My daughter is on a 10u rec team this year after leaving a travel team (which is kind of still in limbo right now-but I digress). The girls are not bad players at all but the coaches don't seem to know much of anything. The girls don't know how to steal. They didn't even attempt to steal 2nd on a walk. The 3rd base coach had about 4 different wild pitches that he could have had the girl steal 3rd and he left her standing on 2nd. And the girl is lightning fast. I mentioned on another thread that they don't know that SS is to cover 2nd base on a throwdown. The pitching is slower than what my husband pitches to his 8u team. Watching them play is painful. How do I approach the coaches or should I even attempt to approach them? I don't want to be a know-it-all parent but they seem to need some help. I've offered for the team to come to my house to bat off our pitching machine so they could at least get their batting quicker but the coaches didn't seem to think they needed it. I had one of the coaches wives make a comment to me last night that she knew the team was really bad but that her daughter would probably make all-stars and be on a better team. They are not going to even be able to see a girl showcase her skills if no one else can help her do that. And a girl who doesn't know how to steal isn't going to make all-stars.
