CAL Parents: Nik, Patrick Schulkers is a currently the men's rowing assistant coach at Cal. He is seriously damaging young children with fear, his actions could lead to emotional scars on these highly recruited men and women. We are writing to enlist your help, to raise awareness with regards to the Cal athletic department. We as Cal parents are disappointed and deeply saddened at how Cal men’s rowing assistant coach Patrick Schulkers emotionally bullies our children. These children come from good families and shouldn’t be bullied by there coaches just to win at all costs. He uses these tactics to show them who is the “boss”. He is very insecure and takes things out on these student athletes. Schulkers is vindictive and perpetuates a culture of fear, intimidation, bullying, and complete disregard for the emotional state of our children. He has made racial remarks to our children, sent messages at 2am for practice times, disregarding that they are Cal students first. Many freshmen and sophomores are terrified to come forward as they fear Schulkers. No matter how many medals are won donors, alumni, and the student body should not be proud of this. This person should not be around young men and women. He is not a leader and they will not remember him fondly or their time at Cal if he continues. We would appreciate if all could help on raising awareness regarding Schulkers. Sincerely, Cal Parents.
