  • Private Coaching on Public School Grounds

    I've noticed private (for profit) coaching happening on public school grounds in Frisco with coaches tying up facilities that are open to Frisco tax payers. I've asked whether the coaching is for profit and have been told plainly yes including rates. They claim they pay $100 a month to coach anytime on school grounds and have priority over tax paying citizens to use the facilities. This seems like a load of BS to me if it is true. Does anyone know the policies for FISD for this type of thing?

    Can you give us specific examples? It might help get you an answer.

      Happens ALL the time and its a hallmark of top programs - especially 6A.

      Check out Performance course.

      Many of the varsity coaches "require" varsity players to attend these programs in the off season. It allows them to skirt the rules about extending off season practices.

      Heck some private coaches are on the sidelines during games.

      Wake up man HS sports is BIG business.

        Hell, if its going to happen then the ISD should charge them WAY more than 100 bucks a month. Add another zero.

          If you look at the Allen High School athletic facilities during the summer you will find football players from a number of area high schools attending Allen's off season programs.

          Allen High School coaches and other coaches they bring in make some really good money during the summer.

            Here is what FISD charges for facility usage-

            As a mom of a Frisco HS football player and having one gone through 3 years of Frisco Varsity football, I can GUARANTEE you there are no "private coaches" on the sidelines. No head coach would want or allow that! Even when college coaches come looking to recruit, they sit in the stands or watch practice. As far as off season, they "strongly recommend" the Strength & Conditioning program offered in the summer and they do 7 on 7. Anything else is up to the player/parents.

              As far as private coaches on the sidelines let me say this, the ability of the athlete will dictate the rules of engagement. It is not unusual in 6A for star QBs to have their private coach on the sideline especially in pass oriented schemes (Frisco HS is NOT pass oriented). If you are 5 star recruit - the rules ARE different. Maybe no coach in 5A or a less than competitive team would want that in their program, but in top 6A programs 5-star athletes and their parents write their own rules. Like it or not, this system of entitlement continues through college as well. Does it serve the athlete - no, but that is the reality.

              As far as charging more for athletic programs to use FISD facilities. Charge more and they will pull up the carpet and take the program someplace else hurting FISD schools athletic programs. These private athletic programs produce results and results dictate the rules.

              How important are these programs?? Take a look at the list of Schools on Performance course. You'll see Barbers Hill listed?? Why would a smaller ISD in South East Texas be pulling a program based in Dallas? Well the Coach from Allen that has 4 6A State championship rings on his hand relocated from Allen to Barbers Hill. These off season athletic programs are CRITICAL to developing the depth needed to compete at the State Championship level.

                And my response to that would be, good, take the programs somewhere else. Too much emphasis on football and 15 year old NFL stars.
