One of the unfortunate parts about coaching middle school basketball for me are the days during tryouts. ?The disappointing news I have to give a player and parent on their non selection.? Each year parents and kids attend basketball tryouts hoping to be selected to play for the team.? I have experienced two different types of parents of youth athletes.? You’re either a parent who is investing money and time into your child’s athletic skill development or a parent who is not.? Youth sports is a billion dollar business.??The parents who have not embraced the billion dollar business are usually the parents upset when their child is not selected for the team. ?
