Coaches bench players for a variety of reasons...sometimes they can't play due to grades.

Do you mean why isn't he playing any more than he is? or anymore at at all?

Because little Johnny isn't getting the job done, doesn't weigh enough, weighs too much, is causing drama on the sidelines, is getting trouble in class, couldn't run out of sight in a day, can't control his speed, can't remember the plays, wets his pants when he gets hit, gets too many penalties for hitting too hard, is dating my daughter, isn't the son of a school board member, isn't the right color, because I'm a racist, and overall, I just don't like him.

The case is this: My son was playing early in the season but is not playing now that District has started....This is something that can be said to many coaches...not necessarily said just/or to me...

Either the son isn't good enough to play or he's injured.

If any kid is good enough to play, the coach will find somewhere to play him sometime during the game.
But if the kid isn't touching the field and he's not injured, that means HE AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY.

All parents need to realize, All kids have different talent levels

Why don't you just ask the coach?

That would imply to me that the son knows why he isn't playing,
If it's the grandpa asking (which, I believe, is the case you are referring to) sounds like the coach and the father have already discussed it.
And grandpa should ask his son (the non-player's father).

It may be as simple as a kid unable or unwilling to hit correctly. If a kid insists on hitting with his head down, he doesn't take the field again until he can show me he can look the hit in.

Pretty simple. Offer them the chance to watch every practice, from two-d-days until game time and see who the best six are. If there son isn't one of them, no explanation needed. Some parents forget pee wee football was the last guaranteed playing time their sons get. If they want us to play everyone; stop judgin every decision we make and judging us on our win-loss record. You can't have it both ways!
