The unnamed trainer of an Indiana youth club, set up to introduce youngsters to American football in a fun atmosphere, is said to have then posted degrading comments about their son on the Christian Park Youth Football League's official Facebook page.
His parents demanded action from the league after the coach posted what they described as 'demeaning and degrading' comments about their son on Facebook.
After approaching league president Bill Daniels the posts were removed, and the coach was fired and banned from the football park.
'We just don't condone that kind of behavior at all, you know, c'mon this is pee wee football,' Mr Daniels said.
Mr. Daniels has planned a meeting with coaches and parents to review training techniques and to remind them of the spirit the league was set up in.
As well as teaching children how to play American football, the Christian Park club was set up to instill teamwork and respect in its young players.
