Everyone on the team deserves shot to play

As a parent I have been involved in Williamsport middle school and high school sports the past five years.To this day I still cannot understand why the coaches dont play all the players. When our teams have a comfortable lead they keep the starters in and rotate the same subs and let the other players set.

Why pick so many when they use only a few off the bench? I know it happens in basketball and soccer from the middle school thru high school. The way I see it and alot of other parents see it you wont have strong teams year after year if the bench warmers dont get the playing experience. They are just as good a player. Let them have fun. It’s just a game.
