I totally agree with you that the volleyball coach did do a good job! My point with bringing that up was to show that the admin wants to punish her for discipline issues with her team. So how could that be when we have issues in other areas that do not put those certain coaching jobs in jeapordy? My feelings, just like everyone else's stem from my own values and beliefs of how not only a program but student athletes need to be guided and expected to display themselves and their behaviors to others. Especially the young athletes that look up to them like celebrities. The coaching staff, need to be clear about what is expected of them and what will happen if they do not abide by the guidelines layed out for them. Bottom line is, yes sports are about winning. That's what makes everyone love them. But there are bigger things to be taught and learned by participating in any sport and in any position. Teamwork, respect, confidence, reliance, dependability, punctuality, focus, training, trust, and so much more.  (Dec 31, 2012 | post #7)

Sorry to burst your bubble, I have no personal investment in any of the high school teams at this point. Keep trying! Lol  (Dec 31, 2012 | post #6)

ooh. Hit a nerve. First, yes I've witnessed practices and to say discipline occurs there. Well, I guess to each is own but we must have different definitions for the word discipline. 2. No, I have no issues with any of the kids. You are right when you say they are just kids and kids make mistakes. My point is, if the team were more disciplined they would they have more respect for their actions, others, and themselves. That falls on the coaching staff for not enforcing consequences. And if you were smart enough to comprehend the issue about tobacco use that I mentioned. You would have interpreted that I felt the Admin and coaching staff should have taken action. Now I as a parent want to know that any adult hired to teach my children, hopefully are going to teach them right and wrong. If they break a rule, then they need to pay the consequence. They are not above following rules. That needs to be enforced by the adult in charge. You see, I'm saying it falls in the adults lap not the kids. I know a lot of morons out there like to assess and assume they know how others are feeling and thinking. But guess what, what I wrote is what I meant. That is how I feel, no hidden agenda or feelings. You know what assuming does? You use the word assume, and think, and seems like. Make sure your info is a little more concrete before u make yourself look like an uneducated idiot! :)  (Dec 31, 2012 | post #3)
