General Discussion / 2018 Numbers....bad
« Last post by mahonz on Today at 10:29:39 PM »
I coach in the largest youth football Org in the State in the largest youth football League in the State.

Just spoke to the Hazza Gazza. Numbers are down about 20%. Registration closes in about 4 hours. Had their last walk in registration yesterday and it was....disappointing.

Oddly we will have 2 second grade teams with about 18 players each. Both coaches have been out recruiting but I have to tell you its rough. I had one mom tell me flat out...all youth football coaches are child abusers.

My Camp is also falling apart. If there is no spike by this Wednesday ...its over.... after 12 years.

I dont care who you are or where you coach or what your situation is....when it comes to 11 man....the end is near. We have two 2nd grade teams.....question is....do we have anyone to play? 2nd grade Division went from 32 teams from 22 Orgs in 2005 to 12 teams from 16 Orgs last season. Even Orgs are disappearing.

The second largest Org in our League pulled out in January to join a competing League. They had been a Member since 1964. My prediction was this was knee jerk because these two competing Leagues might have to join forces just to survive....eventually.

My Org....in its heyday just 12 years ago....1100 kids on 48 teams. This year....maybe 20 teams total.

One neighboring Org has nearly disappeared the last 5 years. Their registration fee this season....$0.00.  They were one of the Original Six that started this League in 1944.

Glad this is my last run but I feel really bad for all the young energetic coaches out there who have no real clue they are all....Dead Men Walking.

Actually, it probably wonít.

Sad but true. I'm just talking out my backside to keep him interested. I'd hate to pull him as it's too late to sign with another team.

THIS IS WHY KIDS QUIT. 

Hope he can stick it out.  For his sake I hope you stick it out too.
