Cap Times Talk on high school sports

High school sports are a focus of community life in Wisconsin, but how is that role changing in an era of elite club teams, brain injury concerns and education reform? Stories of coaches and referees burned out by overbearing parents and obnoxious fans are in the news, but are those problems any worse than in the past?

The Cap Times has assembled an outstanding panel to discuss all of those questions at Memorial High School, 201 S. Gammon Road, on Tuesday, May 8. News Editor Jason Joyce will moderate the panel, whose members are:

David Bell, director of the Wisconsin Injury in Sport Laboratory

Eric Bertun, Big Eight High School Conference Commissioner and director of operations for Capital East Soccer Club

Will Green, co-founder of Mentoring Positives, Inc. and the La Follette High School girls basketball coach

Alex Mundy, coach of Nemea, West High School’s girl’s Ultimate Frisbee club team
