Playing Time Statement Players and parents must remember that, unlike Little League, teams at the High School level are not required to play all players. This is not a training league. In a competitive environment the object is to win the game. Competition is not antithetical to Christianity. Thus, the coaches will try to win games using the players that they think will be able to do that considering the various circumstances of each game and strengths and weaknesses of each team. However, coaches are encouraged to, and will try to, give all players as much playing time as possible.
