The state of Galion girls basketball

This year was supposed to be an improvement, but yet again has turned into a year of mis-managed coaching of players. Players have been placed in wrong positions to optimize performance. Conditioning is lacking on varsity, where jv looks like they do most of the running in practice.
Talent is there in the lower ranks, but this past season only a few freshman tried out of the 13 that played as 8th graders, most listing the reason beiing the varsiity coach. One freshman made the varsity team but her perfomance on jv is riidden with turnovers, and she is not a leader in any catagory. Another freshman with great athletic ability has been under utilized and put on the shelf. Senoirs don't command the leadership, only because the coach shackles the entire program. Its time to get coaches at galion who supply the tools for success, and create expectations. We don't have that in girls basketball, instead we have a coach who is communist to her team, and does not budge when it comes to doing what's best for the team, and winning. Ii think its about time to shelf the varsit, and build for the future. Jv team is winning, but has lost a few recently, all do too game management, and not having the best players on the floor. Kids make mistakes, but don't bench them for one or two quarters, they need to learn and gain experience, after all coaching is teaching.

I personally don't have a player on either squad, but I do know some of them, and their parents. Many 8th graders from last yr, did not come out as freshman this year simply beccause of the varsity coach. I have seen a couple games, and to be quite honest, its evident of what type of coach we have. Its not pretty, and the girls seem to have no direction from fear. Its ok to be a tough coach, and disciplinary, but a coach needs to know how to inspire, which is lacking. Also I have heard many jv girls are not coming back nxt yr, and upcoming freshman are already talking abbout not coming out.
