foltz hasnt killed either division. but he also hasnt done any work to build them up. there are about the same number of teams every year. he just doesn't care. a separate director in charge of them would be a great step but it cant be someone who plays or coaches. that didnt work the last time. there is money to be made in coed and womens if someone wanted to put in the effort. ya avon sucks and 7/3 sucks but they are getting teams to show up to the park which is the point. and ya they are smaller divisions than mens but they can still be profitable. even mens could grow more if foltz would actually compete against the other associations instead of thinking hes automatically better cause hes in indy.
Anyone else realize how Foltz has killed the womens and coed divisions in Indiana by being money happy and all for mens... I get it. Mens has more teams naturally and will make the most money, but how do we go from having consistently almost 8 teams a womens tournament to only have 3 for state after removing the womens director? When womens or coed play combined, all divisions should be rewarded with the highest finisher being the winner just like mens.
What I do not get is how Avon tournaments for coed can get at least 6 teams every weekend for coed, but these tournaments can't fill. Maybe because Avon costs less and you win more? I have several female friends that would love to play tournament ball but aren't because of how unfriendly the system is to women and coed. We need Foltz to stand up for us women and let us play fair too.
