Small thing that annoys me? Seeing my son work so damn hard all through summer to get into a sports team that he deserves a place in, but being denied the opportunity on the basis of the coach being the sole selector and there being nepotism and politics at play...
His son and his son's best school mates are making up a decent sized chunk of the team and a few of them are not good enough to be there. Also club chairman and committee members are also parents of kids in team.
Quite upsetting to see the amount of effort expended by a young boy (who is very good at what he does and ridiculously dedicated) to fit into a group that simply will not take him unless someone leaves and one of their friends is not available to fill the void.
Sadly there's always this risk with parent run sport. And the way schools are going, there will be more and more of them (IE schools having less to do with extra curricular activities).
Can you get any of the fees refunded? I assume he still gets to play, just for a lower team?
