High school season is around the corner. What are club doing in the winter months?
Every coach, player, and parent has experienced a blow out. What happens when your team takes a ten point lead into half time of a tournament game?
The recruiting process has also accelerated the club team tryout timeline. A vast majority of club teams are now hosting tryouts in August and September to ensure their teams have been selected ahead of the November tournament circuit. This CDP asks what makes a good tryout?
The summer tournament circuit is over. Tryouts for next season have already begun which means the second season of the Club Directors Panel is here.
After the summer success of the 2016 NJ Riot team the organization decided to expand to include a 2017 team to compete in the 2014 summer season. Tryouts were held late in the summer of 2013 with 100+ players in attendance. After the second call back a group of 24 players were selected and the summer began.
Just because you want to play for a certain club this summer doesn’t mean they want you to play for them. What are some things our Club Directors are looking for when selecting their teams?
How do you manage a player, and perhaps his family as well, who comes off of a disappointing summer circuit?
Week Three of the Club Directors Panel finds us discussing how many tournaments a club should participate in, and how these clubs select those events. Should you play in three tournaments or five? If you play in too few events are you risking not being seen by coaches? If you play in too many events, are you risking injury or being over exposed?
