  • I don't see how it matters.

  • It is an indifferent thing. My high school had a female boy's lacrosse and soccer team coach (she coached both).

  • If she knows her stuff and is a good coach then it is a good thing. I have had male and female coaches for all girl teams.......why would her being a woman matter????

  • don't see how it matters

    I was asking this n reference to the previous post about the mom whose husband wanted to coach a HS girls tennis team.

  • It doesn't matter to me as long as both are discret in the locker room.

  • So that proves my point,it seems to be ok for a woman to coach HS boys,but not for a man to coach HS girls. A woman is just as cabable of abusing HS boys as a man is with HS girls.There was a case not too far from me,where a 30-some y/o woman had an affair with a 15 y/o boy.She was a coach.

  • How is that any different than a man coaching a girls team? I had plenty of male sports coaches growing up.

  • Only if she's a lesbian or enough self esteem that she wouldn't give in to the advances and attention of young men. We had 2 female coaches here in FL who were just arrested for having sex with students. I admit they were not coaching boys but seeing them all hot and sweaty and half naked must have done something to these women (not to mention they must have low self esteem) bc they would have these boys come to their house and have at it!
