Phargis,

 

I know who you are, but I won't blow your cover.

 

I just kind of stumbled into this forum and got a good laugh, because you were the only one that had posted anything here.

 

I hope you and your family are doing well. I haven't seen you in a while. If you see me at a ball game, holler at me, so I can say hi. I see that your granddaughters are doing great things in sports. I bump into Leo from time-to-time and try to catch up on things.

 

Catch you later. :angry:

D, felt lonely down here for a long time and thought I was talking to myself and i was. T allowed this Site to be added but with the contingency that it would be a 12.00 site bacause he really did not know how many adults would post and didn't want just MS er's posting. I still think that a site for MS Volleyball would work although you can't prove it from here. It really is a bargain. Only costs $12 a year and get the opportunity to post around the Web site. This is one of the most informative sites that a fan, player can have. newspapers read it, other teams read it, students read it, fans read it and can't say everything is productive but a lot is. it is enjoyable and productive. Send T $12.00 and see how enjoyable it can be.

P,

 

I agree that the $12 is worth it. I became a plus member a few months ago and it makes the entire website much better.

 

Give it some time and I'm sure more and more middle school folks will be getting on here.

 

I appreciate all of your efforts on Coach T, you do a great job of getting some discussion going.

 

I hope to see you at a game some time. I don't think siegel has played Eagleville in any sport yet? Do you recall?

 

Later

Okay, so it's almost time for Fall Volleyball again. Maybe we can get a middle school discussion started...

 

How qualified is YOUR middle school coach? Our local middle school struggles mightily with this -- we had an experienced coach who was stretched to her limit, had a teacher (no experience) take over, got pregnant, coach took it over again. Again, stretched to her limit, a science teacher (no experience) took over for one year--quit--a special Ed bus driver took over (no experience) for one year -- now original coach is back again. This REALLY hurts our high school program because of all the incoming freshman who tried out, only about 3-4 made the team with only one who can make an immediate impact. Of the 6 freshmen LAST year, one played varsity immediately, 2 have quit and will not play this year, one of the remaining 3 will play varsity this year.

 

Why is it so hard to find someone to coach in Middle School? Do we need to find someone to do a MS COACH'S camp?

PFK, there are a lot of ways to generate interest in MS VB, in my opinion, all of which are common sense and carry with them a LOT of recognition. In my opinion, the main thing is to involve 4+ people, all of which have a main thing to do if the program is a success. The first two is the High School principal and the high school coach. The third is the MS Principal and the fourth+ are some parents who have a definite interest, front line, in the program. Once a Coach is selected, a lot of recognition needs to be provided. The HS coach needs to provide help and hold a MS coaches clinic for prospective players. Making sure that the MS's attend the Tournament that Cumberland University provides every year would help a lot. i believe there are some 18 schools that attend the tournament. Yes, a MS Coaches camp would be good and Cumberland might help with that. You would be surprised howmany good coaches show up at the tournament. Someone is doing a good job with recognition and support.
