Yup same with hoops with the above family he sits on JV then makes varsity hoops. The fact of the matter is with hoops if you pay you make the team. The coach is treated to dinners and additional incentives by some parents, another ones parent gets to sit in the gym on closed door tryouts sessions and more of this rolls over to baseball due to the same coach coaching two varsity sports.
There is so much graft and rules not applying to some that it is hard to fathom.
The lack of integrity at NH is very sad. The district reeks of all the negative characteristics you can think of when it comes to personal traits.
In whitesboro, our AD has integrity and does whats right- he does'nt have to think about it, when your honest doing whats right comes in an instant.
. NH hoops has won 3 straight league titles for the first time ever. And baseball has back to back sectional finals. Give them some credit

You are totally missing the point but then again I guess you don't understand or your in the political fix. The best kids always make the team but its the next level that get political favors. Again, a kid is 12th man on JV as a 9th grader 2 years ago and makes varsity the next year. Not strange? He didn't get any better maybe worse. Political favors at its best.

I agree I'm sure that happens. A lot of coaches don't want lids who parents constantly complain that's why the 10th 11th and 12th guys usually have the best attitudes. But its not fair to the parents and kid who worked hard and deserves playing time to say NH is all about money and politics.

There is no way New Hartford will win a section next year. Probably will be a 7-8 seed in the playoffs. Knocked out in the first round. Boro will beat them by 20 next year.

NH last few slots are filled always with the parents that fill the coaches pockets or cator to the coaches needs. Better terms, brown nose there way in.

We wont win sectional, we WILL have a more impressive record, idk about playoffs, but wboro will be within 6 points. This year wasn't about changing the game, or the AD. It was about breaking that 17-loss streak and proving that NH Is simply climbing out of a low.

Mick. I agree with you. We'll see about the score next year. That's why they play the game. Let's hope its a well played game like this year with no problems

To all the cry baby parents out there. Don't let it be a coaches decision .Do extra work with your kid. Its not always talent ITS POOR ATTITUDE sometimes that keeps kids grounded. There's no question coaches sometimes play favorites but some kids overcome this crap and become better people and players. Its called putting the team first. That's what winners do!!!!!!
Fully agree, no coach should stand in the way, or be used as an excuse, for a kid working hard to achieve their goals. However, your statement that "...coaches SOMETIMES play favorites...", while i agree for the most part, it is not SOMETIMES at NH, it is a common theme at NH, and you can tell for which teams it is most prevalent, bc they are the ones that have struggled recently. Football and lacrosse (boys AND girls) stand out as teams where the political BS has swamped the program. What happened with the girls lacrosse team last year is straight out of a sitcom, except that it's not so funny for a kid that is working hard to get something positive done.

I am not a parent, so you can only accuse me of being a cry baby (a NH school tax paying cry baby), but if you really want to hear a bunch of cry babies you should go to a NH football coaches meeting. I won't include the newer younger coaches in this, but Frank Cristiano for instance is one of the most annoying whiners that I have ever met. A great example for the kids.

NH needs to clean house starting with the AD and a few coaches. I think we know the political coaches that must go.

<quoted text>
NUTSHELL VERSION
1. The board is a problem, yes because the members only concern is to be able to say they are on the NH school board; doing what is in the best interest of the students and community is not of their interest, save for one new member, but one against 6 is not good odds.
2.The issues are many but it originates with the AD. The entire program has become a self serving administration for him personally.
He has been allowed to by-pass rules for his own children in furthering of their athletic endeavors and hire and fire coaches based on his own personal interest. He does not care what people think because he knows the Superintendent will not do anything evidence by the hand picked advisory board that was established to monitor the athletic program as a result of the communities outrage with the athletic programs. The advisory board has the AD on it!!! HA
The stories, truths and goings ons are many and there is not enough space here to tell all.
3. New Hartford is home of the parent/coach. I believe there are approximately 9-10 parent coaches vs. Whitesboro 0 parent coaches.
Parents are hired by the AD and the board approves. When you have parents you have no certification as in teacher coaches who are automatically certified. When they are not certified the district is liable. That is what the one board member is trying to do. He is trying to square away the BS at that school, bring back integrity to the administration and get the taxpayers out from the liability of the decisions made by the AD.

Well said Ed!

This is the most corrupt organization run in all school sports. The AD, coaches, Sup and some parents are all in bed together. It ruined the football program for years and now it will destroy the basketball/baseball teams too. The favoritism that goes on at NH is truly out of control. I don't know how thay sleep at nights thinking how corrupt they all are. When they say money talks, it sure does. And at whose expense? The Kids who deserve better and fairness.
