Juniors in game development
My kid got into a rep team and is a first timer, bottom age.
So far trainings are really good, develop the kids equally. He is really enjoying them, gets on with the boys, no issues at all.
Game time is different. Our team is undersized and he is one of the taller boys. His responsibility is to wait in corner on offense while the guards bring the ball up. He's not allowed to bring the ball up during inbound passes or following (own or other's) defensive rebound.
He's been trained as a guard with his dribbling and shooting previously, has pretty good dribble and fluid shot technique, is not as fast as some shorter boys. Rebounding is certainly not something he's any good at yet.
In game development seems to be heavily focused on guards who bring the ball up and don't share it as much. Forwards/centres seem to only ever get the ball if they rebound following other's misses.
It just doesn't seem like kids develop at the same, or at least similar, rate this way. Is this a standard across different teams, or it depends on the coach? Is there anything I could constructively do, certainly don't want to disrupt the team, to change things for everyone's benefit?
