Participation in training is not something to which your son is entitled. However, he would be entitled to try out for the team. He would have to train on his own.

On the ski team there is a typical travel team and a couple of back ups in case of injury.
There are only 4.5 scholarships for men. If my son wants to join the team although not a starter why not? If he pays all his expenses and is not a financial burden why could he not participate on a school team for which he is paying for through his college tuition?
In order to be on the team you have to try out for the team and be selected. You do not have the right to be on the team other than in that process. Your son is not entitled to be on the team. He tries for the team and is selected. If he is not selected he is not on the team. There is no other way to get on a school team.
Thank you for accepting the answer.
