Topic: Missing High School Open Gyms For AAU BasketballQuestion from Marirutan:
What are the typical 'open gym' rules? If a player does not show up for the first two open gyms even though she played for an AAU team, does the head coach the right to say she will not play varsity in the fall? He did not allow her to start for the first two camp games.
She is a regular starter for jv. She will be a sophmore this year. Last year she did not get to play varisty because she missed conditioning. She earned the right to dress and play a few minutes. I understood this decision, but I lack to understand this most recent decision. Was the coach upset because she missed two open gyms and came down hard on her? Help me. I thought open gym was voluntary on the player's part. She has been attending camp since the beginning. This was an off season open gym. Is there a policy that approves what this coach did? Even the jv coach did not approve of his decsion. I need to know some facts because I am to meet with this coach next week. Thank you
