I am a passionate netball fan. I enjoy playing with my sixth form team and I can't help but love a bit of healthy competition!! But only just recently my coaches have started to become reluctant to put me on the team because of my asthma. As soon as I start playing sport, I breathe very deeply and wheeze/pant a lot and often require a few puffs of my Ventolin.
Returning to sixth form after Christmas, I turned up to training and played but I was never put on the team. I spoke to my coach and she replied saying that they didn't want to take me to away matches because I didn't have a sub - therefore I can no longer play in any away games. In response, I replied that I do not need a sub (despite recent asthma attacks) and I am taking medication to help my symptoms. She has yet to put me on a match but doesn't mind me playing a 40 minute game on a Sunday when the team is short of numbers.
I am sick and tired of it. I just want to be treated like a normal person and not be discriminated for something I can't help. Does anyone have any advice for me on this situation, as i'm just fed up
