Questionnable Youth Leaders

first_imgMore and more youth athletic leagues are running into problems by hiring a coach and finding out later he has, or is, involved with unlawful behavior of juveniles.  Most of these leagues do background checks, but these individuals seem to be able to hide this behavior quite well.  With school systems hiring more and more lay coaches, the school administration is opening itself for a possible bad hiring choice.  In most small communities the school system stays with individuals who have shown over a long enough period of time to be just as safe for the children as school personnel.  No one can be 100% certain today who might be lurking out there just waiting for an opportunity.  As you have seen, teachers are not immune to this type of behavior either.  For the most part, the lay coaches are dedicated volunteers who only have the young people’s athletic development at heart.  Without these people, school systems would not be able to keep their athletic program afloat.  Due to sheer numbers of volunteers needed and the increased number of dollars not available to schools, the school administration cannot afford to pay certified teacher rates for all coaching positions–especially in intermediate and middle schools.  Some of these individuals actually volunteer their time.  Many thanks to them!last_img read more
