How to Prepare for Tryouts

With the new school year underway, team tryouts are just around the corner. How can you help your student prepare? Here are a few top tips from our team at Play It Again Sports ~ Brentwood and Play It Again Sports ~ Hendersonville:

  • Start getting in shape now before tryouts begin. You’ll feel better, perform better, and have greater confidence.
  • Eat a healthy, energizing breakfast on tryout day.
  • Show up early to show your respect and commitment to the coach and the team.
  • Be ready to learn. Coaches are looking for players who are malleable and eager to learn!
  • Stop seeking perfection. Instead, focus on doing your best in each individual drill or activity.
  • Communicate with your teammates – a sign of maturity and a quality team player.
  • Whether winning or losing, always practice good sportsmanship.
  • Most importantly, have fun!
