Thank you all so much for your thoughtful and prompt responses!  I am so
thankful to have this support system among peers!  I have all of my
students sign an expectations contract at the beginning of the season,
and I was clear about what responsibilities they had.  I spoke with the
child's guardian and we decided that it wasn't fair for the other team
members since that particular member missed most of the practices and
mentor meetings.  So, in the end the situation was resolved.  I just
want to say again how much I appreciate all of your support!  I always
want to make the best decision for my kids and it helps to have a
sounding board with experience.  I'm looking forward to seeing some of
you tomorrow!  :-)

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Quick Question

Hello everyone!  I have a last-minute conundrum that has come up.  We
have a mandatory practice today for the team and one member (who has
chosen to miss over half of our practices) has once again not come.  I
feel like it isn't fair for the team to do all the hard work and one
student gets to "ride the coat-tails".  In your personal opinion(s),
should we chalk it up to a learning experience and just let them come to
competition?  Should we (and can we) just go to competition without
them?  Any advice is appreciated!
