    I coach the Ohio Outlaws 12u and I have heard from a parent on the team that they have folded. We are still looking for 1 girl for our team, we are currently at 9 but one will be playing middle school till mid May ,if any of these girls are interested we are located near Akron, OH. Give coach Adam a call at 3303526527

    It's getting really bad when a team with a sponsor can't make it work.

    Don't know what happened in this case, but I know the sponsor and some people who have coached in this organization in the past and they're good people. My only comment is that teams fold all of the time, and it often has little to do with the money. It's usually players and families moving on to another organization where they think they will be able to either play or win more or upgrade their game or coach their own daughter or play with friends.

    ALL OF THESE COACHES ARE GREAT GUYS AND COACHES. I can not say enough good things about these guys. Their daughters will be lifelong friends of my daughter. It is very unfortunate that this team disbanded but it did. Sponsor.....yes one of the coaches bought and spent thousands of $$ for this team in terms of equipment and clothing for the girls.

    This is sad but true also. We unfortunately have come across one family in particular that likes to play frogger with teams. They are pretty well known for this. They jump around. I feel sorry for their DD to a point. Its very sad. I think it ultimately comes down to the father and his ego. He definitely didn't like others outshining his kiddo.

    I’m sure there are diff opinions out there and this is just mine as a former coach We thought we had a great situation last fall that turned bad in a matter of months because a few parents always think they can do better and don’t care what it does to those other 12 year old girls left behind who are not there’s ... valuable lesson learned, these kids are not college or professionals where they pretty much have to stay where you COMMITTED to and most have a father always looking for the “better situation”and will up and leave ... so nothing was wrong with our sponsor, our girls , or our organization ... JUST OUR TRUST

    You 're posting, on OFC, that 12u kids don't "commit"?

    Are you trying to get lynched???
