KHS Soccer vs. Football

A father of a couple players called me last night. He told me that the High School Football team, one that works out on the FOOTBALL field, and one in which the Head Coach has a current valid permit, was NOT ALLOWED ON THE FIELD last night. They were kicked off by a youth soccer camp that could not play on the oval field since it DRIZZLED.

Now let me understand this. A youth soccer camp, with OUT OF TOWN kids, taknow g y High School students? Is this correct?

I understand the Assistant Recreation Commissioner, who played SOCCER -- and the Athletic Director -- who coached SOCCER made this decision, but are we really allowing this? Can this be? EXISTING KEARNY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS KICKED OFF THE HIGH SCHOOL FIELD? There MUST be an explanation for this.

Did this camp have a permit? Insurance? This father was telling me that a football camp was denied a couple years ago. Now they let a soccer camp take place. And then one wonders why there is animosity between the students of the football teams and soccer teams.

THERE IS NO LESS THAN SIX YES 6 SOCCER FIELDS IN TOWN. (Franklin, Harvey, Oval(2), West Hudson, and Manor Park.) plus there is this new turfed "footsall" at the bottom of Afton. There is ONE Football field until September, then they turn Vets Field into a football field for the Generals. AND WE ARE KICKING THE FOOTBALL TEAM OFF THAT ONE TEAM.

Now there are at least 200 total football players in town at any given time. That would be a possible 400 votes. then add all the ex-players and football fans in town, hhhmmm -- that is quite a lot of votes! Enough to turn the tide of an election. Do you hear that Mr. Leadbeater? Help us! I think it is time to organize and speak up!

If this father listened at the meeting where this was discussed he would have heard that this should not have happened and that it was a mistake and that if it were to happen another time that the coach was told,by BOE members who attended the Booster Club meeting, do not, I repeat, do not get off the field. If football has the permit, the field is yours. Did this father neglect to tell you this? This was a mistake, a big one, but still a mistake. It is done with and everyone should move on.

Hey Raggety. Stop trying to create an issue where one doesn't exist.

It was an adminstrative error. Both permits were accidentally issued for the same field at the same time.

Yes he did tell me it was a mistake.

I am not trying to start an issue here, I am trying to ADDRESS an issue here. It seems like the Football Program in Kearny High School is treated like Steerage class passengers of The Titanic. Maybe if we further look into this "mistakes" would not happen in the future.

In addition, with all the upgrades in town, why not fix Veterans Field so there can be just a second Football Field in town? As I stated, there are SIX -- yes 6 Soccer Fields and only one football field. This does not seem equitable to me, and something should be done about it. I understand Kearny is known as a "soccer town" but there is room for a successful Football Program.

Immediately after posting this I read in a Town weekly where they are fixing Vets Field. That is great!

What I didn't like was that it was going to be for Soccer too. Why not leave this field just for Football?

Here you go again everyone. This person and the so called father are tthe same one who make trouble for football. They will not give up until they are inn control of everything. No use trying to reason with them because they won"t listen !!!!!!!!!

Well, there are 8 indoor gyms in town with full basketball courts in them. And a couple half courts. There are 3 outdoor facilities as well. I would say Basketball is in the best shape, and that's why we don't hear them crying! The only one crying is a woman who lost!

WHERE ARE THESE COURTS?? THE ONLY ONE AVAILABLE FOR THE PUBLIC IS MANOR PARK. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ABOUT THE OTHER TWO. They took down the baskets at the oval and Belgrove drive.

You can't count basketball courts inside the schools that are used for rec teams only. WHAT GOOD ARE INDOOR GYMS (inside the schools) IF KIDS CAN'T USE THEM. We need outdoor courts where kids can go anytime to play! Years ago a lot of our playgrounds had courts in them! Kids could just grab their ball and go play!

Overnights will never be allowed by any group at KHS unless they go to an actual camp. It is a health violation. If you don't believe me, call the Board of Health and speak with Mr. Sarnas.

A couple of interesting items. #1 Kearny High School Football has played 7 of it's first 8 games against NJ Play-off bound opponents. 3 of those teams are currently undefeated. That was some schedule set up by the Kearny A.D., who was on the Football scheduling committee and assured the KHS Football Program their schedule would not be as tough. #2 There was supposedly a huge brawl at a soccer game last week, fights both on the field and in the stands. No school suspensions or any disciplinary action by the BOE taken at all. Yet 2 of the better Football players were suspended for the season for doing something wrong, one of the reasons given becausethey had gotten in a fight at a soccer g ame 2 years ago. interesting. #3 Kearny A.D. has consistently cancelled JV Football games and even forgot to schedule a freshmen game one week. Yet soccer games are always added and any rained out games are always assured to be made up.

But again, there is no prference between the sports according to the Town, BOE, and KHS Administration. Yet here is a link of a Kearny preview by an independent site

, saying Kearny is a well coached team in a predominately soccer minded community

JV football didn't have enough of players until recently. Had nothing to do with the AD>
