Reinstate Coach Greiner & Let Us Play at Home Field
We, the parents, family, and athletes of the West Charlotte Football team are writing in response to the suspension of Sam Greiner in his role as Head Coach. Any evidence against Sam Greiner is not justified in his suspension and we are calling for his reinstatement. We are also calling to be able to play on our home field, which was promised for this coming school year 2022-2023.
We believe this decision made by West Charlotte was rushed and lacked consultation or consideration of student-athletes and parents, entirely disregarding the group of individuals most affected by the decision. This action was not only taken unnecessarily abruptly, as there has been no proper investigation into the allegations against Coach Greiner. The suspension of Coach Greiner also comes at a challenging time for our student-athletes. Our children lost the majority of the coaches they had trained with and formed bonds with. Understand that having Coach Greiner has given the players comfort of familiarity. This suspension is causing turmoil within the players and causing them to be sure of themselves as they approach their first game. They need their leader, as you can see from the signatures below that leader is Coach Greiner.
On top of the stress of losing their leader, the players were promised that this year they would be able to play on their home field. The players are now told this is no longer an option due to parking issues. It is unclear why this parking issue only affects the football teams while every other West Charlotte team home game will be at West Charlotte.
This neglect of the sentiments of our collective team is overwhelming and regrettable.
By signing below, you show unity and support for this petition and request Coach Greiner’s reinstatement for the 2022-2023 school year.
We, the parents, and athletes of the
West Charlotte Football team request that you consider how this will affect the
team. We asked that you give us the opportunity to speak our truth and meet
with us before making any decision that can affect the future of the West
Charlotte Loins Football team.
