It's Not About Winning
- Remember, it's not about winning. If you're so focused on getting the best players in the game, you could be ruining the fun of sports for the kids you keep on the bench. This is especially true for younger children who may be playing a sport for the very first time. Rotate players out evenly so everyone gets their fair share of play time. And, no matter what, encourage them with "Great job!" and "Good try!" You can be a wonderful influence on these children who they remember for a lifetime!
