Respect the game

by Robert Braciak

I am a gym facilitator for a youth basketball league at the UCF campus in Orlando. If the parents are causing problems in the stands, showing poor sportsmanship and yelling at the referees the gym manager will ask the coach to get them under control. My belief is the teams are responsible for their parents. Parents are sometimes the main reason for problems. Refs and gym managers do the best they can to set an example for our youth and respect the game.
