they need to find a new couch for the girls basketball team she has 18 girls and only plays 6 or 7 girls every game this is not right for the other kids that r on the team they deserve to play to and y with all them girls do they move a 7th grader up to play and she gets to play the whole entire game but u have all the other girls sitting on the bench while she is out there playing this pisses me off that is exactly they r losing games if u put some other girls out there u might find 5 starters that can actauly play the game and that 7 th graders is not better any of the other girls on that team if u dont have the right name or alittle money u have to sit on the bench ........

that 7th grader was moved up because she plays her heart out and is good at what she does. don't hate because she probably has more athletic ability in her pinky finger than your kid does in their entire body.

this is where we just need to have 10 to 12 on the team a A team and a B squad.....18 iis too many....the coach needs to schedule b games...and the 7th grader is talented.....

I agree with Johnny Test exactly. There are way too many girls to expect playing time. If you play 6 minute quarters that only gives you 120 minutes of playing time. 5 times 6 is 30 and 4 times 30 is 120 minutes in a game. As far as the 7th grader playing, if she is good enough she should play. It is not her fault that she has put so many hours learning to play a sport that she really loves. People complaing are people that probably never shot a game with their child in their whole life.

I guess that 7th grader you are referring to being named MVP of the national championships means she can't play ball? Nothing but jealousy here..

Just because you go out for a team does not mean you will get playing time. That is only done in the early years (k-1). Take a look at your talents and see if you are a better fit in another sport, club, or band.

Isn't the Jr. girls coach a lesbian?
