April Education: Getting Through the Tryout Process

Earlier this month Kings Hammer Murfreesboro announced program tryout date ranges for the 2023-2024 seasons.  Naturally, announcements of this sort, whether for Kings Hammer, high school teams, or local leagues, can create a sense of anxiety or stress around performance and team formation.  This type of multi-day event can be difficult to navigate for players, parents, and coaches alike.  But the good news is that there are ways to help make this time of year a little less stressful for everyone and a little easier to navigate through.

Tryouts are a Year-long Process

Since you are reading this today, you are likely already a Kings Hammer parent or player and have been performing in one of our current programs with one of our current teams.  With that in mind one thing to remember is that every player has been in a tryout all year long.  Coaches evaluate players throughout the season.  Each practice, game, meeting, or activity provides the coach (and the parent) an opportunity to see the player perform.  Effort, attitude, commitment, communication, engagement, and of course skill and understanding of the game are all being observed throughout the season and are considered when it comes time to form teams for the next year.

Regardless of whether your child is looking at a tryout, a showcase event, or improving their ability to promote their performance during the season, here are some helpful steps you can take to frame the process better for them (and yourself).

Guides for Parents and Coaches Prior to Tryouts or Team Formation

  1. Have a conversation with your child (or players.)

Talk to them about their goals, ambitions, and desires.

    • Are they happy with their current team?
    • Do they want to keep their spot on the team?
    • Do they want to move up to a higher team even if it means possibly changing positions or getting less playing time?
    • Do they want to tryout somewhere else?
