In my opinion, it is a Varsity Sport so they should be playing to win.
The opportunity to play everyone and get equal time to see if they are any good or to give everyone the same opportunity to see if they like playing should happen at the Middle School level. If it is not offered at the Middle School level, then on the Freshmen team or Junior Varsity team.
Once they reach the Varsity team and made the team they should be playing to win.

Around here, the mentality is "play to win" starting at the freshman level; the junior high mentality is a bit more focused on skills and learning the game. What I personally wish the high school coaches would do is adhere to the eligibility rules (maintaining qualifying grades and abiding by the code of conduct rules) - too often, these infractions are simply ignored because an athlete is a star player and the coaches are too focused on "play to win" or division and state championships.
