We were talking about this yesterday at another post and I thought we might bring it up front today to see if anyone else had insight on this subject.
Here’s what I was asking:
If I am a coach, can I not make a respectful comment to a player saying, â€œI wish I had a couple of players on my team like you and your brotherâ€, and it not be a recruiting statement?
It would seem it could be considered a comment of praise or respect and it would then not be considered recruiting. Maybe a bit naive here, but letâ€™s all be honest, what can you say or not say to a student-athlete that borders on the lines of recruiting and do we have a Guilford County Athletics Handbook with the listed by-laws that we are supposed to follow?????
On another subject within the academic realm, I have heard of teachers at one school that have sent their children to another school within the cross-over boundaries of a school district.
The reason given was that the school the student was in, was considered an at-risk discipline school and that the parent/teacher wanted their child to attend what they considered to be a safer school.
This came my way back in September of 2008…..
