    First of all the score to the Kiser/Guilford MS game was 50-37 instead of 49-37 and for the record Tarius Hilton had 19 points and John Puryear had 12. The KMS and the AMS game on Monday should be a good one.

    I spotted Greensboro Day’s girl’s coach at the Northwest Guilford/Allen middle school game yesterday. Wonder who he was recruiting? Probably the little point guard from Allen. She is a great athlete. Best athlete on the court but still needs skill work. She will be really good if she keeps working.

    GDS doesn’t recruit though. Their coach just happened to show up to watch probably the best middle school point guard in the city play. Just a coincedence.

    Jake,
    GDS is a private school and can recruit if they want to. Why make an issue of it? Other schools in their conference do the same thing, such as Christ School. So does Westchester.
    Also, contrary to what many would like to think, there are lots of Guilford County parents who approach GDS and try to get their kids in there for the academics, as well as the athletics. Many times when GDS coaches are observing middle school kids, it is because the parents contacted GDS.
    Either way, explain what is wrong with that.

  • Jake said,

    It is against NCISAA rules to recruit for athletic purposes. If the parents contacted GDS about attending school for academics then the admissions person or a math teacher should have been at the game, not the basketball coach. If it is for academic reasons why would he be there? Is their admission to the school based on academics or how well they play basketball? Did he need to check her out before the school would admit her for academic reasons? I know private schools have to recruit STUDENTS but it is against their rules to recruit ATHLETES.

    If a parent decides to send their child to GDS for academic reasons there is no need for the coach to see the child play a sport. If the parent is sending them there for academic AND athletic reasons and the coach observes them play and GDS doesn’t want the kid and the parent then doesn’t send the kid to GDS then the parent was not interested in sending them for academic reasons. Think about it.

    Just because other schools do the same thing doesn’t mean it isn’t unethical and breaking their athletic association rules. The only school in the area that can do that without breaking any rules is Oak Ridge. They aren’t in any state athletic association. The ironic thing is the NCISAA won’t let them in because they recruit athletes.

    If a private school coach is out watching kids play, it is hard to believe that he is not recruiting. I am sure they have better things to do with their time than watch middle school girl’s basketball.

  • wake up - Jake said,

    Sorry Jake but you are wrong with what is happening at GDS. They do not “recruit” athletes. If a family shows interest in their kid coming to GDS, then the coaches will eventually show up at a game to see what the kid can do. Remember that nearly 80% of all GDS students play some type of sport from track, soccer, basketball, softball, swimming, etc.. Everyone cannot make specific teams such as the basketball team and any parent coming into a situation such as this needs honest feedback from the coaches in advance. No one wants to spend $15-18k per year and find out later that their kid is not ready to compete against the players that are already in place.

    To answer your question about the teachers – GDS has a required placment test that all potential students must take before they are accepted into the school. GDS encourages each new potential student to visit with subject teachers, parents of kids, other GDS kids, and yes the coaches for sports of their choice.
