A few weeks into one season, the parent comes to me and says, “Sorry, we’re done.”
“You told him to practice for 10-15 minutes a day with the ball. For 3 weeks, I asked if he practiced like coach asked. Every time the answer was no. 10-15 minutes a day isn’t too much to ask. If he’s not going to follow through on his end, not even once, that tells me he doesn’t want to play”
Most parents won’t make that call.
