Just went and watched the 7th and 8th grade basketball games and it was sickening!!! Jot sure if their coaches are instructed how to coach from the high school coaches or not but I just don't understand why they have to dribble around for 2 minutes before trying to get the ball inside to get a shot which usually results in a turnover!!! LET THEM SHOOT THE.BALL!!!!!!

Lol what do you expect? These are the same kids that played on their own little elite team at the Y and whose parents push them into athletics with the backbone being win at all costs. They don't learn the basics when they play against teams they can easily defeat each week. The result is moving on to middle school teams and losing.

to bash on all sports? 1st. game of the season and you already are an expert on coaching skills...then step up and be a volunteer coach and give them your "expert" knowledge! oh, wait, that would require you getting off your ass instead of sitting in front of the computer putting ppl down.

Grow up!

So you went to watch some 13 year old kids play basketball and promptly decided to post on topixs about how "sickening" it was to your sophisticated basketball awesomeness? And of course we need to whine about elitism at the stupid y!

Pathetic much?

its obvious you have no knowledge of organized sports. its called delevoping a program.....they start in middle school to be more successful and delevop for varisty hints...instructions from high school coaches. school ball has nothing to do with Y BALL. nice try though. that is just plan uneducated comment.

Don't even have kids, just go to a game and watch. It is about the kids not the coaches and these coaches don't respect these kids. Let them play don't constantly yell or look like fools. This VW team has no team unity so change it up

Maybe you should go offer all your coaching knowledge. I am sure they would sit down with you. It is probably easier to go on a public forum and criticize.

I over heard Mark Bagley's dad talking here recently that they didn't want to play some of the local teams. Now if you believe me why don't you ask his dad. his name is Ron Bagley.

The comment by joe fri. Is true. Sad to say. Delphos St Johns was 1 of them. They forced them to play at vw again this year or wouldn't play them. Sad but what do you expect from "District Dave" and the rest of the loser vw board and admin.

Where did all the 'Bring Back Keith Noftz' folks go?

At least he didn't stomp around like a four year old if his team had to go up and down the court more than once without gettin to shoot free throws.
