Snow Days

January 13, 2014

As you know, we have had a lot of snow days already this year.  Previously, we knew what happened to the school days–they had to be made up.  This year may be an exception because of bitter cold.  However, my concern is from the coaches standpoint.  How do I get in my practices?  When I was the head coach, this was much more simple to control.  The principal simply said “if you can practice without causing undue danger to the athletes, go ahead.”  This meant that except during the blizzard we normally got our practices in.  Some times we had to do it minus a player or two because of where they lived.  Today it is not that simple.  First of all, the school corporation is liable for anything that happens during a school scheduled activity.  This means that they could be involved in a law suit if a student was involved in a wreck on the way to practice.  Who knows what might happen if someone were to get hurt on their way to or from practice today.  Lawsuits were rare in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, but now they are common.  The school system might even be sued if a son/daughter doesn’t make an athletic team, so who knows what might happen from an accident or injury.  This means that most of the schools in our area have had as few athletic practices as they have had school days.  This puts a lot of pressure on coaches whose jobs depend on wins and losses.  Until the present climate changes, no one can afford to take a chance.
