Tryouts for HS Sports at PS?

Recommended Posts

My dd wants to play soccer at the local high school (smaller town) and I was told that there would be tryouts at the beginning of the year. She's never done tryouts. She's played several seasons of soccer through the parks and rec program, but that was several years ago. What can see expect with these and what are they looking for?

As a high school soccer coach, I can tell you that there is no need to fear. We take nervousness into consideration*!

I run my tryouts very similar to practices, with a few exceptions. I will look at speed (sprint/endurance), ball handling, overall strength, knowledge/understanding of the game, willingness to accept direction/correction, and attitude.

These can all be pretty well evaluated in your typical practice-like drills.

Best of luck to her!
