If your teen plays sports please give me some insight!
17yo DS is on the varsity soccer team. New coach this year. New coaches rules are that every player (20 on varsity alone) gets playing time every game. So this means even if my DS were to be a starter he only gets to play for 10 minutes & then has to be subbed out. He plays maybe a total of 30 minutes (not consecutive).
Every game he comes home pissed off. He says that it's like once he gets into the groove of the game he gets called out. And then it takes a few minutes for the new players to get into the groove & then they are called out. I honestly don't think the team has won any games yet this season (they have 4 more home games before tournaments- IF they make it that far!). I know they have tied a few though.
It's just very frustrating to see you son, who has lived his whole life (since he was 4) for soccer to get to the final stretch (possibly a soccer scholarship to college?) & not be able to play for more than 10 minutes at a time his senior year.
