Terrible job by schools and sections on scheduling around the ACT this year. Why are players forced to miss games when they know well in advance when the ACT's are scheduled. Move the games to later times or don't schedule on that day at all. Only happens 1x or 2x per season. Terrible.
This type of situation should cause people to pause and ask themselves:
1- What message is a school district sending by scheduling a meaningless game to conflict with an ACT? Shouldn’t their number one goal be to educate our children?
2- Any high school Coach that encourages a child to play the game instead should be held in low regard and questioned as to why he is a teacher.
We all have choices to make in life and schedules aren’t always aligned with our priorities, the choices we make for our children send strong messages to them.
