What To Do If You Get Benched In Your Sport Every Week

Podcast Show - Listen Below

You show up to practice, you give it your all!

You work hard with your team and in practice you absolutely crush it!

Yet you still don't get picked to play on game day. You sit on the bench and watch your team mates compete.

What thoughts run through your mind when this happens?

  • you create doubts in your mind whether you are good enough.
  • there are the usual politics that go on in the team - of course you don't get picked.
  • you don't get picked because you aren't one of the coach's favourites.
  • you start to compare yourself to the rest of the team.
  • your performance level drops and stop playing at a high level that you know you are capable to compete at that level.
  • you feel like it's a constant struggle.

What do you do?

The worst possible thing that you can do for yourself is to stay in this mindset as it will be destructive.

Here is a 2 step plan for you below;

Step 1 - Meet with your coach and ask questions.

  1. Why aren't I getting picked to play with the team in competitions? (just listen and take notes).
  2. What do I need to do to get picked into the team to compete? (suggestion of drills to do etc).

Step 2 - Devise A Plan.

  • Everything that you have learned from your coach, now you put the plan in place.
  • What are you going to do?
  • How you are going to do it?
  • When are you going to do it?

Now get to work!

Make sure you listen the this episode as explained in great detail of understanding for you. Get your note book ready and take notes.


  • If you are struggling in your sport.
  • If you are not getting picked in the team to play on game day.
  • If you are constantly benched throughout the season.
  • When you finally get picked you don't play well, you miss shots you shouldn't miss.
  • You don't show the high level of play you know you are capable.
  • You struggle with staying motivated because the hard work is not paying off yet.
