Our jobs as parents are to support and to listen to our children after an intense evaluation by coaches.
On the East Coast, May and June are typical tryout months for many towns and clubs. Spring season is underway and our soccer players are getting familiar with the training schedule and their teammates. Tryouts can be a stressful time in a young athlete’s soccer career. Parents play a central role in creating a positive, nurturing, and healthy environment for their children when they are faced with being tested or evaluated for a sport team.
Spring Soccer has arrived and plannng is required!
For athletes encountering tryouts for the first time, we must recognize that this a new experience and the athlete has no prior information to compare it to. As parents it is important to find out as much as possible about the structure of the tryout.
