Are you a student who plays a sport but chooses to play for your club team and not your school team? For whatever the reasoning may be, there are pros and cons to this. One of the pros is that you don’t have to worry about getting cut from the high school team because you would have the spot on your club team. Another one is that if you play the same position as someone else but you’re the starter on your club team, then you don’t have to worry about competing for the same spot as someone else. You also wouldn’t have to get used to a new coach because you would just have your club coach and already know what they’re like. One last pro is that you don’t have to get taught new plays, techniques, or ideas because you would just remember the ones that your club coach taught to your team, you wouldn’t have to remember many things at once for two different teams.

Even though there are pros, there can also be cons to not playing a school sport but playing a club sport. One con is that if you are stressed out in school one day, or just had a really bad day, you could look forward to going to practice or your playoff game with your friends. If you just play for a club team, you won’t have the benefit of practicing or playing right after school. Another con is that when you play a school sport you can make new friends, especially if you are a freshman in high school and want to have more friends, playing a school sport would help you create those bonds. Playing a school sport would also help your grades stay up because most school sport coaches will have grade checks and if you have a bad grade you won’t be able to play, that will make you want to boost your grade, so you can play next time. If you just play on a club team you might not have that advantage. So, playing a club sport rather than a school sport is really based on your thoughts and opinions but hopefully this helps make your decision easier.
