: : : : Why is this allowed to continue

: : : Best article ever! We are losing great coaches every year because administrators refuse to back their coaches. I had 2 players who were bullying 2 freshman players to the point these kids were crying. The players who were doing this were the top players on my Varsity team but that did NOT matter. Made it worse actually. I benched them for a game and the principal came to me with a school counselor and told me they felt what happened was “ not bullying” and told me I could not bench my players. That was the last straw. I coach to make better young adults on and off the court. The parents are allowed to attack coaches , verbally abuse us, and there is NO support. It has gotten out of hand. The players and parents know they have the control! Great article. I am sorry for these coaches who have lost their jobs . I do not think it will ever stop sadly.
: : This writer nailed it. Loved the comment about players having a personal trainer and playing on the bronze team. I think it is ironic that the bronze and silver players think they are gonna be discovered and get a free education, but what they are really doing is paying for the gold team’s players’ education. And to fire a coach mid season to appease unrealistic parents is embarrassing.

: can you post the text? Thanks...
