Woolli arrghhhhh...

of course 4 to 6 years old are not taught the way teenagers are! They are not at school either, are they - but that does not mean they are just being 'entertained', doh. Same for reading, skiing, tennis or maths.... or whatever!

Comparable what is known here as
Früh-Englisch
Früh-Französisch
etc


but the coach is judged as if coaching the national team, while possibly just working as a salesman at Inter-Discount and doing this coach-job in his offtime

Wolli- excuse my asking but are you a (ro)bot, by any chance?

Re: Anti female or anti English

Just read all the pages, no one yet has suggested you speak to the coach? My advice: speak to the coach!! But my 2 cents; it is unlikely the coach is either anti female or anti English. It's probably in your head, and I mean that in the kindest possible way! I have kids similar ages so I know how it feels as a parent it's hard not to take everything personally. My daughter went to school in the UK for 3 years, and 3 christmases she did not get picked for Mary at the nativity play! 3 times a little voice in my head went "why the f--k didn't they pick her for Mary!" Our default is to feel that way because we want everything for them! That's really what I think, but if you truly believe there is a problem and it's not just your subjective parent bias, then what you really must do is speak to the coach...

I suggest you re-read the first post. OP did just that, but not, it seems, in a calm considered way. " had a pop at" implies quite the opposite, rather like the whole rant he posted here.

Has anyone checked to see whether the coach is a Chelsea fan?

And that will really help them later on, when dealing with rejections because they're not good enough for something... and must improve or adjust their expectations if they want to have a chance in a certain field...
Not all parents think like this, fortunately.

That is nothing - I went to school in the UK from the age of 4.5 until 18.5 - and not once was I picked to play Mary.

Re: Anti female or anti English

Well good morning people, well some of you have brought a smile to my face this Monday morning, two kids are off to school, made sure we got there FIRST!!
Got to say some of you are not pulling on your ears hard enough, ask someone for help if you need it!!

The saddo that brought Down Syndrome into this, you need a good kick up the arse, with your head still in there!

A couple of you actually get it, so rocken en roll

And off topic a bit but for Football and soccer, it is Football, just read it, it is so simple, it`s in the name Foot and Ball then join them together and you will get Football, not Throw ball a couple of countries play

No, soccer is 'Association Football'.

P.S. The clue is in the meaning of FIFA.

American Football is a misnomer, as it was invented in Canada (as was basketball).

The only type of football that doesn't suck is Rugby Football.

Unfortunately, it's not a sport for girls.

Would that be rugby league or rugby union?

Au contraire, there are plenty of girls who play rugby and there are women's rugby teams around too. There have been for many years.
