New to posting. old to soccer. Seems it has gotten so much worse lately- esp girls side - is this just me? Regarding tryouts and looking for a new team/better fit: This gets tricky when most of the competitive clubs schedule all of their tryouts on the same dates (still scratching my head over 04 girls tryouts occurring in during the high school soccer season) - some clubs asking for money for tryouts - others not - all wanting to see you kid on both tryout dates. Do the clubs intentionally do this on purpose ? IMO It is stressful on the kids from a physical standpoint/ overuse. And after tryouts parents have to make decisions quickly without knowing who the coach is and more specifics about the team makeup. Any suggestions on how to manage this would be appreciated.
