Parents are struggling with another year of a head volleyball coach that has no clue and this year we bring a coach from Jr high who has never had a clue. We have endured rotations based on "dreams", poor player selctions, coaches children at games and practice being a distraction and safety issue , oversharing of the coaches personnal lives, punishments and rules that don't apply to everyone and that is just a few of the team issues. Now with 5 games left the head coach wants to spilt practices...to accomplish what exactly. If they don't have it by now they aren't going to get it. Have a little commom sense and consideration and realize you are asking 30 plus parents to make special arragements because your varsity team can't win. The varsity team consist of licensed drivers who also are running out for cheer, band and other extra activities. Suck it up and leave the schedule alone for the remaining games and spend sometime learning how to evaluate players and set up rotations. That is the only way this team will win.

This issue is the same issue with teacher evaluations. Bad teachers can have a full classroom of kids pass standardized test with no effort on the teachers part. Good teachers in the students past, diligent parents at home and other factors can contribute to a teacher looking good when in fact everyone knows they are not good at what they do. Same for coaching, the Robin Hill effect is gone and we are left with a coach who is not good at what she does, but if she makes the playoffs she will probably get to keep her job.

Look, this is what happens when the majority of the school board and teachers are all born and bred in Bonham. They never have been outside this town and use the same old small town mentality to govern/teach/coach out children. Think about it next time there is a school board election. Vote for the outsider to bring some type of change to the same old games played by the Bonham ISD members. Coaches are to busy on Facebook with their students.

The "outsiders" that have ran lately would have been worse. I am not sure what a school board member growing up in Bonham has to do with a volleyball coach and some parent whining about it, but oh well.

Tell it like it is "outsider" these people are ignorant on what is going on in the volleyball program, Coach Rod didn't want the job, and the jr hi coach was moved up to take Coach Davis place,the talent isn't as good as year's before. And yes outsiders would make a world of difference in this town.

Outsiders know it all don't they? LOL!

Run for office, tell everyone what you would do different instead of griping and bitching about everything. If the voters want you in there, they'll vote for you.

Heck, tell everyone on here who you think should have been elected to the school board the past few years and why. Give us all these know it all specifics you have!

They are 2-2 in district. And if you were at the game last night you saw that we didn't beat Anna, Anna beat Anna. The rotation used is MUCH better, now if she would stop playing the tall girl on back row and get a new libero we could win them all.

I'm just going to be right up front about all of this.
our coaches work day & night trying to improve our athletic program. Our athletic program has gone through a ton of change this year. Most people don't realize how hard it is to change something after making a habit of it for so many years. Don't bash our coaches when they love their players more than ever & work extremely hard to make us better. Stop being selfish about your kid not getting the playing time that YOU want! DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE TEAM.
I love coach rod. & will stick up for her any day. she has 4 kids & a husband & will still do anything in her power to make her Volleyball team better. Something that y'all parents do not realize is that we work our butts off in practice. WE BEAT ANNA & WE ARE PROUD TO SAY THAT.

YOU GO GIRL!!! Remember to stay positive in thought and actions. Coaches do work very hard and are under appreciated. Maybe the people who have issues will be brave enough to step up and take action. Maybe they would be willing in some small way to assist the team!

volleyball is a stupid sport anyway. We feel sorry for the girls so we give them a LAME sport to boost their spirits. They need to stop sports and be in the kitchen where they belong.

What I want to know, is who decided that girls volleyball players have to wear the tight, small shorts. That's the biggest travesty of all of this. Was it Some pervert at UIL?

@the player....YOU ARE SUPPORTED. Saw lots of parents and community in the stands. And I as a parent I want to support the coaches but you can sit in the stands and know who the favorites are just as you can sit in the stands and listen players talk about practices. You can honestly say you have never feared the little "cheerleader" will get hurt by a hard hit ball in practice, or that a point may be lost because she is doing flips right behind the officials (happened last night). The hours the coaches put in are long and parents understand the stress, but to get support and respect you have to give it. You get respect by doing whats right for the whole team varsity, jv purple and jv black and that is not being done. It is not about playing time or being selfish it is about the team. Watching any team hit to the same Bonham girl and score 10 points and time out not being called or pulling the girl out is not doing what is best for the team. The coaches have to decided they want all the girls to succeed not just a select few.@listen parents do step up but banging your head against a wall gets old after a while. GO FIGHT WIN!!!
