Can someone please explain to me what is going on with this organization??? I am hearing contradictory information from different people. I have children that I would like to participate in football but want to understand what is going on before I do. I heard there is a meeting tomorrow at 6:00 at City Hall??? Any information would be appreciated.

Not sure as my children are grown. But you could either call City Hall at six three six twenty five hundred. Or call the chamber at six three six five thousand.

That would be six three six twenty two fifty for city hall.

Do not get involved with this organization.
Many parents are requesting refunds because of the unorganization of this league.

It's mainly the politics, no it is the politics that runs people off. Sad for the kids.

It happens in every town. However, Royse City does need to build their own youth football field. All they need is 120 yards of space that is about 75 yards wide and two goal posts. Throw in two or three dads with riding mowers and there you go. If the parents want to build stands that will hold four or five hundred folks, that would be good, but if not, then mom and dad can bring their lawn chairs and enjoy some Saturday morning pee wee football and let their kids have the time of their lives. By the way, everybody chip in enough to buy one black jersey and one white jersey for every kid in the league. Have those jerseys turned back in at the end of the season and they should be good for three or four years. Same with the equipment. Enough of this with parents having to shell out $300 or more for a uniform and pads just to be sold in a yard sale for pennies. And play these games in the daytime to save on lighting.
Am I wrong or just disgruntled or am I both? lol

I hate it when parents get TO involved in little league games. The point of it all is to give children discipline, work together as a team, and teach good sportsmanship. Something that parents need to pay attention too and learn from. It's not about little Johnny getting all of the play time while his daddy runs the show!! Just like the old saying goes, "Monkey see - monkey do". Just ask your self is the kind of environment that you want your children to grow up in?

I LOVE THIS IDEA!!
It was good for us when we grew up playing for the YMCA when I was little. Pay a fee, pick up your equipment, pick a color, draw the children's names from a fish bowl, go find our own field to practice on and do whatever it took to get in the condition to practice on - and that was it!! Game day you brought your own chairs, parents sat and cheered their childrens TEAM on!!!
I say lets go back to the good old days!! It was good enough for me and it will be good for my children.

I agree with you. Everybody now wants the best uniform, play under the lights of the football stadium, names on the back of the jerseys, the most expensive cleats, an announcer, a big scoreboard and we are just talking about the parents. The kids...they could care less about all of that stuff. When they get to junior high ball, they either have a white jersey or a black jersey and they for sure do not get names on the uniforms. They don't have football banquets until high school. They play on one of the best junior high fields in the entire district though.

I wish the city and the new Mayor would look into taking over all of these leagues and forming the cities own league. There would be only one league, headed up by a paid city employee. There would be a small crew of men to mow and prepare the fields. They could have football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Basketball arrangements would have to be made, but they could use the 'old middle school', I believe it is called Cherry Middle School now. The school by the old football stadium. Parents would have to be screened to coach. If the parents did not turn in the old uniforms they would be fined by the city. I like the fishbowl idea. You could put each grade level in a different bowl and even break it down by the kid's size. First grade 50 pounds and over in one bowl, 49 and under in another. Fifth grade 75 pounds and up in one and 74 and under in another. All games would begin at 8 am Saturday morning and would be complete by 7 pm Saturday afternoon. As many cheerleaders and drill team girls that wanted to be a part could wear T-Shirts and Shorts for uniforms. Refreshments would be up to each family and there would be volunteer clean up crews each week to help pick up trash. I've got it all figured out. Mr. Baley....would you put this on the agenda so our town could get back to the basics and turn the sports back over to the children? This would look very good on your resume'. And please remember, ALL citizens are important including the kids.

To the parents of RCYA,

As the Acting Commissioner of RCYA I would like to say that the meeting on Wednesday, the 20th of May was very interesting. We met with several parents and listened to their concerns. The board sincerely apologizes for all of the confusion and the misleading information. With that being said Rick Bradford has stepped down from Commissioner and Head Coach of the Colt Division Football. Joe East also stepped down as the PR Director.

We as a board voted to not split into two teams at this time and take this year to plan it out carefully for next year. We feel that taking the time is in the best interest for the children and parents. The split must happen so with the parentÂ’s ideas and concerns we can plan this structure out successfully. The Board meets on the first Thursday of every month and these meetings are open to every parent that wants to attend, unless stated with warning that it is a closed meeting by e-mail to the parents.

With the split not happening this year the football teams, Flag, Mustang and Colt, are full with 35 kids on each team. With that being said it will be hard to play all of the kids and have equal playing time. It will be hard but can be done with the help of all coaches and understanding parents.

The board has a full plate this year. There are good people/parents on this board. Please remember that we are all parents and human so have patients with us and we will make this a first class organization once again. We will have a great season this year and years to come.





Sincerely,

Mike Price and the RCYA Board

What about Mayor Baley appointing a Sports Director for the city? I know the Mayor does not have time to run a PeeWee football season, but at least he can get somebody on this. I like the suggestions being made about the city taking over these leagues.

This has nothing to do with the Red Raiders or the Dawgs leagues they are under the RCASA association.The kids deserve a team where they can learn and have fun while playing, not all the organizations or coaches politics! The RCASA is still excepting new players,for cheerleaders needing a team there will be sign ups this Thursday from 6-8 at the Middle School and for football players Sun. May 31 and June 7 at the Middle School from 4 to 6.Lets get theses kids on teams and let them play!

Is this Organization number 3? Let me get this straight. The Red Raiders are apparently in one league that several do not want to be in the same league as the Red Raiders. The Dawgs are in another league and the same case goes for the Dawgs league...nobody wants to be in with the Dawgs either. So RCASA is now or has already been formed? If RCASA is one organization and RCYA is another, then what is the third organizations initials?

Where did this go wrong? What about the kids? Answers....somebody needs to answer for destroying what could have been a fun time for the kids. Parents...this is not about you! The kids just want to put on some football pads and run around on a field. Let them.
Do the parents realize also that the future of our school's programs are going to be affected by what they are doing?
This needs to be stopped now. If it is going to be something drastic, then so be it. Shut down the league for a year. The kids have already been hurt, now with a year to cool off, maybe the parents will realize what their real role is. I am just thoroughly disappointed in the parental actions of these organizations.
