Playing against better players does help with your development, but so does playing
better players. It amazes me that a bunch of experienced players would get any sort of enjoyment out of running show on a bunch of beginners.
I think you've got a legitimate gripe here because it's not fun or helpful to teach you some basic skills and then throw you into a "controlled scrimmige" with a bunch of players that are above your level and expect you to immediately assimilate with the skills that you just learned moments ago.
Is there at least a "chalk talk" session after the scrimmage to talk about your play, or is it basically just "thanks for the money; hope you had fun being beaten like a rented mule!?" Also, are these guys actually playing in the beginners league? There has always got to be one group of ********** that tries to play down because they can't hang with any of the teams in the division they should be in.
Regardless, there's got to be another skills clinic you can join. Don't let these guys keep you from trying to get better. If you decide to stick it out, try and take from the experience what you can. When you are on a losing team or in an impossible situation like this it really helps you grow sometimes; when there is no pressure you can allow yourself to try new things or be a little more aggressive. This can help build confidence.
