Meet The Lunatics Who Run Your Kids' Sports Leagues

A Coach Dad's Take On The Wacky World Of Youth Sports
Authored by Jack Malley

There are approximately 40 million kids currently playing organized sports in the United States. While most of them play the games for fun, many of their parents have a win at all costs mentality. Dad coaches scream at their children when they boot grounders, parents blow thousands of dollars on personal trainers for their little athletes, and mothers yell insults at players on opposing teams.

Such parents deserve a good mocking, and "Meet the Lunatics Who Run Your Kids' Sports Leagues" does just that in a fun way that will cause parents to laugh at their own over the top behavior. The author, Jack Malley, a long time dad coach, acknowledges that he has also lost sight of reality on occasion while coaching his kids' teams, and provides humorous personal anecdotes from his many years in the kids sports scene. In addition, Jack gives readers the scoop on the dicey issues that sports parents inevitably face including coach nepotism, travel team elitism, "other parent" conflicts, early specialization, the political correctness that pervades youth sports, and the high school revisited culture that tends to emerge in the sports parent mentality.

"Meet the Lunatics Who Run Your Kids' Sports Leagues" provides a light hearted look at the kids sports environment, and at the same time alerts the reader to real issues that youth sports administrators must address. For this reason, Jack Malley's take on the wacky world of kids sports is a must read for anybody with even a passing interest in the youth sports "scene".

To the dope that posted this about their own kid, you need to come to grips with reality. Congrats should go to whichever parent made a phone call to get your kid on the team..... One day daddy won't be able to call his buddy to help his kid out and then they are screwed. Keep living through your kid. Out of those three kids is a Ferrari, one is a ford and the other is an Amish buggy.
LOL

Yeah whatever probably all three can't read or understand simple basic things. Try three Edsels. Nobody from cny ever makes it big on those stupid school wanabe teams it's the upstate neanderthal pipedream. All will be police dispatchers or corrections workers who act as immature and argumentative as these posters if history is any guide. Programmed failure.
oh nooooooooooooo

Three New Hartford kids all disown their parents for living a dream through them when the reality of life sets in. Junior rangers.... Your kidding yourself. The big club has shitty scouts and apparently so does their junior team. Give it up and stop wasting your time living through your kids.
Wow

What type of a pompous idiot would brag about their kids accomplishment when everyone knows that it is false. That's sad, really sad. The pressures that are put on kids by their own parents is just disgusting. You should be very proud of yourself. I thought it was funny how the article said they play for valley elite and new hartford, aren't they the same thing? One, the only one plays for Syracuse and the other two were axed from a sub par AAA team. Come to grips people, your kids aren't the next Wayne Gretzky.

Dear All,

How does this guy still promote his nonsense? Everyone in this area except for the idiots in NH know exactly what this guy is all about. It's hysterical that this guy continues.

Does anyone know if these "stars" made the team? I'm guessing they didn't or the kids father would have wrote another article for my home town sports...... Bunch of clowns.
