Ive never had a child on any of the Steger teams.. Do they even have try-outs?<quoted text>
Indeed it was "just the era". It was the era when parents accepted the fact that their angels might not be good at everything, and didn't blame teachers/coaches for their darlings' "shortcomings"
I remember waking up the day of Khoury league try-outs, knowing I was prepared to do my very best.. Also knowing that there was a chance I wouldnt be good enough and not get picked.. Even though I did well and ended up on a team, there where other try-outs for other sports teams that I didnt make.. Sure it hurt some, I was a kid.. But I moved on and it didnt crush my self-esteem in anyway.. Even to this day at 47 years old, I KNOW Im not the best at everything, but I am great at what I can do!!!
