    Kid doesn't make the varsity soccer team and coach won't bring him down to JV so mother sues.

    Kind of a jacked up situation by the school if it won't allow juniors to stay down on JV but the mom is using some of the same arguments we've all heard.

    He should sue to play on the women’s team.

    Obviously, he didn't get his name in the paper enough.

    She sues just as hard as the varsity moms. No orange slices, though.

    Obviously, she blames soccer.

    I've never seen where a school won't let juniors play on JV. That's seems kind of shortsighted that a kid could be a varsity contributor the next year.

    So they just promote worse sophomores and juniors than a rising senior to fill open spots?

    The kid might just suck so bad that he is worse than the sophomores or freshmen.

    I’ve known schools and entire conferences/states that don’t let juniors play JV.

    It’s common in Florida, for example, for team sports. The high school at which I taught had freshmen teams, JV teams (sophomores only, though good freshmen could play as the JV season is longer). A junior and not varsity caliber? No team for you.

    He should just play another sport, because all athletes can play all sports.
