Is the Bench the Best Seat in the House?
One of the hardest aspects of being a Coach is trying to please everyone. From the Coachs point of view the bench is very important, we need our bench, we respect our bench, we encourage our bench, but those players on the bench dont see it that way. Its not easy being a bench player, when all you want to do is play the game! Without a doubt, the most difficult basketball position is the role of the bench player.

If you find yourself spending a lot of time on the bench, dont be discouraged. It may be hard to believe but your role as a bench player is very important to your Coach and the success of your team. You may not have chosen your role on the side lines, but as a member of the team you owe it to your team mates to do your job.
Players cannot play the full game and need a break; so substitutions are necessary. You will get your chance to play! But believe me there is nothing more frustrating, then to call a player off the bench only to find out he has no idea what is going on. I guarantee you the coach will think twice before calling on that player again. As a bench player you may not get to play a lot of minutes, but the few minutes you do play are really important ones.

Here are some improvements for bench players to consider:
Be ready! At any moment you could be in the game. You need to know what offense and defense the team is running, who you are substituting in for, who you will be guarding and what basketball position you will be playing.
When the coach calls a timeout, make sure that you get up, and run to the huddle, make eye contact with the coach, listen and get the message. Pay attention to what the coach is saying and show him you are ready.
Work hard to make your team mates better; this is one of the best contributions you can make. Not everybody can be the scorer, so do what you are good at.
Your best chance to get off the bench is to improve your game. Ask your coach what specific skills you need to work on and then do it.
Be a great team mate; if your team likes you, they will be more likely to play better with you.

The coach may recognize this and it could help get you into the game.
Bench players do have the best seat in the house! Dont be stupid! Stop thinking about when you are going to play and keep your spirits high and your mind in the game. Be prepared to make the most with your minutes. Dont think your coach wont recognize how you are helping the team. He will respect you for your efforts and consider you for more minutes over other players on the bench with bad attitudes.

If you implement these ideas you may see your time on the bench more tolerable and maybe even shorter.
