NH Athletics whats up

In NH majority of coaches are parents coaching their kid. Worse off is mod(parent of player) and jv baseball(parent of player) coaches are ex NH little league board members. So if your dad was with them on the board your kid is a shoe in on modified. Yes talent prevails for the most part but when it comes down to the last 4 or 5 to be cut Coach and players DAD relationship is the deciding factor.
Superintendent's Brother helps coach his son on football. Girls JV softball- parent coaching kid. Girls Field Hockey parent coaching kid and on it goes. Funny that 90 percent of NH coaches are NOT NH school district employees and within that percentage most are parent coaches!No teachers want to coach in NH. Why? Majority have no State Certification either. No integrity consistency or standards whatsoever with NH athletics- And no I have no dog in the fight. Nice job NH Superintendent. Bottom line NO PARENTS SHOULD BE COACHING PERIOD and no coaches who have any conflict of interest should be hired either!!!!!THIS IS NOT YOUTH SPORTS

There is a newly formed NH athletic committee. I really don't know the purpose of it but there was one meeting last week and there is another meeting this Monday April 1st at Bradley. There is a little bit of info regarding the committees purpose and the members listed on the district website. It's a bit difficult to find. If you go to the website, on the left you need to find Departments or something like that until you get to Athletics. It is not under athletics at the top of the home page. I believe there are some coaches and board members on the committee. It is open to the public. I believe they are trying to figure out what has happened to NH athletics and dispel any rumors put there.

Oh I agree. But maybe the public really voicing their opinions to BOE members may help put it all out on the table.

The problem is the so called AD, Alvanos. How about this one, no student can quit a sport then play another, it is a rule. AD daughter quit basketball and now is playing Lacrose, totally against rules. Oh yeah, it is the AD's daughter and mom coaches the team.

Yes I'm well aware of that. It is total BS. Supposedly she was emotionally distraught at a basketball game when her old coach Callan showed up. Give me a break. If it was my kid, there wouldn't be any exceptions. And after all the turmoil in the last year or so, the ADs wife shouldn't be coaching anything. And if I were her, I would have the decency not to coach and would keep a low profile.

The rule is that no kid can quit and play another sport WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE COACH of the team that was left. Everybody talks a good game on an anonymous website. How many of you have actually spoken to the administration or the board? I bet not many. Its so much more helpful to spread your rumors and gossip here, right?

That is a good one. You made my point. Read between the lines of who we are talking about. He better give permission or he is a goner. Makes all of us laugh.

exactly you think Prue was going to start the process on the AD;'s daughter yes right what a farce. AD wife is coaching LAX ? you have to be kidding. She started all the shit with the girls basketball and Callan. I think AD has pics of Nole in compromising position or something on him cause Nole has no balls.Another parent coaching and worse yet the AD's wife. Plenty of people have complained to Nole and he takes no action it is a dictatorship and the board members are spineless all they want to be able to say is that they are NH school Board but are not active in any aspect of NH school and its integrity

I agree that AD must have something on the Supt. I do know there is another meeting Monday night. I have no idea what time. Maybe contact one of the board members on the committee to find out. I do know that only about 15 people showed up to last meeting and about 8 of those were parents of girls on the basketball team. Also .....parents are not allowed to speak at the meeting. All questions have to be funneled ahead of time through Pete Rayhill. Also someone was filming the meeting. I believe it was Ed Waitr who is against anything and everything in NH. I think he has some kind of website. Concerned citizens of NH or something like that. Maybe info is on there.

The jokes on them their actions and arrogance to protect their kids and nobody else's kids has been disgraceful.

Just what I expected.
All posters who don't like what is going on in NH are full of crap. This morning should have been when they could have told what this new committee is all about and shed some light on the subject.

What do we get? Nada.

This committee was organized because of community pressure on Bob Nole and the BOE regarding the decline of NH Athletics under Bob Nole and Pete Alvanos. For over 2 years the a large community contingent has been outraged by the NH Athletic relationship with the community and the way NH Athletics is managed and this isn't some "my kid got cut theirs didn't" deal. Unfortunately the Committee was selected by Bob Nole to include a majority of people that either report to Bob Nole or to Pete Alvanos. Pete Alvanos is also on the committee. Just one member of the original citizen committee putting pressure on Nole to do something was selected to be on it.
As you can read on the NHCSD website, the meetings do everything but address the core problem that was the catalist for this committee - the poor management of NH Athletics by Bob Nole and Pete Alvanos and the lack of action by the BOE. All bs aside, the Athletic Department at NH schools has rapidly run itself into the ground and because of inaction may not be able to recover.
Get on the NH website and read more if you want.

If any parent speaks out against these guys their kids would get black balled from these vindictive self serving jerks!
