,my nephew plays ball but we tell him he does good as long as he does the best he can he doesn't have to be perfect it is for fun we are not making money on it! So yes every single child should get to play!

Only the kids that put forth the effort to get better should be playing and only the coach know which ones are doing that if they have closed practices.
I wish that I could tell you that if your kid has the talent and works really hard he will get the playing time that he deserves but the fact is that starting in middle school and getting worse in high school it really depends on who you are and if you have family that is in the school system or has played ball before.
The kids that I just decribe who mom or dad work as teachers or priciples gfet to play through there mistakes and get to play even if they are not as good as other kids .
Its a fact of life and its not only Estill county but every where
