One of the most valuable lessons that Little League teaches, more than other sports I believe, is that if you don’t show up, you can’t win. Kids are good at this, they show up thinking they will win, take an opponent light, or simply don’t give it their all. When they do this it is during a big game our tournament and inevitably they lose.
Great life lesson, hard for the parents to take. We have to remember that this is why we sign them up, to learn tough lessons like this.
What is the toughest lesson your kid has ever learned in sports?
