Often times, players and parents want to know what a coach is looking for in a player. It is difficult to truly see all that a player has to offer in just two or three sessions. However, the tryouts will be structured in a way to allow all participants a chance to showcase their talents. Here is a quick explanation of each criterion:
Technical skills: passing, dribbling, shooting, first touch, defending, etc.
Speed, quickness, agility, strength, body control, etc.
Tactical skills: positioning, communication, decisions on and off the ball, etc.
We are looking for players who exhibit a positive attitude, take coaching points well, show good sportsmanship, and have an overall desire to improve as players.
Coaches and evaluators will use the Tryout Evaluation Form found HERE to help with their evaluations.
