: : : : : : : play in the Century Tournament and The Damien Classic this week ? CIF violation ?

: : : : : : : Confirmed in two tournaments this week. AD new about this and did nothing. Should have to forfeit games for scheduling over the allowable number of contests. New coach knew he was in Century Tournament and still entered a fourth tournament. FV Basketball is still a joke.

: : : : : Just curious. How were they planning on playing in 2 tournaments during the same week anyway? Playing a double header every day and hoping there was no time conflicts? Sounds insane.

: : : : rumor is they may send JV kids. total joke. totally unprofessional. but that's what you get when admin starts drooling all over yourself when a club guy with a relatively known name applies for your job. may know ball. may have contacts to get talent. But no clue on how to handle the nuts and bolts of day-to-day operations- hence scheduling a 4th tournament and having 2 on the same week.

: : : : Principal and AD know nothing about running an athletic department. As said earlier, whether or not they send JV team to Century, they should have to forfeit games. Truth said it best when stating club coaches have no clue how to run a high school basketball program.

: : It's not even so much backing out of one tournament and entering another, it's getting phone calls and emails for months ahead of time and refusing the professional courtesy of returning the call or email. It's an AD not holding the new coach accountable for the schedule that was put in place before he got there, especially when/if there is a signed contract. When you take over a program in summer and the schedule for next season is already made- if you want to make changes, you do that right away. Otherwise, you play the schedule and then make a different schedule for the following year. Is the Century Holiday Classic "beneath" Fountain Valley? Well, they're not a better program than Newport Harbor, Valencia, or El Modena and they're on par with Westminster, Brea, Segerstrom and Fullerton.. is Damien a more high-profile tournament? Sure, but let's not get FV confused with an elite program.

: And by the way.. according to the OCVarsity schedule (not nearly what it used to be), Fountain Valley is playing at 5:30p at Bonita against La Canada and also at 7:30pm at Century v. Brea Olinda.. what a mess

Welcome to the future of high school basketball with AAU guys leading programs. The Cali Rebel program has emerged on the scene the last couple of years and now have head coaches at Foothill, Westminster, and Saddleback. The guy at Fountain Valley comes out of the Compton Magic program. Both AAU programs are considered to be on the better side of the "grassroots" basketball business. However, running a high school program is a whole other deal. Ultimately the athletic director is responsible to make sure his new coach is scheduling correctly and should not be signing contracts for conflicting events. Nor should an event be scheduling a team without a contract for that event or game. This is unprofessional on the part of Fountain Valley and possibly the events they are entering.
