    Ideally his dad would take him on those weekends and your son would enjoy the sport to it's full potential. But if you can't agree there is no harm in a small compromise so that perhaps your son only attends every other week when he is with you.

    At least he is getting to play in some capacity. It's not great - especially being a team sport. But it's def better than missing out all together.

    You can lead a horse to water.. But you can't force it to drink!!. You can only do so much when ultimately his dad gets to decide what happens on his weekends. Eventually your son will see that his dad isn't a team player and is letting his son down by being stubborn.

    If it's auskick, it's not usually an actual game, but drills to help with his skills. I don't think missing every 2nd weekend would really bother them.

    I had this exact situation and in the end DS just went every second weekend. I explained to the coach the situation and they were fine with it.

    Does he get him from Friday night to Sunday night? Would he change around so you did the sport first thing sat and he picks him up from there and has an extra night on the other side?

    My dad wouldn't do sport with us or take us when we were enrolled so mum would pick us up from his house and take us and then drop us back off. Thankfully he didn't care as he was usually nursing a hangover so we got to do activities. We just assumed mum wanted to watch us which is why it went that way. Wasn't until years later that mum started being honest with us when we asked.
    I'd say every second weekend is better than not at all and try to offer to take both of them or get his parents to start if you can talk them into it.
    Such a hard situation and looks like burden will fall on you ultimately as he's so unwilling to take time out to take him. Hugs x
