And in May of 2010, the New London Day reported a Bacon Academy softball coach and two players from Montville were arrested after a fight broke out. Lt. Leonard Bunnell said the fight stemmed from "something that has been brewing for a while, fermenting on Facebook."
"It makes it so easy to communicate to the entire group as opposed to relying on the old phone 'chain,' Hand boys' basketball coach Frank Rossi said. "I've seen coaches post schedules, changes in schedules, inspirational/motivational quotes, stats and other things."
"Just found out there were 5 kids in the hospital Friday night from ND getting x rays. I guess it has to be 10 this week, to be 1," Elm City Newspapers reported Murphy posting.

focus on topics that are hot and current, and pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve," said Fred Balsamo, who heads the Connecticut Coaching Education Program. "Social media is blowing out of control."
Shelton's Brian Gardiner and East Haven's Jim Reynolds are among the coaches who said they do not use social media.

But that's not always the case. Some examples?
Fairfield Prep hockey coach Matt Sather says he doesn't use social media to communicate with his team either. The Jesuits have a team website and Sather posts information on it.
While the CIAC talks to coaches about social media, the Southern Connecticut Conference discusses it with student athletes during its Captain Council program. Before each athletic season fall, winter and spring captains from each sport from the league's 22 schools get together. The discussion includes leadership, along with other topics like social media.
One message posted on the head coach's Facebook account, or the captain's, to a move or cancelling of practice, is quicker than making a dozen phone calls or several text messages.
"We try to insist that our players and parents use these means to communicate practice times/changes in scheduling or commonplace issues regarding our program only," Le Coq Sportif Dynacomf Trainers
Said Reynolds: "You are talking to a guy who just turned 56. I deal with people face to face and maybe a little bit of email. This stuff is concerning to me. My message to the kids is don't get crazy, don't say stupid things because it gets to everyone. It's a whole new world with this stuff now. You can't hide anything anymore."
"You need to embrace it," said Carbone about social media. "The conversations are always productive. We tell our students, take a second to think about writing something. Once you post it, it's live. You never know who is following you. On the flip side, you can use it in a constructive way."
Looking for a high school football score? Use the hashtag ctfb to get up to the minute results from around the state on Twitter. The Register learned of former all state MVP Kastine Evans' commitment to play women's basketball at Kentucky through Twitter, too.
Sources told the Register Cheshire volleyball coach Sue Bavone was suspended for one game this past season by the school for inappropriate comments she posted on her Facebook page about Amity coach Paul Thees.
It's that last reason using social media for trash talking among other things why Dinello and other coaches dislike it. It is nearly impossible to control. Anyone can sign up for a Twitter account, then use it as a verbal weapon while possibly hiding your true identity.
"I try to stay away from those things because I feel like it opens too many doors," Gardiner said. "I just feel like with those things, it bites someone sooner or later with everything being so public. . I know that players are friends on Facebook with players on other teams and players may follow each other on Twitter. It opens the door to trash talking, but we haven't had any problems at this point."
But Sacred Heart Academy director of athletics George Bedocs says his school does not allow coaches to communicate with players through social media or text messaging. Instead, the school has an email system designated for coaches and players to communicate.
SCC commissioner Al Carbone says it's critical.
Said Rossi: "When the communications reaches beyond 'basketball team business,' you get into a dark area. Too many players and coaches have gotten themselves into trouble with comments that become too personal. Players have a venue to bully one another, hidden beyond their keyboard."
Jim Dinello, in his first year as boys' basketball coach at Lyman Hall, addressed social media during a preseason players/parents meeting.
Social media both good and bad in high school sports
This past football season, Xavier senior Ryan Murphy expressed his displeasure on Twitter after the Falcons dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 in the Register Top 10 poll after beating Notre Dame West Haven.
Welcome to the era of social media. It continues to grow, even in the world of high school athletics. These digital age communication tools open the door to countless possibilities, but with both upside and downside. They have become so big and common the CIAC is educating high school coaches about the trend. All coaches are required to take a CIAC Coaching Curriculum module every five years. Beginning last March, those courses included social media and how to teach their players about it. The 3 hour unit on electronic media covers the do's and don'ts for everything, from Twitter and Facebook to email and text messaging.
"Anything that can be regarded as negative or inappropriate is not acceptable and players or staff members who engage in such actions are subject to team discipline if it is discovered that they have used poor judgment in this regard," Dinello said.
In some ways, it simplifies and is beneficial. Many teams have Facebook pages to promote their program. Others have Twitter handles to post game times, scores, cancellations and related news. Sarullo said.
Dinello said. "The benefits are obviously that messages can be delivered quickly and most have access. The drawback is that so many feel the need to use social media for the wrong reasons, which spreads like wildfire."
"There have been instances of some players on my team posting things on Facebook and it is something I have had to address in the past," Lyman Hall hockey Supra Shoes Red And Black coach Tim Belcher said. "However, I do tell the players that they need to be responsible for everything they do (including social media). We do not have any specific rules, but the players need to know how much of a slippery slope the social media can pose. All it takes is one bad picture or message, and a player's career in high school could change forever."
