I decided that I would support my Son's soccer team instead of getting frustrated. So, I offered to get the team registered for our local UYSA Tournament over UEA. I sent out e-mails, I called parents, and talked to the Players who of course all want to play BUT you need the Parent's consent to play. And Guess what? I can't even get enough Parents to respond to get a full team to play.
I am disgusted, dismayed and damned. I thought that volunteering would release me from my frustration of feeling useless. I was wrong. I must have walked into this with my "Naivete hat" on because I had no idea how hard it was to get Parents involved. A lot of people would say "Shame on you"...you should have known better than to think you could make a difference. But, I haven't given up yet. I just don't understand why people don't even have the courtsey to call me back!!! It is so RUDE! Oh, well...I will I still have 32 hours to get 3 more boys! I don't think that is asking too much do you?
