RE: [IP] re:b-ball discrimination

 I agree with Kay's post about first talking to the JV coach--try to find out
your son's "real" b-ball abilities (although he sounds pretty good to me:-) and
also let him know what's going on and try to get him "on your side" if we have
to put it in those terms. Then have a chat with the coach after watching a few
practices or games.
 If this guy is as jerky as he seems right now I really doubt he's going to be
interested in being TRAINED ON GLUCOGON or any other low treatment. That doesn't
sound like a good approach. But you should let him know the reality of your
son's D. and that he/you all have plans for anything that may happen.
 I also like that Chris said in that "you may want to education him about the
opportunities act as it applies to schools and athletics," if all else fails.
 A talk with the Athletic Director and/or principal might not hurt if all else
 Your son should not be cut if he has a good shot only b/c some idiot high
school coach doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground!
 Sorry, I got a bit frustrated there! I can only imagine how you as the Mama
Good luck, don't give up and keep us posted!

Could you express your concerns to the JV coach? He may be able to put 
in a good word for your son with the Varsity coach. You might also find 
out the real reason. If it is discrimination, you could talk to the 
athletic director or principal.
