Disturbing Video Begins Local Discussion
Shocking video out of Denver, Colorado is really getting attention here in the Treasure Valley and across the entire country today.
You may have seen it online or even in our local news and no, it isn't easy to watch. In fact, I couldn't even finish watching this video. The video shows teenage cheerleaders literally crying in pain while coaches force them down into positions their bodies clearly aren't capable of being in, such as the splits.
As a former high school athlete in Boise, I know that nobody ever voiced concerns within the Bishop Kelly community and even among friends and competitors at other schools. If anything I have grown accustomed to hearing how respected coaches are in our area.
Is this a concern of yours for our schools, locally? Do you feel like your friends or kids are honest about what goes on during their activity practices?
