This youth tackle football league that will put your kid at risk from the very first practice untill the very last game of the season. Despite from being told by league officials that the children will be evalutated and teams will be created on a equal basis it is quite clear after watching the season this is not the case. Coach's within the league all ready have a general idea of what the players they want and deal amongest each other when forming teams. Coaches will favor their kid to play key postions on the field in order to self promote their own kid. Kids that are of smaller size will often play in postions that simply they can not physically play. IE seen small small kid play DT and just get steam rolled over and over. One of the most ridiclouis things is there is no weight limit and children are not matched to other children that have the same physical make up. One example that i can think of was the team called the "ducks"  by far the smallest of team versus a far supieor team the reddogs where they had 2 kids well overweight and where very very tall as compared to thier peers. In short if you kid is small and you dont have any "local" ties to the community ie your son's dad is not coaching I would not recommend this leauge to you. It is straight up for profit league and all the money is going back to Dan Garman and his cronies who are turning a profit while promoting their own children. All the while making yours a tackle dummy. The key thing to watch is that every team throught the league will never have thier son playing in the trench's; ie Dline, oline... Coach's kids will always be in a postion that allows them to self promote thier kid. Dont make the mistake I did and allow your kid to become a tackle dummy! Kids themselve will come from far away as clarkston to play because they cant not get in any league due their weight and size. If your kid is small in nature he dont stand a chance in this league!

 

Should be called the BIG Joke!

The Big G Youth Football/Dan Garmin

AUTHOR: football parent - ()

 This complaint on The Big G Youth Football/Dan Garmin is not accurate and i feel its important for parents to hear others experience with the league. My boys played their 1st season of football last year.. They are both on the smaller size and did not have any knowledge of the game. They both struggled at first and i was not sure it would be something they would continue. My youngest played on the pee wee divison and after the encouragent of the coachs and Dan Garmin he began to learn the fundamentals of the game and found to love football.

My oldest was on the junior league and my husband had the opportunity to coach. We are not from DAVISON community and my husband did not know any of the kids. They had a draft that Dan Garmin set up in which a point system is used. This is a very fair way for players to be choosen equally. This complaint gives an example of the smallest team "ducks" in comparison of the "Red Dogs", which is not accurate because the "ducks" were part of the pee wee divison and "Red dogs" were junior.

My husband was also the coach for the Red Dogs with reminders that he had no "inside" info or preplaned picks before chosing this team, like stated in the article. As far as coaches always placing their own kids in key positions is not accurate either. my son did not always play a key position because he was not quite as ready as others last season. Im sure some coaches do have their children playing key positions, however, maybe this is bc they have been working hard, putting in the time, and fit that position best. All of these coaches are volunteers, they do not get paid, and are putting in alot of time.

Dan Garmin stresses to them that he wants The big G football league to be about teaching the fundamentals ,safety, and for the kids to have fun. Mr Garmin is always avail for parents and their children if there are concerns. He works really hard to run a solid, safe and fun program for your child. Also many leagues charge an average of 300-400 dollars in which The Big G Football charges $185. Which covers field use, insurance, uniforms, safe updated equip for your child. As far as this being a profit only organization is not true. I hope this one complaint on The Big G Football league and Dan Garmin will not change your mind when choosing a youth football league for your child. I have had a very good experience and so have many others.
