Tryouts Soccer:A Guide To Selecting Players
by: Andre Botelho

I should say to you that the very important step in the tryouts soccer is the selection process. In order to be selected to play for a team, the player must meet the eligibility criteria based on the requirements of the soccer team.

No matter whether the players are newly selected or the retained, coaches expect the best from them. Much importance is given to the review, test, and selection of kids in the tryouts and coaches play a very important role in the development and the leadership of youth soccer program.

The below guidelines are the core of the principles which guide the selection process and help with the direction to form teams.

It is the responsibility of the Port coach to ensure that players, for all ages and competitive levels, are selected in a fair and unbiased fashion based upon their qualifications, skill, approach, commitment, participation, and philosophy.

The players should be made aware of each long term and short term objective of the team and the league explaining the level where they want to place the team and its justification.

The coach, after reviewing the application, may choose to interview the candidate if there are questions, issues or suggestions. The coach will make sure that he observes the candidate during the practice session.

Coaches may interview all the new players through soccer association to evaluate player’s qualifications, and make the player’s understand the policies, guidelines, and expectations of the club.

While not all inclusive, there are some basic expectations from all coaches irrespective of the age group of players that they train.

A coach must encourage players at all times and should make sure that the self-esteem of any player or parent is not damaged at any time. During tryouts soccer, try to build an open, productive and a strong relationship with the league, parents, players, and the referees.

By making sure that he is cooperating well with others, a coach can ensure that the program is efficient to all the kids involved in the session.

Since the coaches follow the Board’s guide, philosophy, and the agenda for the league, they are essentially the agents of the Board.

Show the way by being an example in determining acceptable behavior patterns whether in the end, your team wins or loses.

A coach must understand and appreciate the age group that he is managing. One should respect the decisions of the referee in the soccer tournament. One should make sure that he or she attends all compulsory coaching and safety workshops on soccer coaching without fail.

The coach can be the leader but the players decide the result of the game.

Tryouts soccer coaches are expected to have some significant experience coaching the youth. The perfect experience for tryouts soccer coach is minimum three to five years.
