GICAA members

Posted: 10/23/2013 12:42 PM

GICAA members 


So Thomas Jefferson has joined Nathanael Greene as official members on the GICAA site, www.gicaasports.com.  Who is next to jump ship?  Figure most, if not all, ICSGA schools will be football playing members of GICAA.  Says on their site now that 8-man and 11-man football coming in 2014.

GISA, as always, have their head in the sand. Its time to be proactive or the GISA's days are numbered. I am sure more schools are going with them. TJ is not leaving without a group going.

Agree! Chuck made a good decision to leave, as bad as I wish they didn't have to.  But he did make the right decision.  He will be followed by more schools to leave.

A general unhappiness with GISA administrators. The final straw for many is a fear that the GISA is going to two classes, meaning the current A schools will be at a pretty significant competitive disadvantage.

Re: GICAA members 


From looking at the list, I wouldn't think a school any larger than Thomas Jefferson would benefit from leaving.  I realize that many are upset with the GISA, with the recruiting situation, playing down a league for start ups etc.  The GHSA has the same problem with teams (especially in Atlanta) recruiting ALLSTAR teams.  The players "rent" an apartment, list a relatives address as their address, or come up with some other reason to change schools.  The GISA should not put restrictions on a student participating in sports because he transferred from a GHSA school.  The lifeblood of many private schools is getting students from the public system.  Could you see a senario where the GHSA said that a student from another organization could not participate?  As has been stated by some of the more knowledgeable venters, a school that brings in a large percentage of their players in their junior or senior years will yield a team lacking developmental players from the B team ready to play.  Unless a school is willing to continue to bring in new players every year, the long term outlook will not be good.  Continued success results from developing players from middle school up through the system.  Back to the GISA situation.  My guess is the other league will not be very competetive.  The grass is not always greener.

I know some of the schools considering the move are doing so for more financial reasons than anything. Travel for the Atlanta area schools is becoming prohibitively expensive in the GISA. The GICAA offers much less travel.

Re: GICAA members 


If records are correct TJ and Chuck are a complete opposite of what you say.  Tj has won two championships and been in several other championships under the leadership of Chuck.  He shouldn't have to step up, if a school has an enrollment that is classified as "A" then there should be no stepping up to be in "AA".  The most overrated coach in GISA has repeatedly won games year after year.  When were things not in his favor? And you may think GISA is better without him, but by him making the decision to move, there will be others schools to follow him.

I have a hopefully non-confrontation question goodword. What does it really matter to you if TJ, NG, JH,DEA or any school for that matter, leaves the GISA? Just seems like to me that it would be a non issue to you.  If you don't want to answer here, you can PM me.

RE: GICAA members 


I'm not gonna gripe or complain about the move but I do wonder about the relevance of both leagues now that so many are leaving GISA in the uoper and lower division. I'm sure in time the GICAA will gain some respect and the GISA will go away, but both are basically going to be regarded as flag football leagues and that will negatively affect any kid that may have the talent or desire to play at the next level. Will the new league have track, baseball, and basketball? Will teams play other sports with dual membership in both leagues? How does this affect other sports? There is more to life and athletis than just football. Does anybody have the answers to these questions? And goodword is just a good fan looking out for his team yall give the brother a break. I try to take something from other people's prospective if everybody could let the kids play the game, the coaches coach and find a way to do and act in the best intrest of the independent teams this could possibly have been avoided. A wise man once told me if you're not part of the solution then you're part of the problem. There is still time for a solution I assume???????
