I heard North Venice Little League used to be good but is going down hill fast. I didn't believe it and this season my child had to deal with a coach that called practice and didn't show up about 50% of the time; assistant coach who showed up twice the entire season, once starting a fight with several dads and cheating trying to play an older girl on the team; coaches showing up without any equipment; fights breaking out in the parking lot; swearing by the parents in the stands; scheduling was constantly messed up; umpire were not scheduled for games and they would have teenagers for umpires; and my child also wasn't added to the yearbook even though we paid $25 to have the photographer Photoshop her into the team picture and add her to the photo. She also wasn't listed in the yearbook as part of the team even though I assisted (to help the incompetent coaching staff) and she also didn't get a trophy at the end of the year when all of the other girls did. I also found out that entire teams didn't make it into the yearbook. Do yourself a favor and save yourself from a lot of heartache and go anywhere else. I'll be lucky if I can get my daughter to play any team sports in the future.
Pros: some of the coaches and kids are good
Cons: most coaches, boardmembers, scheduling, management
