What Coaches are Looking For

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 Ability
Technical skills: passing, dribbling, shooting, first touch, defending, etc.

Athletic Ability
Speed, quickness, agility, strength, body control, etc.

Awareness
Tactical skills: positioning, communication, decisions on and off the ball, etc.

Attitude/Work Ethic
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.
