Everyone talking smack about bluefire but there not alone in this. Has anyone seen the garbage products these organizations are putting out there.
Bluefire has mommy and daddy in the dugout ALL the time. How many people have left there recently
Flash is a complete joke. Those parents got duped to say the least.
Pride is just stealing money from 16u down. Its absolutely ridiculous
The list goes on and on. When will parents wake up. Playing at baseball heaven and island fastpitch are fine but stop thinking you're the next best thing. I listen to these people talk and they have no idea.
this is the truth !!
your lucky to find 2 or 3 teams in each age division that are actually teaching the game the right way and prepping the players for the next level.
The softball community has become so watered down that anyone can start a team and fill a roster almost immediately.
Its a really bad cycle that keeps going on
Your kid is not as good as other kids on the team
leave the team and go to a team that is not as good so your kid will be a starter
after this new team plays for a season maybe some new kids join and than your kid is losing playing time
You go look for another newly started team that doesnt have a starting lineup yet and join that one
and the cycle continues and continues
The message it sends to the players is that its not their fault dont worry daddy will bail you out and find you a new team
Instead these parents need to stare their kids in the face and put the responsibility back on the players.
Teach them to put the work in to better their game. Get them to coaches that know how to teach and encourage youth plyers.
Long Island softball is just a sea of watered down softball teams where 75% of the players are taught the wrong way or taught nothing at all
The good teams never play on Long Island and that says a lot considering there are a tremendous amount of teams in our area
