My daughter has a natural ability for sports - soccer in particular. She is crazy fast for one thing. Unfortunately up until last Spring she has only played in REC soccer... or wreck soccer really. Last Spring she worked her ass off and got on a Select Soccer team. It's been a steep learning curve for her as she is going from being a big fish/small pond to being a small fish/big pond. I am a single parent and while I do have a ton of help from my sister and parents it's been tough getting her to various practices, traveling to games both in-state and out, training sessions etc. I took almost 80 hours of vacation last Summer to be able to take her to 3 and 4 day tournaments.
A training session is being offered to the girls, it's on a weekday and is from 5-6:00. I don't live that close to where our team plays - plus like a normal human, I have a job. This training was planned after I gave my input that my kid wasn't available - and to please find something as far away from 5PM as possible. Not sure why the king (team manager) even asked for our availability - clearly it didn't matter. When I enquired why it was set right when most people got off work - not even taking traffic into account and that my kid could not participate at that time I was told that my attitude was negative and it wasn't appreciated. Guess I'm just a hysterical female - not a parent of a team member. Silly me.
