Being a U8 (and U6) coach, I'm seeing the travel-tryout process for the first time (we start at U9). I'm a little surprised to learn that all they do is 5v5 scrimmages. Is this typical? I'm a little concerned about players I've seen who are smaller and have terrific skills but may fare better in organized travel games than they do in magnet-ball scrimmages. I wonder if they might show better in different scenarios.
