2 Question Parents Always Ask Me Before Youth Soccer Tryouts

Published on April 23, 2018

Youth soccer tryouts in Sacramento are coming up here in just a couple of weeks from now…

This is when parents always reach out to me with “2 questions” before tryouts:
“What is the best club to recommend to our daughter?”
My Answer: Picking the best club has little to do with the club, it has everything to do with the actual coach of the team your daughter is on. If you are considering switching soccer clubs, do your research and find the club that is BEST for your daughter. It’s very common to switch clubs these days. Do what’s best for your daughter, and your family…period.
…and here’s question #2
“Can you work with our daughter for the next few weeks before tryouts?”

Getting ready for tryouts is not a magic pill – you don’t just get to train a couple weeks before to sharpen your soccer skills (and then make the team)….Although other coaches will tell you that your daughter needs extra touches a couple weeks before tryouts – that’s not the thing that’s going to propel them to make the team.

I take a look at the list of players in our soccer training program who have been training for the last 6 months getting ready for tryouts…they have been ready for tryouts since January 1st.

I would love to help your daughter get ready for tryouts, but our private soccer training will go beyond that- it’s about preparing over the summer to dominate the next season!

Consistency is the key – not training a couple days before tryouts.

Hope this helps, feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
