vb, Mikey, Gregory, and sean use to come Mtl in the summer, and the 2 older played with us in our City league. For our opening game we had to travel quitey-quite and many guys didn't make it. As we were short(8), we throw Sean in goal, he made 8. Mikey was a lil concerned, saying Sean never play with men before. Ah say Mikey, yuh dun know we go buss this team tail, dey mighten even get a shot on him...
They give we 5 to 0. After Sean feel so bad, every practice, he wha go in goal, whole summer..."Take shot nah ? Take shot nah?" Fellas was calling him 'SHOTS'..
So now yuh know where the confidence came from.

By the way on the return game with that team, we give them 6-0. and won the league. and lost the Knockout final to that same team,"Pincourt" on penalty kicks. I remember clearly cause is the last penalty ah ever kick in meh life. Ah kick 5th, and nearly break meh foot when a kick the xxxking ground, and the ball en even reach the keeper.

Story Palos...hah to show Mikey dah one. So the spirit still existed in your time too.

5885
I have given it some thought, stand by all I said before, and what Palos states. Let the football aspect be handled by the clubs. Let the schools develop education.

5886
Thanks for the contributions, Palos & Tallman. I myself have been really unaware of drastic change in the Mentality of the Intercol environment. I left home in '71, and when I heard 'that word" in the past, I assumed the passion as I left it, as described in that article was what exist.
I have met some very good players from home, and found some of them to be shamelessly Self-centered, but dismissed this to the individual personality, without actually realizing that they were an average product of the changed football culture (even Denzil & Richie at times). I didn't judge them by that trait, as I saw other many good character traits in those individuals. Except on the Topic of Football. I will therefore have to re-think my thought process, and make some adjustments to my ideas of approach and execution in dealing with the Youth level in T&T.  Observer, we go talk.

Bear with the madness ah trying to express, I'm at work and Difficult to get all my ideas down on paper, the Borse keep disturbing  ;D.
 Hopefully we will discuss further in Hartford.
 :P

So the programs should be geared towards the youth, and his experiencing all aspects of the school setting.
 Now in his football life, the youth in Fatima(e.g.) try out for the U14 team and either he make or didn't, bench or played. It goes right up to his senior year.
IN A PERFECT WORLD (baller / Sports)
Scenario 1: He is a good(Gs)student, and star baller. He plays senior. Does some higher studies(Form 6) and gets a Scholarship(Sch).
   
2. He is a good student, and star baller. He plays senior.-> Form 6, no Scholarship, parents afford a Trip to UWI or Foreign University(PA).

3. He is a good student, star baller. He plays Senior. - Form 6. No Sch.No PA. No degree. Attends John D(JD), learns trade or technology. Plays Ball(PB).
4. Good student. Bad baller. ->Frm. 6. or not.Sch or not. PA or not. JD or not.
5: He is a good student, and avg baller. He plays senior. Does some higher studies(Form 6) no Sch. PA.
6. Gs, avg baller. He plays senior.-> Form 6, no Sch. No PA. JD. plays ball.
7. Gs, avg baller. He plays Senior. - Form 6. No Sch.No PA.JD. No ball.

8. Avg s, good baller. play Senior. No frm 6. Sch.
9. Avg s, good baller. play Senior. No frm 6. no Sch. PA
10. Avg s, good baller. play Senior. No frm 6. no Sch. no PA.JD.PB.
11. Avg s, good baller. play Senior. No frm 6. no Sch. no PA.JD.NB.

12. Avg s, avg. baller. play Senior. No frm 6. No Sch. PA.
13. Avg s, avg. baller. play Senior. No frm 6. No Sch. no PA. JD. play ball.Joins club or not.

14. Avg s, avg. baller. play Senior. No frm 6. No Sch. no PA. JD. no ball. Joins Club or not.

15. Bad s, good baller.PS. No Frm 6. No Sch. No PA. JD. PB. No tech. Joins club.
16. Bad s, avg. baller.No Senior, No frm 6. No Sch. No PA. no JD.Joins Club
17. Bad s, bad baller, Nothing. little Future


Yet he has also managed to maintain acceptable passing grades, indicating that he has learned something. He get to Form 5, or 6 and he is a a good student or not, but just miss making the team, only 20 out of 600 selected. Thus the majority left out of the ball.Not good enough to win a scholarship on his own, or he may, but he has reached his final year.

It is that majority I am concerned about. The options available to them. They could fall in anywhere in the spectrum of the society. Thus it depends on what tools we give them. If just push the Ball head, and they are impressionable at a younger age, we immediately reduce their choices and point out weakness, rather than guiding them to thier strengths.
 Not only that, we are taking space in the system with the talented people who have already have a chance,to make a living from ball and telling the majority fend for allyuh self.  I think we should be pushing a "best you can be head" and deal with the lower fallout. The football avenue is just another avenue, and thus the Youth should be made aware of the many avenues available, by encoraging weaker tendencies of allowing fewer individuals to get away with some breaks, that may not even pan out, we are sending a very unclear message to the greater.
That's why I would have gone without Yorke or Latapy.

All true Observer...on the point of it happening in other more developed countries as well... Yet as I stated, given our size, these attitudes have a earlier and more direct effect on our youths than in those larger Countries.
From since my time is a long time in truth, but not everything we did as a People was right, because we is T&T.

Probable detrimental outcomes we are witnessing today, as commented on in the 2nd half of your post.

The questions are what do we want for the future of our Country ? I don't think it should just be (being a lil facetious) "to produce the best football team in the World" etc... that has it's place, but not priority 1.

nb. It's not a matter if I am Wrong or Right, doesn't really matter, as long as we aware that there may be inappropiate decisions/goals that may inadvertently affect our Youths, and therefore our Future as a Country.

Obviously when I look at our crime situation, it involves many young people, as opposed to previous times, so obviously the older guidance has detriorated.

Agree with Observer

5891
All valid points. However, what I am trying to say, is to much emphasis is being placed on Winning, and not fun of participating, or preparation for all things in life....In T&T I found many parents and fans, either termed individuals (relative kids, mind you) as 'Stars', 'Alrite', or 'shithong'....I myself being a Junior athlete constantly heard this from other parents and friends.. to the tune I was quite nervous when any of my family attended a Sports-meet I was participating in... I loved to run and it showed throughout my life..but I dreaded the competition in front of knowledgable people...I rarely lost, but hearing my fellow athlete being berated, was a major turnoff for me, and I am sure them..
I digress, The recruiting for the sole purpose of forming a winning team is a practice that I think is totally against the development of our Youth. A great part of development comes from losing and dealing with, and at the same time understanding that in your efforts, although you have not been successful, that time, does not make one a Loser in life or a 'shithong'.

Our society have regressed to demonstrating, each individual's good ability or talent, by not directing the individual to be the best they can be, more so by being better than your neighbour. To the point where, I see many of our people tries to demonstrate their better abilities, through 'putting down' others. NB. this 'putting down' has evolved from competitive test to all kinds of vicious attacks, violent and abusive, outside of the Sport Arena.

 Most adults, have grown into a world where they compete for posts,jobs, money and material values to prove their success, and these are more evident in small countries like ours. These are the individuals who run our leagues. Thus they in some cases transfer the attitudes they may think for the kid to learn at an eairlier age to be successful.

I think,emphasis should be placed on participation, and experiences of winning and losing, through proper coaching and guidance. As a consequence, I think it is defeating the purpose of teaching the youths, when you deny them the experiences of winning, when winning school teams are allowed to conduct unfair practices, all in the aim of winning. It is unfair to those overly strong teams, and the losers. The real losers then is all of our Youth.

Title: Purpose of High School Sports Revisited
Author: Ramocki, Stephen P.

The intent and purpose of public high school interscholastic athletics is an important topic, having been debated and philosophized, with periodic apparent resolution, for probably a century in this country. However, there is evidence that it would behoove us to revisit the concept from time to time to ensure that the accepted model is in fact being successfully implemented. As with any successful organization, the ultimate responsibility lies within the administration and the policy-makers. However, the practical success of the policies obviously rests with the coaches. I would like to revisit several embryonic, crucial philosophies (with supporting knowledge) which, if implemented, result in successful athletic programs. They are: (1) The main function of high school athletics is to serve as an extension of the classroom, where students continue their individual developments within athletic domains. (2) Every player deserves to be treated fairly and humanely while receiving significant playing time in actual games. (3) Human beings mature at varying rates and their athletic potentials, especially in the early teens, remain essentially unknown. (4) The professional model of athletics, with emphasis basically upon winning, has perhaps only a limited place in public high school athletics.

In reference to number 1, the potential benefits of high school athletics have been clearly established as well as documented. As examples, the May 5, 1999 issue of Education Week reported that the more involved students were in athletics, the more confident they were of their academic abilities and/or the more engaged they were with their schools. Another study demonstrated fewer behavioral problems among athletes. Furthermore, athletes tend to have better attendance, higher academic achievement, and higher aspirations compared to non-participants. Research conducted by Maureen Weiss and colleagues at the University of Oregon demonstrates that self-esteem and perception of physical ability generated through athletics are predictive of achievement behavior, motivation, and positive affect (American Psychological Association, 1996). Sports lift esteem in young athletes (http://www.helping.apa.org/family/prepare/html). In more than 60 studies at the University of Oregon, results consistently demonstrate that self-esteem and perceptions of physical abilities are predictive of achievement, motivations, and positive feelings. Additionally, non-participants are 57% more likely to drop out of school, 49% more likely to use drugs, 37% more likely to be teen parents, 35% more likely to smoke cigarettes, and 27% more likely to have been arrested (http://www.nationalforum.com/whitlyaer10e3.html). A main thread contained in all these studies is that participation in athletics enhances the student's self-concept, which also leads to other desirable ends. Thus, a very fair conclusion is that high school athletics are in fact serving a valuable function when student athletes' self-concepts are in fact positively affected within the entire process.

Regarding number 2, the only way a student athlete's self-concept can be enhanced is through humane and equitable treatment by the coaching staff. Coaches must think of themselves as teachers first, setting aside egotistical notions that they are the masters of their courts and playing fields and will soon be receiving a call to coach at the collegiate level or higher. The problem of attracting qualified coaches aside, successful coaches must view their vocations as a calling - a calling to assist young athletes develop their potentials. Although the win-loss record is most tangible, it has little to do with the far more important goal (which is far less immediately tangible) of developing athletic potential and enhancing the athlete's self-concept. (J. Coakley - The Coaching Role in Modern Sport) (http://www2.tamucc.edu/~kinweb/5310/4sch.html). The only way to achieve this is to ensure that all the team's members receive ample playing time in actual game situations. This does not mean waiting until the score is lopsided one way or the other before granting some playing time. If the major goal of self-concept is to be achieved the coach must demonstrate faith in a player to perform in the critical situations as well. It is only within this philosophy that the proper character and confidence can be established. It is also the coach's responsibility to share these goals with the entire team and to ensure that everyone is on the same page in this regard. There will, of course, be spectators and (unfortunately) parents who will disagree with this philosophy, but that is precisely why the successful coach must be a teacher who has an understanding of the powerful psychological elements swarming in his/her midst. Amongst the conclusions that Mancini, Wuest, and Norton tersely stated in a 1998 study conducted at Ithaca College is simply that as a coach, "You have to remember that you have the power to make or break their day...and that's scary...that you have that power." For anyone with any knowledge of psychology, the realization of the profound role that a coach plays in this entire process cannot be overstated ("A systematic Perspective of Humanistic Behaviors in Coaching." 2001). In Sport in the Twenty-First Century, Lombardo, Caravella-Nadeau, Castagno, Mancini eds. Pearson Custom Publishing Boston.)

Given the less tangible main goal of developing students' characters, self-concepts, as well as athletic potentials (as contrasted to the more tangible goal of winning), how then is the successful coach to know that the job is being accomplished? Ron Belinko, who is the Athletic Coordinator for Baltimore County Public Schools in Towson, Maryland, has developed a simple and effective method to evaluate his coaches' performances. The appraisal process includes three major events: preparing and establishing performance expectations, training the coaches, and assessing the results of the performances ("Evaluation and Dismissal of Coaches," 2000 Conference Proceedings of the National Interscholastic Administrators' Association; San Diego). At the end of the season, all head coaches are evaluated by the athletic director. Assistant coaches are evaluated by a team comprised of the athletic director, along with the respective head coaches. These evaluations are filed in the athletic director's office, the school office, and the office of athletics. The overall ratings range from definite weaknesses displayed/standards are not being met, to good/standards are consistently exceeded as described in the various competencies. Each coach is then placed in one of three categories: satisfactory, meaning the coach should be retained; probationary, meaning that the coach will be recommended for reassignment if agreement can be reached in areas where improvements are needed; and unsatisfactory, meaning the coach will not be recommended for reassignment. This ensures that their public school system has a quality athletic program for all the reasons previously mentioned.

Regarding number 3, a good place to start is with a 1990n study conducted by the Sports Goods Manufacturers' Assocation, that surveyed 10,000 student-athletes. The study revealed that the number one reason girls and boys participate in high school sports is to have fun. Consistently, not having fun was the number one reason they dropped out of athletics. Winning was not viewed as important, being ranked #8 by boys and #12 by girls. Skill development was perceived to be a crucial aspect of fun, being considered more important than winning even among the best athletes. It is intuitively obvious that team members cannot have fun and continue to develop their skills unless they receive plenty of playing time in real game situations. Armed with the above knowledge, it makes as much sense to keep a player on the bench as it does not to let him/her take an exam because s/he is not yet up to par in a course. This is all an important part of the process of becoming and self-development, whether we are talking about the classroom or its extension onto the playing fields. Some tests are given in the domain of the classroom; others are given on the courts or fields; but their purposes are largely the same - to enable students to develop and improve their skills, knowledge, and self-esteems in those environments. Each and every team member should be given ample opportunity to engage in these competitive tests, regardless of the outcome of the games. (This is indisputable at the freshman and junior varsity levels. The next section will briefly discuss a possible shift in philosophy at the varsity level.)

Coaches should know something about human development. People mature, physically and mentally, at different rates. This obviously has been known for a long time. Many coaches think they can predict an athlete's potential in the early teens. They cannot without committing significant errors. Sure, they can see who has progressed to a more skillful level at that point in time; but many mistakes will be made if a coach concludes that the athlete's potential has been reached at that stage. This perspective is somewhat like giving a child a reading test to see if s/he can read. That does not measure potential; it measures achievement. Developers of intelligence and achievement tests have known this for a long time, and it is very analogous to the athletic scenario being addressed here. What one sees is not necessarily what one will get, unless it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy as a result of granting the initial higher achievers the brunt of the playing time. If that is done, naturally those with the head-start will shine. However, that shortsighted, winning-based strategy, will be a big loser in both the short and longer runs, considering what our athletic programs are supposed to be accomplishing. Many student-athletes who have been cast aside by coaches because of immaturity have gone on to be successful athletes, even in college and professional sports, once they matured. One of the classic cases was Michael Jordan, who was cut from his high school team. However, these will be in the distinct minority, as most early underachievers not given equitable, humanistic treatment, are liable to quit the team never to be heard from again. This totaly defeats the goal of high school athletics and we must take every measure to ensure it does not occur. (see Every Kid Can Win. 1975; Terry Orlick and Cal Botterill. Nelson-Hall, Chicago).

Turning attention to number 4, the accepted model of interscholastic sport had (supposedly) arrived some time ago as one of humanistic and empathetic concern for the participants. The coach must involve all the athletes in meaningful ways, with total awareness of how the players feel, subjectively, to play on the team and be led by him/her (Lombardo (1987). The Humanistic Coach. Charles C. Thomas; Springfield, Il pp.49,61). The professional model of coaching, which places winning as the top goal, has virtually no place in the twenty-first century. This model essentially places the coach's needs up front, although there is much rationalization that can somewhat conceal this underlying philosophy. The humanistic model of coaching, with its emphasis on the uniqueness of each participant in a process-oriented and athlete-centered manner, is the only acceptable one in today's high school athletic programs. According to the humanistic model, coaches must not assume that their goals are identical to those of the participants. Research has demonstrated that all too frequently there is conflict between the goals of the athletic leader and those of the performers. Insisting upon an evaluation process which favors the athlete's subjective experience, and rejecting the temptation to rely upon group standards and performances, coaches can ensure that the individual's subjective encounter with the sport is preserved which will become the basis for individual growth and development. Again, it simply is the athlete's imvolvement and positive regard, which should remain the primary concern of the humanistic coach. Humanistic coaches never forget what it was like to be an athlete, although they often have to forget the role models who preceded them. Too many coaches still coach their teams the way they were coached, relying upon their personal, very unscientific, experiences. Even coaches who come from degreed programs in physical education have received far too little training in the art of coaching. In this regard, the professional preparative institutions perhaps must share some of the blame (Lombardo, Bennett. "Humanistic Coaching: A Model for the New Century" and "Changing Sport:The Role of Professional Preparation Programs" (2001). In Sport in the Twenty-First Century; Lombardo, Caravella-Nadeau, Castagno, Mancini eds. Pearson Custom Publishing, Boston).

Is there, then, no room for the winning mentality in high school athletics? Yes, there is; but it has to be artfully crafted and carefully thought out with total regard to what has previously been discussed. Clearly, athletic competitions are not engaged in attempt to lose. Competition implies exactly that - namely to out-think and out-maneuver an opponent. However, it is the process and all the profound psychological and educational implications that surround the secondary school athletic arena that must simultaneously be considered with this athletic competition. There should be no debate that the humanistic model of coaching should be dominant in all secondary school sports, and up through the junior varsity levels the all too typical winning philosophies should be scrapped in favor of development of athletic potential. At the varsity level, it may be reasonable to place increased emphasis upon winning. If this is the case, it likely will mean that a good portion of the team is destined to put a lid upon its further development and self-efficacy, which results from significant engagement in meaningful contests. This is something, however, which should be carefully decided by the school system, and expressly communicated (along with appropriate rationale), to all those involved e.g. student athletes and parents. It is poor management to come to policy decisions through inaction, osmosis, or by sticking one's head in the sand and hoping that things coast along and everyone has reason to be happy. As discussed and strongly implied in much of the above, the domain of high school athletics plays profound roles in students' lives, and it must be attended with all the wisdom and concern given to academic and other extracurricular activities within the school system's purview.

I will end with a question. If we could accurately measure the overall effectiveness of our athletic programs, given the many profound and relatively intangible concepts involved, would we likely end up in the positive, neutral, or negative zone? If we objectively conclude that we are in the positive zone, then we still must ask if it is possible to make our programs better for all involved.

I am the 1 vote no. I will try to express my reason later. It has to do with recreation, nuturing, development and particpation, rather than elitist.
Is the SSFL geared to the production of elite ballers or Tech. school geared towards that production, or providing an avenue to make a living...
 let the players who aspire to be footballers go to school to learn, and join a club to develop that skill..The school process should be geared towards developing the individual for society, now although sports, in this case football, is an important component of a healthy society, given our lack of professionalism, whether due to organization, support or funding... what happens to the baller that don't make it ? what have we developed for society.....Need to organize my thoughts some more, and then will give my personal opinion....Hold-up a little

I would prefer a man with the courage to step down to make room for another if no more progress can be made, than a stubborn man who will fail game after game, make excuses and play his same favourites everyday and make poor tactical decisions.


Then we lucky we not getting 'Big Phil", Gullit, or Bora..Cause it's usually their way or the highway...buh how ah call Gullit name with them men who win stuff boy...
Question : Does it really have a coach who don't have favourites? Plans, Strategies, Players or Ideas ?
On the big scene tho, both Favourites & non-favorites usually produce more times than less.
Contrary to popular belief, I think we have open-minded, knowledgable coaches from T&T, if not in T&T. But alas, again I don't really know everbody, but I know of a few.
