: : : : : : : : : Too many coaches going too far. One thing to push these young ladies to be physically and mentally tough but too degrade, be little and down right bully is a problem. Why donít some of theses schools hold the same standards for the coaches as they do the fans and players. Poor kids canít fight back and if parents step in coaches hold it against the players.
: : : : : : : : I feel coach bashing coming soon by a parent should I dare to ask whatís up.
: : : : : : : : No bashing just facts. What is crossing the line?? We suspend kids for cyber bullying and give time out to little kids calling other names but coaches yelling in faces of young girls threatening them, saying personal things to damage self esteem what kind of stuff is that? Not to mention a coach thatís part of the faculty. Iím all for pushing kids , benching, and yelling if need be. But because your a washed up player thatís unhappy because your program is bad donít take it out on kids that canít protect themselves. If they dare say something to anyone they may be cut or further humiliated
: : : : : : : Was a little bashing in there I admit
: : : : :
: : : : : : do you feel better some coaches when they yell to the players they feel better as well. I have not meet a coach that did not have an ego I wish they used those ego's in their personal life but they seem to check that out outside the court.
: : : : : I was expecting names.
: : : : : I have seen some coaches get wild and get in players faces but when your picking on defenseless kids thatís bad. Yellimg to feel better is fine but choose your words. Run the kids pull them out of a game but do t take your miserable life out on kids. This coach is a coward and should not be allowed to work At a school
: : : I have seen Coaches sit, not yell and never raise their voice and then fans complain they're not really a Coach, then I've seen Coaches do the exact opposite and then they're declared a bully. You really can't win as a Coach, there's always going to be those hating on you no matter what you do.
: : We some weak Ass parents nowadays tell all your kids boys and girls a "Yes Coach" means a whole lot of things my kidsget yelled at and I ask my kids deep down were they wrong 99% of the time. Some coaches do trip but teach the kids to bark a "YES COACH" they will not get rode.
: If you have to yell and scream at players as a coach you are not getting through. Change your methods. You can help make a player tougher for life skills with methods of respect and sportsmanship. We have players who listen and do their best because we respect them and most importantly LISTEN to them. Every day we have 5 minutes at practice where while stretching we simply ask three questions and then get quiet. These young people are amazing and smart if you let them talk and learn to speak up appropriately.
: Our teams are respected for how we respect others including players, coaches, referees, fans and school staff.
: Earlier this season we had to play a very good team that was way better than us. What bad experience as their fans were taunting us (we couldn't find an admin for their school because when we got there we had to search for restrooms for example). Their coach said two words to us the whole time...good game after beating us plus 40 points pressuring whole game. Very sad that there was a family with probably elementary school children sitting there watching them pressure and steal and lay ball up even with 40 point lead. They saw that bulling is acceptable. Hopefully their parents told them it was wrong.
: We had a game we could have won by 40 plus and we won by 20...starters get more rest, reserves get more playing time. We go with respect and sportsmanship. If you like to play us get in line as we always have a full schedule because of the way we respect people. We are no heroes, simply playing the game and conducting our selves the way ALL teams should. Good luck the rest of the season.
At a lower level game this season a prominent program program was up by 25 points at one point in the 4th quarter, played only 7 players out of 16 on the roster, was complaining about officiating despite the scoreboard, and never called off it's press. Would you want your kid to play for that program?
