I feel the same way as Brandy, but I also think that Phil's idea to let this possible new member come to the meetings and the event in a lesser role, with the understanding that he can be a full team member next season. Events start in less than a month, after all, and you said that most of the work has been done.

Good luck!

How will the new kid fit into the team? - the last consideration you should try to imagine is if not attending this season's competition would discourage them from attending next season.   The parents must know OCTOBER is late in the season, and they missed the cut off that the other members came in on.

If you were lacking in any area- research/ drama people or engineers- then you might have a reason to let in new and fresh talent, but having a balanced team seems like a  great way to go into your first competition.

Our is composed of eight children and have been meeting since the end of July and we just had a parent that has asked if their child can join the team. How should I answer this question? Is it too late in the game? Have the other children done most of the work (and they have), is there a rule as to when we should cutoff membership, should I put it up for a vote with the team? I do not want to take this opportunity away from this child by telling him no, he can't join as I feel that would discourage him from joining next year but I also want to be fair to the rest of the team. Please provide me with the wisdom that comes from being a veteran as I am rookie coach.
