Coaches aren't allowed to say there's a difference between a varsity player and a JV player?? And "newbies" shouldn't get to play even if they're better than the "upperclassmen who are leaders of the school"? And coaches should mourn over players who want to quit on their teammates and the program? Man, I'm glad I retired - I am apparently unfit to coach in this day and age.Or....the team, the team, the team. Shouldn't really matter if they are starters or not or JV or not, if you have more than a couple people who've invested half their high school careers or more leaving a program and you're happy to try and make a state championship run with a few studs and a team full of newbies, or worse you have coaches not caring that upperclassmen who are leaders of the school are leaving the program, than yes, you probably have a culture problem. Coach K (soccer) and Coach P of (basketball) run programs on totally opposite ends of the value system spectrum...not sure I've ever heard Coach P divide his program by starter and bench (or even JV or varsity), yet he has girls wanting to stay and play for him who could go elsewhere and contend for a state championship every year. That's where its at.
