: : I just had a player walk into my office with a list of 5 games that he says "he will not be able to make" The kids have had the schedule months in advance and not this. To me 5 out of 28 games is unacceptable and while I have already stripped the player of his Captaincy, I'm debating whether or not to go to the AD and Admin and discuss dismissing him from the program....any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated

: The expectation is players attend all practices and games. He would have to have a pretty important reason to miss any game.
: I might understand missing a 5 game holiday tournament because his family was leaving town to visit relatives. I would not excuse missing because he had a club baseball game

Is he missing any league games? Will he be available for all playoff games if your team qualifies? I can see stripping him of his captain status maybe but kicking him off the team is very harsh in my opinion. Letís be honest, itís only high school basketball. If the kid has 5 legit things already scheduled so that he misses some games then at least heís telling you now so you and the team can plan accordingly. I probably wouldnít start the kid because of the missed games but Iíd definitely keep him on the team.
