I (we) am completely lost as what to do. My son was recently kicked off from track team for being late to practice almost everyday after school. Sounds bad, I know. While talking to his coach to try getting him back on the team, I found that he was always late because he was going to his NHS, Key Club and other club meetings after school and then to his required track practice. I'm guessing he was late about 30 minutes a day. Basically, it's either sports (any) or clubs and is a policy that all coaches at this school agreed on. Obviously we are disappointed, but my son has a choice to make for his upcoming senior year. What I'm wondering is, what is more important to the academies? Is it sports or various clubs? Would not having one disqualify him from seriously being considered? I would appreciate any input.
