As Christmas break approached, the team faced what was going to be our biggest challenge of all. Due to his new job, our coach now took the title of “assistant” and we were given a new head coach. The coaches were, and are, good friends, but have totally different coaching styles. The first was laid back and carefree with a great sense of humor, which made him well liked by everyone he coached. The new coach had a reputation for being arrogant, strict, and having a no-tolerance policy when it comes to joking around. Because of this perspective some girls held of our new coach, many were upset with the change. After we attended a tournament over the break, however, the girls realized that they had been wrong about the coach and he was just what we needed to help us achieve our goal.
On Sunday Aug 7th during Colt World Series there was an issue with some of the “Teammates” using chalk both outside or Loeb Stadium and inside the corridor of Loeb. Valerie Berry had stated that she talked to the group and advised to them that this was not allowed and that they were going to have to stop and clean the affected areas. I am not for certain who she said she spoke to with at the time. Before the conversation between Valerie and I, I observed two “teammates” drawing right outside the main entrance to Loeb stadium. I approached the girls and told them that there was no use of chalk permitted with any of Lafayette City Parks. The young girls then asked me what the issue in chalk was to the parks. I advised that my Boss Security Coordinator Tom Rankin did not like the presence of chalk because it promotes other types of graffiti. One of the girls who was still activity drawing at the time ask me if she would be able to finish what she was drawing at the time. I told her that if she really wanted to finish it she could but, the chalk was going to have to be cleaned off either way. She advised that she understood the instructions that I gave her.
One of the top sporting events in the world is considered to be the NCAA March Madness tournament. This tournament is ranked third just behind the super bowl and FIFA World Cup. It’s unbelievable to think that one of the top sporting events in the world is in college athletics. You have other professional sports like basketball, baseball, hockey and NASCAR, but there championships still don’t compare to the NCAA championship. March madness is so popular that global firms Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc believe that companies are expected to lose about $1.2 billion because of every hour of work that employees are watching games instead of working (Koba, 2014). These employees will spend on average 90 minutes a day at work watching
It is imperative that if I made a bad call, according to the rules and regulations of the game, that I step forward and correct the mistake immediately. Once play resumes, it is too late and tempers in the stands start to boil. Often times, I question my judgment on plays or penalties, but in absence of replays, I must stand by my judgements.
In the duty to the little league it was to watch over the teens who plays under the team he manages. However, in this situation he handed supervision over to his assistant coach Daniel to watch over the teens while he talks to a parent of one of the children who play on the team. The initial start of the incident was the team horse playing around while under the supervision of the Daniel, but the incident was allowed under the supervision and consent of Daniel not the consent of Wes. So he did not breach the duty of supervision when he transferred the supervision knowingly left them with an adult who had authority over the children as much as he did. Leaving Daniel to supervise the team while Wes talks to a parent of a child on the team. An initial determination he was leaving the children in great care. Having Daniel watch the team is what cause the incident. The cause of this could not have been predicted since the coach had plenty of experience with the teens and for numerous of year of coaching
I am an at-risk coordinator in the high school. I am also the high school cheerleading coach and the assistant softball coach. Although, dealing with high school students, you have the occasional squabble, I have a good relationship with each of the students. Four years ago, I had a memorable clash with my assistant principal. It all started at a basketball game. We were playing a team that did not bring their cheerleaders. I had told the girls they could cheer for the first half of the girls’ and boys’ games, then sit and watch the second half of each game. We have done that for years when our school plays this particular team, because they never bring their cheerleaders. The assistant principal had recently been hired at our school, and was approximately four months into his job as Assistant Principal and Athletic Director. The next day at school, he called over the loudspeaker for all of the cheerleaders to go to the gym. Not knowing what was going on, I went into the gym with the girls. He proceeded to chew the girls out for not cheering the entire game. I told him wait a minute, this has nothing to do with these girls. This was my decision and I will gladly go behind closed doors and discuss the issue. He said no, this has everything to do with these girls. He continued to yell at them and I told the girls to say nothing that I would handle this. I defended the girls in
As a parent or guardian of the player, I understand that I will do my best to make the players follows all rules stated above. I will not contact coaches regarding playing time, player's position, or team strategy at any time. The only reason for me to contact the coaches would be regarding the player's health or well-being, as well as the player's academics.
We spoke on Friday regarding the issue that surrounds the Dexter Cheerleading Squad in which they are not being allowed to go participate in the state cheer competition. The reason that they are not being allowed to participate seems vague in my opinion as I explained to you during our Friday conversation. The superintendent of our school district claimed during a parent meeting on 1/25/18 in which at least 5 parents made appearance, that since the job posting for coaches stipulated that it was a sideline cheer only, the cheer squad would not be allowed to go. When the question was asked, if any school regulations or policies existed that specified and backed up her decision, she claimed that none existed. Hence, that her athletic
As a nonprofit the NCAA is often not compared to large companies even it makes comparable revenue. All television and video game revenue, as well as ticket, jersey, and souvenir sales made from college athletics all go to the NCAA, the conferences, the athletic departments, and the coaches. In fact, one study suggests, “Men’s basketball and football combine for $6 billion alone” (Mondello, Piquero, Piquero, Gertz & Bratton, 2013). None of that revenue goes directly to the student athlete even though the NCAA surely has enough money to do so if it chooses. USA Today writer Bruce Horovitz states in his article, March Madness Evokes Marketer Madness that, “The NCAA men’s basketball tournament generated $1.15 billion in television ads in 2013, well beyond the revenue generated by the NFL and NBA playoffs, according to ESPN” (Horovitz, 2014). Marc Edelman, a professor at City University of New York takes it a bit farther in his article The Case for Paying College Athletes, and claims, “The college sports industry generates $11 billion in annual revenues. Fifty colleges report annual revenues that exceed $50 million. Meanwhile, five colleges report annual revenues that exceed $100 million” (Edelman, 2014). In contrast, during the 2014-2015 season the NBA grossed about $5.18 billion in revenues according to Forbes Magazine, which was a league record high. The NCAA revenue money is also not evenly distributed among the schools, as top tiered athletic programs tend to make more money
I didn’t think it was fair for a fifth grader to make varsity when she didn’t put in the effort, simply because her older sister was also on the team . I didn’t find it fair that we were placed on the lowest team and we tried as hard as them if not harder, we were as good as them, if not better, and we came to every single conditioning, practice, and meeting. Yes, I know I was given the option to leave if I felt this way, but I was determined to show them that I deserved to be right along with everyone else. Through tears, practices, games, extra workout sessions, additional batting cage time , and many arguments with my mom over the stress softball was causing me I was moved to freshman. I felt so accomplished, yet still unamused by the fact there were fifth graders dressing varsity. I don’t care to admit if someone is better than me but, they weren’t. Simply because they had siblings on the team or knew a coach personally they were placed on varsity. Fifth graders who came to about one week of conditioning moved up because of unfair circumstances, and in the end it created an unpleasant environment and negative energy over the
Hence, I ranked him as number four; he was very unprofessional, because he was motivated to tell not because he was looking to uphold the school’s policy, but, because of his hatred towards the game. Furthermore, Dr. Cameron was ranked number five on my list. Dr. Mullane stated in this week’s video, that if she was not to return our calls or emails in a timely manner it would be rude or in considerate but not unethical(Mullane ,2015).So, with that being said she didn’t do anything unethical, it was just rude that she didn’t respond in a timely manner. Furthermore, Coach Johnson was ranked at number six; he was very unethical with his decision making. Coach Johnson knew the policy, but advised Dr. Wallace basically to ignore the policy and standard for the school. Coach Johnson also lacked integrity in this
An increase in the number of reported instances of parents engaging in abusive, violent, and controlling behavior toward coaches,
I am deeply concern with certain demonstrations of misconduct that I have observed on my children (Especially on Frank Jr.) from quite some time now. I have observe my children beat each other in a violent way, hitting back adults when they are reprimanded for wrong doing, and desperately crying and hitting doors when they are put in timeout. In the past I received oral reports from some of your employees that the kids were hitting other kids and they were put in timeout for this kind of behavior. Coincidentally, once I try to contact the mother to work together in implementing a discipline plan to prevent this kind of attitude, the reports of misbehavior from your employees disappeared. Moreover, the mother have always avoid responsibility and she has played a game of blaming me back by saying things like: “The kids are in perfect psychological condition, they are very happy and they act accordingly to their age and gender ,ask them at the daycare, they will tell you, and you insist to say they have a behaving problem , which they don 't , If they are not acting right when they are with you, look yourself in the mirror and see what you are doing wrong and fix it.”
