Constant criticism from a youth sports coach, especially when involves personal attacks, can cross the line into bullying, and often backfires, creating a crisis of confidence in an athlete, damaging their self-esteem and hurting, rather than helping, performance.  Here's advice from a sports psychology professional on what parents and athletes can do about a critical coach.
Team Moms/Coaches
Seven years ago, MomsTEAM's founder decided that sports moms should be celebrated, not just on Mother's Day, but for an entire month, so she declared May to be Sports Moms Month. Here's why.

Every year for the past 19 years, MomsTEAM Founder Brooke de Lench has issued a Mother's Day wish list. Here's this year's list.
Sports
Increased safety in tackle football comes at a cost, leaving many youth and high school programs – and the parents and booster clubs which support them – in a quandary: wondering on the one hand how they can afford to buy expensive new helmets and impact sensor systems for their players, and on the other, how they can afford not to. A car raffle offers a quick and easy way to raise money to buy the latest equipment.
Health & Safety
Head injuries in football, as in other contact and collision sports, cannot be completely eliminated, but there ARE steps that can be taken to minimize risk. MomsTEAM's high school football concussion documentary, "The Smartest Team," focuses on "The Six Pillars" of concussion risk management: education, protection, identification, treatment, return to play and retirement.
