I am writing this as I have been Sponsor and a Supporter of this team for the past 2 years. My granddaughter played on for the Oshawa Turuls. I am very disappointed in how she has been treated, especially
over the last few months. I have helped this team with bottle drives and various other fund raisers, which I loved doing for and with all the girls; and now my granddaughter basically gets benched for more time then playing time. To play 9 minutes out of a 45 minute 1st half and then when she asks why in the 2nd half she gets nothing, then after 20 Minutes of play only to be told nothing again. It doesn't matter what sport it is all kids should be allowed to play no matter whether they a great player or not. What ever happened to kids having fun (win or lose ). What happened to the coaching on this team. They throw a girl into a new position , she comes off frustrated and asks what am I doing wrong and gets no response. She comes to practice one night with a sore back (at least she shows up) and part way through tells her coach she can't practice anymore because of her back which she twisted at work that day, at her summer job. His response was "that's what you get for working', what the hell!!!! what kind of response is that? We as adults encourage our children to work and earn their own money. Where does anyone come off saying things like that to a child? The majority of the time there's no response but when one is given this is what is said??? It broke her heart to walk away from this team but I don't blame her, she wasn't getting enough playing time over the last month . Shame on this teams coaching ability. It broke my heart to see her team win on the last night she played against the best team in their division in a shoot out and turn around to see her in tears. No one has bothered to call or contact the family, not that it matters but just another example of being excluded as well as all players have their names on the day and month that their birthdays fall on, but not my granddaughters, what a surprise?
