    lose your place

    In the sentence 'If you don't come, you might lose your place in the team', does place mean the opportunity to enter the team?

    Thanks!

    No. You can't lose your place in the team unless you are already in the team.
    It means "If you don't turn up, we might kick you off the team".

    "If you don't come, you might lose your chance for a place in the team" means what you said.
