hi people i just had my tryouts monday tuesday and wednsday man i was on a recovery from a bad leg and on try outs i pushed my self to the limits i have never done before. good thing is i was playing right midfield and the marking back shot the ball to me i flicked it over my head and pushed the other guy to my left passed the ball to the forward ran to the side got the ball back crossed and magnificently the forward headed the ball in the coach yelled what a brilliant goal lol i was happy then :D but after all that when i saw my name i was put on a jv starter list i asked the coach why i did not make the varcity team he told me he cant risk the team by putting an injured player so guys what do you think i should do im recovering faster than expected becouse i practice and play every day i am 15 and im in the 10th grade now is jv starter accseptable?? :(

ofcourse its acceptable. michael jordan his sophmore didnt even make the basketball team. just think..would u rather play every jv game and get more playing time..or get limited playing time on varsity? its not the end of the world. if u work hard and stay motivated, maybe u can get moved up. theres tons of possibilities..you just have to make them happen. just play football and show them what you got. use this as motivation to become better.

The best of luck. hope i helped :D

not neccesarely, if they have an open spot they will move you up. Not to mention, your skills will progress a lot faster if your team plays at a high skill level, so making Varsity with limited playing time is better than making jv and playing all the time.

Not necessarily true, redrover. You get more experience in JV, so you can gain confidence and be able to keep your composure and stay calm with the ball in games alot better.
And if you're good enough, they WILL move you up.

I actually agree with redrover365 on this one. In my opinion it is better to be on varsity with limited playing time because you will be playing with better players and therefore improving faster. You won't get the glory of playing in games as much but you will gain valuable experience at practices and in seeing what it is like to be on the varsity squad. A year of limited playing time on a high level varsity will prepare you for next year much better than a year of beating up on underclassman in JV games.

However, don't get the wrong impression. You are not in a bad situation. You still have two years to rock the house on varsity after this year, so if you work hard good things will happen. You still have plenty of opportunity ahead of you.

I gotta agree with BG, the best situation for you I think would be to swing or practice varsity, but playing for 10 minutes a game against better players still won't do you as good as geting 90 minutes on jv with lots of time on the ball

but the practice will make the most difference and show better results. Trust me, i have practiced with Varsity (currently on Jv), and its is a lot better and you get a lot better. Personally i couldnt have made varsity anyways (my height 5 0")

at my school the JV and varsity team often practice together, so JV players get to practice with older faster and more skilled players. i would rather play JV and start and get alot of playing time.
my freshman year i got to play on varsity in the district and regional tournaments, it really is a different game.
if you are good, they will move you up. regardless of if there is an open spot or not
if a quiz is quizzical, then what's a test?

ofcourse it is. i told you this. jsut go out and play football man. dont worry about not being on varsity so much. just practice and play how you play and maybe they will move you up.just use this as motivation. keep at it man. hopefully everything wil fall into place.

btw on the whole playing time and difficulty thing..you would learn more from the expirience standpoint from playing time. do u know anyone that has gotten even better just from sitting on the bench? the more u play the more of a feel for the ball you have and more vision you can develop. it gives u more opportunities to work on aspects of the game.

Being on varsity and sitting the bench still means you are practicing with much better players than are on JV at least 3 days a week. Due to the huge gulf in quality between varsity and JV I believe it would be more beneficial in the long run to be on the varsity squad even with limited playing time.

It also gains you the respect and trust of your fellow players at the Varsity level...

Its always better to play on the higher level, even if you don't get enough playing time you'll be in practice with those better varsity players nearly everyday, it will make you a better player.
