Preparing for Tryouts 

For Parents:

1) Discuss the tryout process with your player and explain that this is a learning experience. Discuss how he/she should handle being asked to join the team and also discuss how he/she would feel if not invited. Each year there are kids who do not make teams. But it’s very common to see many of these players play House (Rec League), work on their game by attending the Club’s clinics, camps and by playing futsal in the winter. They then try out the following year and make the team. So although the tryouts can be stressful there are also a number of lifelong lessons that can be learned from the experience. Parental expectations and preparation can be a critical part of a child’s learning from the experience - whether or not he/she make a competitive team.

2) The kids should prepare for the tryout by practicing; either on their own, with a parent or with the one of the Club coaches one of our Club Clinics.

3) It is a good idea to watch some soccer on TV, Fox Soccer Channel shows a condensed highlights show of one of the top leagues in the world every Sunday at 6pm each Sunday.

I didn’t make a team. Now what?

  • Consider the coach’s observations of what you need to work on.
  • Participate in the TPSC Player Development Academy or TPSC Spring Academy or TPSC Summer Camps.
  • Play on a Rec or Interleague team this year; enjoy your soccer; work hard with your coach and TPSC professional trainer to improve your skills. Most of all, have fun!
  • Attend as many TPSC clinics during the year as you can.
  • Attend soccer camps and clinics this summer; each week at soccer camp is equal to an ENTIRE SEASON of training!!!
    * The TPSC holds clinics and camps thoughout the year.
    * There are also several other summer day camp programs that operate locally in June and July.
    * There are also some great sleep-away camps throughout northern CA.
  • Get a friend, get your brother or sister, or get your parent and kick a ball around every day. Practice juggling, kicking and dribbling. Getting better at soccer is all about how many times you touch a ball!!!
  • Don’t get discouraged! Come back next year and try out again!!!
