Avoiding the “Mob Mentality” If the Ship Starts Sinking When Coaching Youth Football

No matter how long you have been coaching youth football, there will come a year when everything seems to go wrong. It may be due to lack of talent, injuries or just bad luck. It never fails that when things go bad, so do some of the parents.

The one observation have made over the years of coaching youth football, is that most “rattlers” look for support. The bad parents will start putting out feelers to the other parents to see if they agree with them. These psychos start to “recruit” other parents so they can come after you in numbers.

It is sad to say but this does actually happen. It never fails that when you are in the middle of a miserable youth football year  UFABET งบน้อยก็เดิมพันได้ there will be some jerk that is there to make it even worse.

I can only tell you that you need to isolate the problem parents and address them head on. Do not play ostrich and stick your head in the sand hoping it will go away. It will not, and the number of complainers will begin to grow.

Do not under any circumstance let a “mob mentality” grow among the parents. Please review the youth football chapter on dealing with the bad parents and make sure you stay on top of it.

I know it sounds crazy, but if you stay paranoid, nothing should creep up on you. While coaching youth football, you need to have your guard up at all times. Good parents can go badly by trying to justify playing time, play calling and any other nonsense they can dream up if the season is going bad.

Most years you do not have to concern yourself with these extreme examples, but if you coach football long enough you will.
