My daughter is 15. Another player lied about something I said and the coach found out and text the captain of the soccer team at school. Once the captain received the text she told other girls on the team at school and it spread like wild fire. My daughter is now being chastised because of the coaches so called "protocol". He said he always texts the team captain with any team "drama". These girls are 15-18 years old, crazy protocol! Just wondering if there are laws against this. Also, are there laws protecting a player from a coach taking playing time away because a parent has complained.
I didn't see the text, but from what I heard he said I said something negative about another player. The coach has also admitted to texting the captain.
Thank You for this information. I would love to offer you a tip, but funds are very tight at this time. I'm really sorry, but our conversation was not real long, therefore I feel the $58 I already paid to have you respond was well worth your time. Thank You. Jenifer
