I have 50 50 custody of my children, my ex signed my kids up for soccer last year,this year my son wanted to play , it was last minute and we found out they league had to cancel his age division (no coach) , so my husband stepped up and volunteered to coach.Now my ex says I can't sign up my son with out knowing his schedule and he wants his coach from last year.NOT my husband , I can see it being a jealous spat (he is like that) do I have a legal leg to stand on?Can someone please help me with some advice?(My son was very excited his step father is going to coach )

50/50 custody means you are both supposed to agree... but it also means you have every right to sign him up and all he can do is take you to court over it... The fact that your ex signed him up last year and the kid WANTS to play... will not help your ex out if he decides to take it to court. You should double check w/ your lawyer, but I think you are fine on this one. You can let your ex know that since your husband is coaching, transportation to practices and games will not be a problem for you guys if he can't take your son. ;)
