I'm having a few issues here...
I'm just finishing my Junior year and I finished my 3rd year wrestling. I've been a heavyweight all 3 years and Varsity the past 2. My freshman year I had a coach that I really liked, though he wasn't the best. My sophomore year I had 2 really good coaches that I liked and helped me get a lot better. This past year, my team got 2 brand new coaches that nobody on the team liked and did absolutely nothing for us bigger guys (189-HWT). I ended up teaching 3 people how to wrestle (they had zero experience) and basically being their coach. I'm seriously debating not going back to wrestling next season due to the experience of this past season.
The main event that ruined our team this year was the coach being too violent. Our wrestling room has two short walls near the doors for safety reasons and the coach threw one of our freshman over the wall. This coach has basically been a nightmare for the team and actually pushed people so hard that our team went from 40 people at the beginning of the year to 16 after CIF masters.
Basically what I'm saying is, every year we get new coaches, except for next year and I don't want to end up coaching again my senior year. As of right now, I'm not going back but I love wrestling. It's helped me through so much and done so much for me. I don't want to leave it just because of 1 person but I'm afraid I won't get to enjoy my last high school season.
Does anybody, please, anybody have any advice?
