CA HS Soccer Players Face 10 Counts in Hazing Incident – La Puente High School

“Noose Around Neck” Hazing Incident on High School Football Team Leads to Five Suspensions, Possible Expulsions

Is this a case of some teen-aged boys just messing around, or are there darker motives behind this incident?

A hazing incident possibly involving a noose is being brought up in front of a Mid-South school board.  School leaders in Wynne, Arkansas are talking about whether to expel two junior varsity football…

SUNY Geneseo Cancels Women’s Volleyball Season After Hazing Incident

Assuming SUNY has done all the proper investigation into this incident (the police have filed charged after all) we say “good for them.” In the past, many colleges have investigated these types of incident and found any excuse possible–including ignoring their own hazing police–to avoid having to admit they have a problem like this at their schools. They go to great lengths to explain how something like this incident at…

Dance Team Suspended for Hazing at Florida A&M!

Regular readers of this site will remember the name Florida A&M: less than a year ago a member of the marching band died as a result of hazing incident on a bus and since then the program and school have been thrown into a firestorm of controversy . . . mostly because there had been a series of similar incidents over the years and the administration had done little, if…

Victims Claim High School Jock “Hit Them With His Penis” During Year Long Hazing Events

July 27, 2012

Is it really hazing when an older teammate repeatedly tries to stick his finger in your anus, grabs your junk or makes you grab his over a period of almost a year? How about if someone pulls his own pants down in an elevator, jumps on your back and beats you with his penis? We suppose it could be, but if the charges against Browerville High School (MN) athletes, Seth…

UPDATE: Suspended Ogden Cheerleader Talks to Local TV Station – And basically talks out of both sides of her mouth. On one hand, she says the whole “getting blindfolded and pelted with condiments in the park thing” is way overblown. The victims knew–or should have known–what they were getting into. On the other hand, according to suspended senior cheerleader Hailey Lawrence, she actually thought the whole hazing thing was a…


Another HS Incident: Mom Says It’s Not Hazing ‘Cause No One Got Hurt – Bridgewater-Raynham

Note to Parents: You don’t get to decide what’s considered hazing at your kid’s school and what’s not. Same goes for coaches and the athletes themselves. Just because YOU don’t think it’s hazing, doesn’t absolve you of wrongdoing. In this case, the mother of a wrestler at Bridgewater-Raynham High in Massachusetts, Pamela Pace, who told The Brockton Enterprise that her son, Stephen Pace should not have been suspended for the incident…

Clover High School on Broom Handle Incident: No Hazing Here, Nothing to See, Move Along

How many times have we seen this? An incident occurs in the locker room, all initial indications are that it’s some kind of sports hazing (in this case, threatening to sodomize someone with a broom handle) the school responds strongly (at first) and then they investigate and it turns out to be . . . nothing. Okay, not “nothing,” but according to the local prosecutor boys “acting like 17-year-old boys.”…

Canuck Hockey Hazing: Players Forced to Drag Plastic Crates Across Rooms by String Attached to Scrotum

Who thinks of these things? Really? The best way you can think to tell new players “Welcome to the team!” is to allegedly force them to, first: do a striptease dance judged by older players, and then, second: walk naked around the locker room with plastic water-bottle crates tied by string to their genitals and dragging on the floor. To make the task even more difficult, according to reports by…
