Aggressive coaching under the microscope at prestigious Victoria private school

A joint investigation by W5 cheap moncler and the Toronto Star reveals some basketball coaches at St https://www.moncler-jacket-outlet.com. Michaels University School used obscenities. Two players who were interviewed alleged they were humiliated and bullied.In 2012, a group of parents formally complained that their children on the senior moncler jacket sale basketball team were subjected to swearing and emotional abuse by coaches.In reply, the school administration commissioned several investigations which, they insist, fully exonerated the staff who were accused.However, the students who came forward with the allegations told W5 and the Toronto Star that two years later, the experience still haunts them.“I get this voice in my head of the coaches moncler jackets outlet calling me all these names,“ said Colton Stockus. „Saying ‚I’m the worst shooter on the team,‘ saying ‚I’m not good enough.'“Stockus still plays basketball for pleasure, but his friend, Monty Fraser Brown, can’t even step onto a court.“If you asked anyone, ‚Tell me moncler outlet online about Monty?‘ Probably moncler sale the first thing they’d say is, ‚He loves to play basketball,'“ Fraser Brown said. „And from Grade 4 onwards that was my passion. And they kind of took that from me.“Stockus and Fraser Brown say the abuse from coaches started in Grade 10 as the students moncler outlet uk moved from the junior to senior level.St. Michaels University School (SMUS) commissioned two reports to investigate the allegations. They refused to share the first one with W5 or the Toronto Star.But they did send the results of the second investigation, prepared by John Sanderson, a lawyer.His investigation concluded, „I find no behaviours that were deliberately abusive or demeaning.“However, in his report Sanderson acknowledged that, „On occasion, certain moncler outlet jackets of the coaches became exasperated with mistakes of a player“ and „openly cursed.“ Sanderson also noted that „the use of swear words and other expletives during games or practices should be discouraged by coaches and players alike“and that „coaches must set a positive and better example for the players and they should curb the use of foul language.“But he also said, „The majority of the students said they were not offended.““I thought it was a whitewash,“ said Goldberg in reaction to Sanderson’s report. „And cheap moncler coats his implication was that really the reason why the athletes who are complaining were complaining was because they couldn’t handle the transition to higher level basketball.“Sanderson declined a request for an interview. However, in an email he wrote: „My Report was based solely on the facts given to me by the athletes themselves in lengthy and private interviews with each of them. I am moncler outlet store confident in the accuracy of my report.“Some parents and players were upset about the quotes in the report from anonymous students which referred to „nasty lies“ and „a few players and parents are moncler sale outlet trying to manufacture evidence of abuse.““I cannot actually believe that a school would accept it and worst of all the school Headmaster who had interviewed these kids face to face with the Chaplain present, that he would publish that document was to my mind an moncler outlet sale act of cyberbullying,“ said Monty’s mother, Jennifer Fraser. At that time, she was a teacher at SMUS.In August 2012, frustrated by cheap moncler jackets sale what she viewed as the school’s dismissal of her son’s complaints, Jennifer Fraser filed a complaint on behalf of herself and other parents with the Teacher Regulation Branch. She also quit her job at the school.“The whistle blower has to go at all cheap moncler jackets times,“ she said. „I would have lost my health and my sanity if I’d remained there.“The results of the investigation didn’t turn out the way she or the other parents hoped.A request for an interview with Preston was refused by the TRB. „The commissioner does not speak to the specifics of individual cases due to restrictions placed on the disclosure of private information.“The school, however, provided heavily redacted copies of the findings.Clean copies obtained independently by W5 and the Toronto Star reveal the blacked out sections detail specific allegations like, „The coaches yell comments such as, What the f are doing, and, You are all f terrible.“Preston had the option of sending the complaints to a disciplinary panel, but after looking at the evidence in each case he ruled, „I have determined to take no further action with this complaint.“In the case of Ian Hyde Lay, a well known teacher who had coached Steve Nash in the ’90s, the judge noted that, „Mr. Hyde Lay has used obscenities,“ and „The use of profanities in a school setting is inappropriate conduct.“However, Preston concluded, „A [disciplinary] panel may not find the conduct constitutes professional misconduct because the preponderance of evidence is that the swearing was not intended to be heard by students.“He also found that the behavior was „not inherently abusive, bullying or unwelcome“, on the basis that „most students and parents did not observe anything cheap moncler outlet wrongful or inappropriate about Mr. Hyde Lay’s conduct.“ Moncler Outlet.
