My DD just started her freshman year on a D1 soccer program and, not surprisingly, isn't getting a lot of playing time. Her particular team has a lot of talent, most with YNT experience which my daughter doesn't have. As many can relate, she was a "star" on her club team and PDP/ODP team, but is having to adjust to being a bench player. (She's adjusting much better than her parents, lol.) She is doing great in practices and so was rewarded with playing time in a conference game. She did awful. Not due to talent but mental nervousness. For whatever reason this coach doesn't give his freshman a lot of playing time in preseason, preferring to give 80% or more of his time to starters to get them ready for conference. So the conference game she went in was essentially her first game other than one 10 minute and one 15 minute appearance in a pre-season game (which she did very well in). Anyone have some encouraging stories to help me adjust? Players who might have struggled their freshman year but ended up doing great? I'm worried that this one bad game will prevent the coaches from giving her another shot.
