Of incompetent coaches and mishandled sports funds
CONCERNED PARENT, Baguio City

The recent Milo Little Olympics reminded us of a previous issue concerning the incentives of student-athletes.

I am a supportive parent to my kids who were part of the Special Program in Sports basketball and swimming.

It is disappointing to learn how the SPS head teacher of one of the biggest secondary schools in Baguio has treated and mishandled the funds and opportunities of our children.

First, for almost a decade the school is known for winning and receiving cash prizes but our children do not get any decent material from these winnings. We hear numerous talks how they manipulate the funds and even gamble inside the SPS office during office hours.

Second, despite the support on sports of the new but outgoing school principal, this sports chairman acts like a superior to other head teachers and ironically, does not promote sports in and outside the school.

Third, he gives preference over incompetent individuals by ignoring committed and good coaches and allowing them to be removed from the coaching staff.

I’m not claiming that all coaches are incompetent but the parents know who and how the real coaches are.

We know that this letter won’t make any changes since he and his group can make excuses and blame the present school head. But hopefully soon, the new one can make some changes.
