Unfair Basketball Tryouts
Basketball Court Picture
My daughter tried out for the 8th grade basketball team. Since last year she has played on a club basketball team and even played up a level.
I like to think I am being objective of her skills. I really expected her to make the A team. Her basketball coach didn’t even have her scrimmage with the A team.
The high school varsity coach came in, pointed to all the big girls playing on the B court and they went over to play with the A team. None of these girls even picked up a basketball from last year. The teams were already picked obviously.
There is a lot of political stuff that goes on in our basketball program. Who plays with whom. Whose older sister is already on a team. Stuff like that.
My daughter is average in height and does have some good basketball skills. She also has been given permission to try out for a freshman AAU basketball team and she is 8th grade.
She obviously will make the B team but her goal was to make the A team at least to be able to practice with them would be more advantageous.
My basketball question is, should she accept the B team ranking or just wait for her club team season?
