Oldsmar Falcons

I am extremely frustrated with the varsity cheer coaches. I have a daughter who has cheered for 3 years and this is her first year on the Falcons. She has been belittled, bullied by her coaches who are all 200-300 pounds. I addressed this issue on 5 occasions via email; but last night on a parent-coach meeting I brought up my issues. Which they denied, got in my face, told me she was replaceable while my daughter was next to me. All I could do is cry for her while her other coaches were pointing and laughing. Two cheer leaders quit in the past two weeks from the bullying - I asked, don't you think this is an issue? They said no, they couldn't cheer. I don't know about one of them but one was awesome. This association is ran very poorly and before you consider signing them up; think twice. My sister has cheered for 13 years and coaches has never experienced such drama, criticism or disrespect. My daughter is in 8th grade, taking 3 high school courses, has all straight As and always have, not to mention she cheers great. She's been doing it for 3 years. I'm not just saying that because she is my daughter. The tbyf needs to be ran better. I'm disgusted, disappointed and will never sign her up with some organization ran as poorly as this. What coach gets in a parents face for something I pay for? I'm not sure what I can do at this point but pull her out. I just want people to know of the horrible treatment these children are experiencing. 3 other girls are quitting this week. Sad.  (Oct 14, 2011 | post #1)
