Do you not just love when you offer a placing to an athlete and you get a reply, my child won't be back as it's not in her best interest, when she doesn't have any tumble won't work on any tumble.

I think if this is a coach starting this thread, very unprofessional. I completely understand it may be frustrating, but to bad mouth not only the parent and the child on an anonymous thread? Not very nice at all.

Well they didn't mention any names, so I'm sure the unknowing parent will get over it?

Not really the point, still very unprofessional. Keep it to yourself.

No I haven’t because I’m not a coach I’m an athlete. But if I was a coach I’d be a bit more professional than to slate someone on a forum just because they didn’t want to accept their offer. It happens to every team, get over it.
To write a rude message about a parent is one thing, but to involve the child is just wrong.

@post6 but they didn’t involve the child, they quoted the parents message. I’ve coached for 12 years and in some places I’ve worked the parents are really appreciative of what you do for their children and this helped us create a positive, hard working environment for the teams. In other places it’s been a completely thankless task and the parents have caused constant drama and stress, messaging at all hours and expecting us to bend over backwards for them no matter how rudely they ask. I’ve now stopped coaching classes for children as a result. It’s important that coaches are supported and sometimes sharing frustration helps. No one has been named, we can’t identify the coach from this post never mind the parent or child. Its not unprofessional - you can pass judgment when you start coaching and see what it really involves.

They commented on the child’s tumbling (or lack of in this case). I don’t mean to be rude with my posts I’m just saying maybe not the best way to vent? I’m fully aware of what it’s like. I have coached in the past and I understand parents can be so frustrating and think they know best. I was just saying I don’t agree with the way that it’s been handled. I’m allowed to voice my opinion just like you all have. Again, I’m not trying to be a bitch or nasty or anything like that so I’m sorry if that’s how I come across. I just personally wouldn’t of done that, now or when I was a coach.

Have a lovely day xxx

It’s not suspicious. It was Goldstar under a different name.
