SENTINEL TRIBUNE EDUCATION Wednesday, January 26, 2011 Page 7 Notes.... By Leo Theism Athletic Director Greeting from the WWG athletic department. The winter weather has not been coop- erating with the athletic schedules lately. Hopefully the weather allows us to complete the scheduled games. We are close to cancelling any non-conference games to make room for the conference make-up games. There is about one month left in the winter seasons. It was great to see a nice crowd at the "Coaches vs Cancer" event that was held at the boys basketball game last Friday. Coach Jenniges did a nice job of organizing that event. Our TMBANWG wrestling team took third place in the Plum Creek wrestling tournament at Tracy last Saturday. Troy Schoenenberger and Levi Brummer wrestled on the varsity team. Levi finished the tournament off with a quick pin of his opponent vs MCC/Fulda. The following list of suggestions was recently published by the MSHSL: Being a Good Sports Parent * Make sure your children know that win or lose, scared or heroic, you love them, appreciate their efforts and are not disappointed by them * Try to be completely honest about your child's athletic capability, competitive atti- tude, sportsmanship and skill level. This can be difficult for a parent. * Be helpful but don't "coach" them on the court. Don't inundate them with advice, pep talks and instruction. * Teach them to enjoy the thrill of competition, to take physical bumps and come back for more. Don't say winning doesn't count because it does. * Don't re-live your life through your child. You fumbled, and you lost as well as won. Help to calm the stormy waters, but let them handle the navigational problems. Help them learn to handle and enjoy life. * Don't compete with the coach. Your child may come home and chatter on what "coach says." If disenchantment about the coach sets in, some parents side with the child and are happy to see the coach shot down. Instead, it should provide an opportunity to discuss how to handle problems, react to criticism and understand the necessity for discipline and rules. * Children tend to exaggerate, both when praised and when criticized. Temper your reactions to tales of woe or heroics. Investigate, but anticipate that the problem is not as it may appear. * Understand courage, and the fact that it is relative. Some of us climb mountains but are afraid to get into a fight. Others can fight without fear but turn to jelly if a bee approaches. Nobody escapes fear and that is just as well since it often helps us avoid disaster. Courage can mean doing something in spite of fear or discomfort. * Communicate often with your child and with the coach if needed!!!! News from the MSHSL Next month the MSHSL will announce the new section alignment for the next two years. WWG's enrollment figures combined with the free and reduced lunch figures will put our new number at 136 for grades 9-12. Two years ago we were at 169. The new number should bring us back down to class A in baseball & softball and back to 9-man in football. (Free and reduced lunch numbers are used by the MSHSL because studies have shown that there is a small percentage of participation from that group.) The football conference is considering the option of allowing SWU, Fulda and RCW into the conference for 2012. Lincoln HI has also expressed some interest. The goal is to form an East and West division in a 14 school conference. A meeting is set for late April to consider those options.
