: : I have a question. During your travel team game, a kid on the opposing team gets mad that he is being closely guarded and loses it and slaps the player in the face that is guarding him. A technical foul is called and the opposing coach takes his player out of the game.

: : (The kid was NOT ejected) A few minutes later the coach puts his player back in the game. Would YOU have put the kid back in the game after he intentionally slapped a player in the face? Is winning at all costs now the norm? What do you think? (middle school division)

: The player paid the penalty, tech for his team. Coach pulled him out to cool him down/talk with him. Do need to consider, how deep, how important is this game, history of the player in other heated games/practices, typical mentality of the player and you never know what was said to this player by the defender or fans etc to set player off. But w/o knowing more, no harm done by subbing player back in.

Good points - all. I think you do need to take into account all of it . Including the overall behavior/history of the player. That said, IF a player deliberately strikes another player, id probably bench him for the remainder of the game.
