Always good to see a fellow choir member lol
The "cons" will only be solved in the future when more girls are participating. Hence the boy/girl wrestling problem. With the perspective of girls wrestling as a astigmatism "wink,wink" with most.
There are several daughters nieces sisters and so on that will sadly never get the chance to participate in such a great sport. Most of the girls that wrestle with the boys have "gotten over it" as a possible sexual harassment unless the boy is just bein stupid. You just have to check those kids at the door and not allow them around the girls. That goes for coaches too.
With 1 female asst coach or none for that matter, imagine the challenges and limitations of a male coach working with one or 30+ girls. You can tie up elbow off and work arms and shoulders, knees, ankles but then you stop and play charades. Thats all you can do. With the girls from a single girl team and no female coach what the heck are they supposed to do?
I cant wait for some of our recently successful and experienced girls to come back and give us a hand! But the last yrs state participants were also "not allowed" into practice with this yrs girls, its gettin pretty tight and I can see how and why that will happen at some of the other schools when the numbers go up.
Hey, its because of frivolous law suits that the cost and liability of everything we do in our public and personal lives gets a double take.
My contractor insurance liability premiums went up over 1000% in 5 yrs with no claims because of stupid people wanting something for nothing!
Which makes me understand an AD's position over sexual harassment suits in a given sport.
Being exposed to an industry full of sue happy people I do know the pain of it!
Thanks Max for another opportunity for me to ramble/vent again hopefully not aimlessly.
