That seems like a huge waste of minutes for most kids.
But I think this shows the problem with SH minutes, while all other improvement is predictable, grades have a level of randomness.
it's not a waste of minutes at all. I'm usually giving almost everyone 0 minutes by the start of their second season, and everyone with any kind of decent work ethic is still getting maxed out in their skills well before they finish their career.
If it were possible to have identical players, and I'm giving them 10 SH and you're giving them 7, is that 1 extra minute of practice in 3 separate skills really making that big of a difference in their on-court ability? Especially over the long haul if you're having to give them SH down the road and I'm not?
