Playing time is determined by each coach. Team Tampa Basketball encourages that each player receive roughly equal playing time during the regular season of league games. This may vary due to a number of factors including attendance at practices, positional needs, competition, fouls, injuries and other factors. Players may play more in some games and less in others. During the playoffs of league games and the tournament season, coaches may "play to win," but all players are expected to meaningfully participate.
