Gloucester Township, Camden County
After several years of refusal to get involved with local politics, Gloucester Township politicians have infiltrated Erial Little League.
As is the case with most youth sports leagues, internal politics is not so uncommon, but politicians bring real politics to youth sports by using the parents private email addresses to ruin the game that children sign up for.
Gloucester Township has had a history of using the local youth sports organization's officers (Pres or VP) to gain access to parents private emails. In the past parents have attended council meetings to voice their concerns. It did not stop the party politics from making their way into the private email of parents who gave their email addresses for club use only, including schedules, and up to date cancellations or club activities and announcements.
Two years ago, the president of a GT sports club, refused to allow the local politicians to utilize the parents private email. Interestingly enough the club was rerouted under a new President more tightly connected with the "political powers that be". The only club that had not participated in this practice was Erial Little league. Erial coincidentally is the most successful organization in Gloucester Township.
Concerned parents should be made aware of what they are getting themselves into, when one of their officers gets into local politics in Gloucester Township.
Parents have a right NOT to have their personal email and information shared with people outside of the club, especially "Politicians"
In Gloucester Township, your private email is fair game as it has been in other youth sports organizations in this town. Like it or not. FACT just ask other youth sports parents in town.
