Good Day Gentleman,

Was wondering what the rules are if any in New York about High School who also Coaches Travel Ball. Especially when the affected age group is currently coming down the pipeline. I know in other states there are strict rules prohibiting this. Any information would be appreciated. This seems like a major conflict of interest and has the potential to negatively affect the program.

unfortunately this is all to common on long island I keep hearing more and more stories of coaches not giving the playing time to players who don't play fall ball or switch to their organizations. I know this first hand and as I would like to say what town I know their would just be more implications I would hope that one day someone could put a stop to this .It is a shame when you see last years starting players siting on bench or getting their playing time cut in half for not paying to play at their coaches organization This is not the thoughts of little Johnny's dad who thinks his son is the next jeter but of a quality player who will not get a fair shake from their high school coaches at least they can receive help from their travel organizations and yes I know there's corruption there as well. This practice is unfair and unjust and boarders on extortion and happens all over Nassau and suffolk

Aren't most coaches hired through the school? I agree if there is a direct coaching connection to a travel team that players for that particular school play for then its tricky. The players are probably making the team regardless of coach but playing time is definitely a question. The unfair and unjust part comes in playing time. I also think that some parents have to face a reality that there child might not be as good as others in those particular positions.
