This league is a joke! I have been a paying parent for the last 2 years and the favoritism and just lack of respect for other coaches, players, parents and teams is disgusting. There are a few coaches that are just expected to win, regardless of the teams actual record. Rules change mid sentence, if need be, to accommodate certain coaches and league officials. Right now, teams are being cheated out of their hard work just so certain teams can play each other in the Super Bowl. It is getting to the point to where these elected officials do not even care who knows...the league President just said "don't vote me back next year". Cheating is ok with this group of guys and the kids lose out in the end.
First, as a parent we are made to buy merchandise with "Boone County Pee-Wee Football LEAGUE"...NOT Boosters Club, Inc? It took me a while to find it because of that reason.
My family has been volunteering our time to the BCPFL for over 9 years. My husband was volunteering his time even before we had children involved in the league. He wanted to get into the league so that when it was time for our kids to play, he would be in a position to coach him.
Finally, by God's grace, the Head Coach position became open. In the past, a vote has not been necessary for a coach to be moved up to the Head Coach's position. But, in my Husbands case, the said a vote was necessary. Why? My husband is only 1 of 3 African American Coaches in a league of over 23 Teams. In the past there have been other African American Coaches that have asked for a team and have been turned down.
This past Saturday, September 05, 2015, the league released my Husband in the Middle of the Football Season. Never in the history of the league has a coach been let go in mid season.
As a family we wanted to know why. We were told many "little" reasons, but nothing that any other coach doesn't deal with. As a mother of 2 children in the league I felt betrayed and disrespected. They didn't give consideration for the time and love we have put into that league as volunteers.
As a paying parent, there have been times when I have worked the concession stand and have witnessed the President's family come into the area and take what ever they want, as many times as they please. I would think that this activity is against all non-profit rules. It is not there field to have for personal use.
For the past 3-4 years that have been MULTIPLE accusations stated by League Officials that "Someone" is/was stealing money. This is proved how? The officials can say everyone is stealing so they can keep the money to themselves. I believe they should go through a IRS Tax Audit. For some reason they were up for an audit and it got cancelled?
Also, on the Tax form for this organization only has 4 Officers listed on the tax form, yet when they make "Executive Board Decisions" there are at least double that amount of "friends" at the table. Why, and is this legal?
This "Boosters Club" is a money making machine but if you see the Form 990, you wouldn't be able to tell. Just take a glance and you will notice all the things this Boosters Club did not want to disclose in the forms.
