If the problem with high school sports is the youth leage do you have realistic suggestions as to how it can be fixed?

As a community we are constantly able to identify the problems but rarely do I hear about solutions to those problems.

It's really simple, the kids that play in the so called sports program that hra-usa have end up playing for the school, just check out the school sports and see how Holdenville compares to schools the same size, like Bethel, Chandler, Perry, Stroud, and many more.

isn't hra-usa for kids to play and enjoy, not to have the sole purpose of winning??i am not understanding the issue with the youth sports, the coaches are volunteers and not paid professionals. again as a community we can find the flaws but never have a educated answer for them

If you don't want to teach the kids how to play and win, don't start having fits when they can't win in high school. Your EDUCATED answer is teach kids to be winners and sucessfull when their young and they will be sucessfull as they grow older.

As I previously stated we have to have solutions. You say to teach kids to be winners and SUCCESSFUL when they are young and they will be SUCCESSFUL as they grow older. Really we should teach them to be "winners"? What about fundamentals of the game...any game? What about the lessons you learn in losing? Part of the problem are those who feel they must "win" at all costs. Parents, teachers, and coaches should teach children to work hard and strive for success and in achieving a goal is when a child learns to be a true winner.

There are some good volunteer coaches in the USA program. I've been very satisfied with how they taught my child to play and my child enjoys ball every summer.

Jimmy Jett is a good coach he teaches them to play and how to excell, he has coached my children every year they played and they loved him, now if the high shcool coaches could coach like him we would have a winning season,
Why dont the bball coaches let our teams press sometimes that is what keeps us from winning is because they hold them off instead of letting them go, I think if they would have pressed more in the Bethel game we could have won it

Daisey- You are an idiot. Please do not pretend to know enough about basketball to know more than the coach. Varsity high school basketball is not the same as little league, please do not pretend as if the level of play or coaching is anywhere close to the same. Little league coaches are volunteers and thank goodness for them. High school coaches are paid professionals, their livelihood depends on 14-18 year old kids' performance. I can assure you they will do everything possible to have success.

Yeah its sad they get paid to coach like some of them do too. Press against Bethel? How about score, play defense, rebound and press. Maybe they could of at least competed, instead of getting beat by 50 points. I'm thankful mine have USA coaches after watching that game.

aaa i know enough to know that the coaches suck, you got teams like Bethel who were pressing the whole game but our coach sends the girls to the other end instead of teaching them or letting them use a press breaker that they have already been taught they may have been able to get the ball over the line then dont ya think.
Be Happy thank you you understand what i was trying to say
If someone has a problem with the youth program teaching our kids then why dont you run for school board and suggest that we start our kids out in sports in the first grade so they can be coached by "real coaches " as some have said.
The parents that coach for USA/HRA don't get paid to do it they do it for the kids and i have yet to see one of them sit down on the bench and give up on the kids as i have in high school sports.

this is hilarious....so you want the coach to have girls try to press against a team that has girls with overwhelmingly more talent, skill, athleticism experience, desire, ball-handling, scoring power, quickness, and strength?? you would've gotten beat by 90.....the question is why do these girls have these inferior bball skills??????? there are certain skills that players should have BEFORE they even get to their high school coaches...such as being able to make an accurate pass and catch a pass as well as make a left and right handed layup with the correct hand....if a hs coach is having to teach these things, you will NEVER compete with bethel.....you should be thanking your hs coaches for all work they put into their players....get a clue, you can't press a GREAT team with a MEDIOCRE one and expect success

Exactly! Holdenville has had 3 coaches in 3 years...what team is going to learn from that? At least in Little League you can count on the same Coach usually, or we have, to coach your kid. I happen to think my kids are good ball players and it shows at the age they are now but you have to continue to work hard and keep them involved in sports if they are ever going to succeed. Even if it means traveling to Seminole or out of town to play also. Holdenville did a great thing by adding 5th & 6th grade basketball this year. Alot of Holdenville kids these days don't have the talent or the drive to even win games so good luck on a winning season. I'm from Holdenville and I pray for all our kids sake that we get some good coaches and keep them. Some that demand respect and get it from players and parents. Some that are a hard on our kids and not worried about making parents mad...I am one and I expect a tough coach because if winning was easy wouldn't we all be signing up? How else will we ever have a winning program in Holdenville?
