Does the club have a playing time policy?
Players who attend practice and put effort into training sessions will play the equivalent at least one half of all PCJSL league games and at least 15 minutes in all other games. (If a team has two games, it is feasible for a player to play a quarter of one game and three quarters of another game to meet the requirement).
The coach makes the decision on tournament play above the 15 minute minimum, and other factors such as poor grades, off the field issues and conduct at practice may also play a role in reduced playing time, but this is something the coach should indicate to the player/parent in the event of such an occurrence.
Coaches may make an oversight in error once or twice, but if a pattern emerges that sees your son or daughter consistently receive less than described above, please contact Steve Wallace - email@example.com to discuss.
At CDO we take pride in developing soccer players, and that does not happen by spending all of the game sitting on the bench.
