How disappointing this Junior League is for a first time nine year old player! The coach is doing the best he can but there doesn't seem to be any rules that are followed by other coaches or referees about how close to guard, or how intense guarding can be. At most if not all games the ball cannot be gotten in bounds due to the other teams player(s) all over our player or players. Not all teams are equal in ability and some coaches think it is okay to run up the scores, for example 3 to 33. The constant full court press does not allow any of these lesser skilled players to experience the satisfaction of learning anything about basketball. I thought that this would be a learning experience for skills and ability. How are children suppose to learn how to play when they can't even exercise dribbling skills that are developing.
