I know when my kids have gone on school sanctioned overnight trips, there is a parent and student meeting regarding behavior which will not be tolerated.
PArent will be called to retrieve their child. Kid signs it parent signs it.
Alcohol
Drugs
Are the TWO deal breakers. If caught you are done/suspended/loss of all activities including sports.

Kids know it, they sign the notice they were fully aware of consequences.
If said kids knowingly break the rules, some perhaps already 18, and some close to it, what do you expect?

How can you blame a coach for what the kids did. Nobody put weed in their bags, nobody forced them to do this. They chose to do this.

Now they have to live with the consequences.

This is sad. No parent should be happy these kids are in trouble. I feel much sympathy for them and their parents. I know in the high school my daughter attends kids smoke pot daily during school day it's awful they should be suspended. But why kick them off a team? Let them sit out at games watching their team during their suspension.

Let them attend drug lectures because the larger concern should be that they understand kids are dying from laced drugs. Let them use their free time to volunteer in programs for younger kids in their town pal programs.

But I would cry also if I was the coach cause he is probably sad that these boys are being used as the example. kids are making these poor choices everyday everywhere but punishment could be better by learning to correct what they did wrong without damaging a young mans future.

never argue with idiots. first they drag you down to their level and then they beat you with experience. thus; I wont debate you.

try reading the entire post before you blast off; reading comprehension is a must.

"support" as in understanding the need to address these issues at the familial level and in academic institutions. It was once said "It takes a village". No one parent can undo the pressure of peers as time has shown again and again. We can only hope to keep them between the lines when they are with us and hope even more so that they are being properly protected, even from themselves, when placed in the care and responsibility of others.

What I don't get anymore is why coaches do not punish players who get something as simple as detention or give teachers flack. Life lesson. Players who miss a practice and Lets not forget those vacations that wind up in the middle or during the season. You go away you don't play. life lesson. Not all schools had their easter break and will have it during Passover. YOU DONT GO AWAY WITHOUT repercussions. YOU DONT GET IN TROUBLE WITHOUT repercussions.

You only learn by yes sitting out, don't kick them off the team, but ban them for a few games make them watch and run the [lacrosse] out of them, make them learn. They slip up or give any lip run'em. Make their teammates step up (they'd have to if they were kicked off anyway) and if the teammates step up maybe they loose their spot naturally spot is lost.

Hopefully if they are truly remorseful and learned something, they will stay and make the team stronger in the long run, if they want to just quit because they cant take it let them, let them show their true colors.

Maybe I am to old school but that is how you do it. It is not how you fall down but how you get up.

The HC must take the brunt of the responsibility in this case. Yes, parents should have could have done better and are suffering as a result; but the players are under the wing of the coach.

This coach has a long history of mentally beating down players. He has poor interpersonal relation skills. The result of this over the years has been for the players to show him as much respect as he shows them. There has been a loss of honor and values that stem from coaches instilling these virtues into his players and the players having pride in displaying the same.

The parents of this town sit huddled quietly and do not want to rock the boat as this coach has positioned himself as the gateway to college lax and expects the masses to bow down to him. And they do. His draconian practices are tolerated only as they have come to accept him as the savior.

It is time for this HC to come under review for his abusive ways. A psychological evaluation is not out of the question either.

Too many players have been subjected to this "crying" abusive person.

His tears I am sure are for himself and how much his image has been tarnished. He cares not one iota for his players as people nor does he take up the charge to be a true leader as one would hope and expect. His players would collectively put him through a wall rather than run through one for him.

Time for change. Drastic change.



Very well said. The iron fist in GC starts with the HC and his "club" program. Everyone is afraid of repercussions.

The word is many more kids left that hotel room right before the AD caught them. If that many kids were involved, and it was that apparent what was going on in the hotel, the HC did nothing to stop it and I would believe was ignoring the issue. The fact the AD was there made this come to light.

Let's get this straight, the Coach or his staff caught the offenders. That shows that he was doing his job and he did not sweep it under the rug. Sounds like he should get a pat on the back for having integrity.

I do not think that was the case, the AD caught them.
