Difficult To please all players

How domi deal with a player who does not attend training but yet wants to participate in league games. She is a good player but I feel she is missing out on training and how the whole team functions together and led eloping herself further.Also I have a player who thinks she is the best player in the team . She enjoys playing centre position which she is very good at. After half time I get her to sit out because I need to give ankther players who is totally as good as her to play centre as its fresh legs on the court, plus she gets a little tired playing centre.She feels she is capable of playing a full game and why does she have to sit out at half time. All the players are excellent players in the team therefore it's difficult to decide who to sit out and who to keep on??Please advise

Can i ask what ages they are? 

 

I have too many players for a team of primary aged children and have some of the issues as above.  The way around it that I came up with is to have a set rotation - the players all have a turn on and off the court and this means that no single player is off.  This rotation then allows for some players to play a full match at times.  If a player does not turn up to training - they automatically forfeit a half match - ie they only get to play half a game - if it their time for a half match game anyway - they are off completely.  No need to apologise.  Team games require team efforts on and off the competition court. That means that all players must turn up to training.
