Coaches Suspended For Purposely Losing Tournament

MURFREESBORO – Coaching responsibilities of two Rutherford County girls basketball coaches were suspended Wednesday, four days after their teams purposely tried to lose a district tournament consolation game.

“Good athletic coaches possess skills that maximize the players’ skills, strategize winning game plans, instill self-discipline and impart the value of teamwork to reach a common goal,” Rutherford County Schools director Don Odom said in a release. “Players also learn skills that build integrity and character, primarily by how their coach models before them. In these last two areas, we failed last Saturday evening.”

Are Youth Sports Evil?

are-youth-sports-evil

Very interesting article – see if you agree

Little League is immoral.

And, furthermore, all youth sports are bad for our kids and nearly every team our children play on is run by criminals.

If you were exposed to enough coverage this week in the wake of the Jackie Robinson West scandal, you couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the demonization of sports.

It’s not the first time. It will not be the last.

This pops up every now and then, and we should neither be surprised by the disgraceful behavior of a few nor the absurd overreaction by those who have never understood the benefits of sports in the lives of young people.
