More on Bethany

Just some thougths from some comments I received in my last entry!
Sorry I don't remember who said WHAT...

But one about the 911 dispatcher and staying calm, She is real close to Bethany she loves Bethany the most out of all her daughters friends, it was dark at the time and she was just as scared as I was! BUT she was calm when she got here to the house it was just that first call!She seemed scared. She is a good person.

I went to Bethany's practice last night because I was told I had to sign a accident report, When I got there the Head coach or so called director of the squads when I asked about the accident report said there wasn't one, another AC (assistant coach) looked at me and rolled her eyes... She was in the middle of filling it out, (I didn't know that and the eye roll was not at me) When the Head coach walked away I told the AC I thought there was one and she said there is, then she made a comment in so many words that the HC was a bit ditzy. She said she was filling one out now!
The HC changes the rules as she goes along... She told Bethnay's coach that any girl that misses 3 games is out for the season, Bethany's coach says to the HC "your daughters have missed 4!" She changes the subject... It's ok for her girls but no one else! If the girls NOW are 5 minutes late to a game they use to have to sit out the 1st quarter, NOW they are not allowed to cheer the whole game if they are late!
She said next yr she is going to split the squad up into 2 parts one for games and one for competitions... UMMM some girls (Bethany) Wants to do both!
She told Bethany's coach that girls that are late to games will be written up, Bethan't coach reminds her that her daughters are late and she changes the subject!This HC is getting on a lot of peoples nerves!

Bethany went to practice last night and the girls gave her a card! They were talking again at one point and the the teen AC told them they had to do push ups and Bethany pipes up CAN I DO SIT UPS? and the AC said YES. DUH! That girl never came over to me once to speak to me! AND Bethany got the spirit stick too! I have not seen that thing put once the whole season!

This morning Bethany went to school and about a half hour later she got a balloon bouquet delivery from her squad! She will be excited when she gets home!

And WOW I didn't realize that a buckle fracture is the same as a break the DR didn't explain that to me! Her one little friend keeps telling everyone that it isn't a break, when someone would ask Bethany her friend would answer for her!

I will check out that one web site and read more about the type of fracture Bethany has! Thanks for leaving the link in the comments in my last entry!

That head coach sounds a little questionable....

It's hard leaving your kids in someone else's care! Hope Bethany heals quickly!

I am really sorry that Bethany has had this happen to her. I can tell from reading that you all have drama too. There is soooo much drama on Katy's cheer team. It's just nuts. So sweet the girls gave her a card. I hope Bethany is feeling better and not hurting. I'm sure she is more hurt over being out for a while. I know mine would be.

SO sorry to hear B got hurt...one of our dancers has a "buckle fracture" too ..I've never heard of one!

Bill said...

Sounds to me like the Coaches leave a lot to be desired. I'm sure Bethany will heal properly and quickly. I'm sorry that this happened but, it sounds like the other girls are giving her a lot of support. My Regards, Bill.

Shaking my head about the HC. Really sweet that her squad sent the bouquet and had a card for her. I'm glad she's met some good girls to be friends with. WOW about running in the dark and tripping....... A young girl in M's former squad broke her arm in season, and she stayed doing what she could! Good going to Bethany for hanging in there.

If that head coach is acting like that with a lot of parents, maybe they'll get rid of her. She doesn't sound too competent to me.

Christy said...

I'm praying for Bethany as she heals. I think I'd put in a complaint to the athletic director at the school about this head coach, who seems to change the rules every 5 minutes. She needs to have typed up rules at the beginning of the year and stick with them and if her own children break them...off the team they go.

head coach sounds like a jerk but at least Bethany's not giving up. If she ends up doing competitions maybe we will end up meeting. Emma's doing comps too for her squad.

Wishing Bethany a quick recovery! It's always hard when our kids get hurt and coaches...well some can be unreasonable, her's sound like a hard arse!

Take care now,
Rebecca

I just read up all of Bethany's ordeal and you should totally get a lawyer! A pipe? AND a coach who sends you on a lap in the dark! Sheesh! I hope she heals fast...

be well...
