Disagree...discipline maybe the wrong word but getting everyone on the same page is really not that hard if you aren't a raving lunatic. I have coached 10 yo-15 yo (boys and girls) from club level to travel to complete novice rec leagues.

If the parents see that you are really trying to do right by their kid they will respond to you reasonably. Sure there are parents that think their kid needs more playing time, etc. But if they know you aren't just picking on their kid and truly are trying to help them become better players and better athletes the parents generally appreciate your efforts.

Just don't make a huge deal about it. "Hey little Suzy doesn't seem that interested in XYZ, how do you think I should approach her?" is an innocuous way to start it. Obv if the kid is a repeat problem then you need to be more and more direct to both the kid and the parent.

But yeah like Skip said it's also the coaches job to keep things in proper doses given age and skill level. I see the stuff Little Slim does playing pretty high level club lacrosse and can't even imagine her having the patience for this stuff 2 years ago. Everything needs to be age and skill appropriate.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I mean I watch coaches working with 3rd and 4th graders in lacrosse...I'll talk to them and ask how it is going.

Coach: "I have one girl that can even throw and catch!"
Me: "How much time do you spend on throwing and catching in practice?"
Coach: "Just the first 10 mins to warm up. Have to install an offense and a defense!"

Who's the problem here?

Everybody.

The parents for not bestowing lacrosse talent to their kin.

The children for not having raw talent.

The coach for not knowing how to coach.

admittedly grunched but why is seemingly next to nobody suggesting that a potential suicidal guy do the standard thing of going to a doc/get on meds immediately

is it cuz the media said stuff?

Grunch means you didn't read the replies. Which makes sense.

Welp, mostly because we're all trying to be the original one who comes up with something new and novel to recommend.

(Personally, I think Sabr should start drinking kombucha, and all of his troubles will be immediately fixed. None of this professional mental health nonsense -- which is so 10-minutes-ago anyway.)

Look dude, if you want to be "that guy" who can't ever think of anything new to add to the conversation, then by all means, play whip-out with your giant brain and lay it on us.

You get a straight son you only have to worry about one dick.

You get a straight daughter you have to worry about all the dicks.

Bruh, don’t disagree with The Best. He knows all about kids, parents and coaches like he knows about everything else

Pretty much. At that level here is your offense: give the ball to your best player and get everyone else out of the way

I only know about financial matters bruh.

But I imagine the problem with slim's example is literally every parent has a hot take on how coaching could be improved or how their kid could be better utilized...and even if they are correct this creates a bottleneck.

If every parent got their way there would be 22 quarterbacks on the field.
