: : : : : My daughters coach is insisting that his team all wear the same team shoe and socks. I just spent a grip on flourescent shoe my daughter wanted. What should we do?

: : : : Simple, undermine the coach's authority by not going along with the plan and not buying into the system and just allow your kid to do whatever they want. When your kid doesn't play because she doesn't do what the coach says to do. Then, go meet with the coach and demand a reason why your daughter doesn't play and it will all trace back to the fact that you spent a grip on florescent shoes to make your kid look cool versus allowing your kid to be a team player and follow the coach's wishes because maybe if you are on this team it is a tried and true system that works. But go ahead and do what you want because parent and player happiness is always what is more important than not being apart of a team.

: : : And then you and your daughter can sit down and watch this together. After that, you can make your decision. Thank you by the way. Thank you for being a prime example as to why no one wants to coach any more... Fluorescent shoes... what a joke.
: : :
: : Why should shoes matter. If the kid can go then my feeling is let them wear the shoes they like.

: The fact that you even say that says enough. Thank god I don't have to coach your kid! She woudln't be playing for me!

I'm not an old school coach at all and I have very few rules, but one of them is that the players must wear black shows with black socks. I don't care on brand, but I do want the kids to look like a team and not have attention grabbing highlighter shoes. You can buy those same shoes your kid wanted in all/mostly black.

And yes, if a kid refused and wore the colored shoes, they wouldn't get off the bench.

This is one of the ways to push the team concept and the team looks better.
