I need to have a fair system with all girls attending every game and changing position each quarter...Some suggestions please
Holly this question was raised recently, so for an instant view to a number of responses go and have a quick look (it has been brought up on a number of occasions so go back through the archives and see what you find).
but i currently have 10 U11s in my team and they all turn up for a game each week. if you have a very young and non competive team then just rotate through the girls realising that 2 will ALWAYS have half a game off more than the others each game. but you can just change who has half a game off each week.
if you want to be competive then you cant always have fair. as pointed out by others having one player off each week is an option, as well as splitting the team up into areas (defence (3) centre court (4) shooting (3),) and only rotating through those positions. that way you get more consistant playing and gelling withing the team.
there is no easy solution to this, but you need to make a decision as to whether you want to be fair and probably sacrafice competiteness, or less fair and be more competitive, or have a player off the entire match and only play with 9. you could give 2 players a game off and play with 8. thats the other option. me i dont have enough depth in my team to do anything other than break up the team into areas and teach the girls only to play 1-3 positions only.
Here's the recent answer Lee-Anne was referring to:
