Rhodyallstars.com / Keep your kids away from them
My daughter signed up for Rhody All stars in the spring of 09. Initially she loved it until the owner, Lance Merry, in a tempermental hissy fit, publicly humiliated her and verbally abused her in front of her whole team for a misunderstanding that was actually my fault (I am her mom). She left the practice in tears, totally humiliated and consequently never wants to step foot in there again. Mr. Merry was completley unprofessional, disrespecful and verbally abusive to a 14 year old child. When confronted, he did not apologize or say there was a misunderstanding or anything like that. He continued to pull his little hissy fit with me. I, however, am not a shy 14 year old who is intimidated by an overgrown child. I was paying a lot of money for her to attend this academy and I expect her to treat people with respect and in turn, I expect her to be treated the same way. Rhody All Stars is run by a bully who likes to intimidate little girls. Keep your kids away.
