What a rotten f'ed up league this is. you have kids like 15 yrs old in 7th and 8th grade dominating and showing off making moves against 11 and 12 yrs old. Half the teams have half the kids show up. The teams look different every week. the refs suck. you have that dude from Whitesboro coaching who sucks and is a maniac and all those rotten coaches from rome and wherever. That is the most unorganized fu ked up league ever!!!!!
My kid went twice and f that!!!! He is 9 and getting wowed by 11 and 12 yr old punks who cant pass a third grade English test.

The Rome summer league is always unorganized. The schedule is always screwed up, nobody ever there to do the book/clock, refs just there for $30, coaches come when/if they want. Different age groups play together, cuz kids don't show up But here's the question that I pose, if all these kids weren't playing basketball would you be complaining that there's never anything for the kids in this area to do? Think about that.

Basketball Mom, there are better places to advertise a youth program than Topix. Check the Rome Facebook groups. The trolls don't post there because they have to use their real names and then ... well ... they couldn't be trolls without overwhelming public denunciation. They prefer to hide behind their cowardly aliases here on topix.

Is it the leagues fault, when kids dont show up? They have to adjust, and allow other kids to play, but its not their fault kids either just dont show, or have baseball. Most of the refs who ref these games, ref all of the leagues, and are no worse now than they were earlier in the year. Its not just this summer league! If you think you can do better, offer some help to make it better then! Your complaining, with no action, doesnt help one kid!

Yeah, but complaining is a lot easier than pitching in to improve things.

It's one of the catch 22s where nothing needs improving but everything needs improving. It's summer. Some kids are always going to be there. Some aren't always going to make it. Some kids have families that travel. Some kids have families that won't transport them to RFA gym. Some coaches will always be there. Some will be gone doing summer activities with their families. Could it be better. YES. But could it be worse. YES. Just be glad there's things being set up for the kids to do. You want to help call Medicis. He doesn't like suggestions but it's worth a shot.

Don't have the league. The best players (athletes) are playing baseball still. the other kids who just play for fun show up shouldn't be there. The teams should be good, not ny mills kids who cant play at all. Get b p, it will make their kid look good

If you don't like the league you have 2 choices , either help out to make it better or don't have your child participate. You have 2 major players who run the basketball programs inthis town. Both have families and small children at home yet they both spend a good amount of time investing in the children of this town with very little appriciation for it. They do all of this on their own time. Ppl run their mouths about both basketball organizations and critisize but will not step up to the plate. If there were no programs you would complain about that too. I say thank you to ANYONE who is willing to invest their own time in to the children. It is much appriciated by some. Now as far as your 9 year old, the leagues youngest group is 5th and 6th grade so ifhe is 9 he is going to be younger than everyone there. 5th and 6th graders are usually around 10 or 11. There may be some 12 year olds but not many. Stop babying the kid if he is playing kids a little older and more skilled it will helphim develope.

Medicis seems to have no issues getting suggestions from me. And the only thing I would argue, is about coaches being gone for activities. If you cant commit 100%, in my view, then you shouldn't do it, period. The kids need to see commitment from their coach, if the coach expects to get commitment from them!
