When you finally decide that your child is ready to play youth football, it's a decision not to be taken lightly. First off, it's a commitment. Not a one week or one month commitment but a commitment of 3 or 4 nights a week for 3 months. So it's important that not only your child be comfortable with the decision but you as parents be comfortable with the decision as well.
First and foremost, your child is in 8th Grade or below so just allowing him to play where his friends play is not always the best decision and more times than not parents often tell us about horrible experiences which could have been avoided if they took the time to research the team before they went and signed-up or tried out.
