Imagine trying out for a certain sport, being very skilled at it, but unfortunately, have a team of academic junkies and not so many athletes. It wouldn’t be fair. That’s where tryouts come in. Not only do tryouts help you impress coaches with your skill but it also helps prevent the wrong types of people making the team. Everyone has their own thing. You wouldn’t want a really talented football player on your soccer team. Tryouts put out a sense of satisfaction if you think about it. You wouldn’t want to be selected to be on a competitive team just because you wanted to and showed up. Going through the tryout process provides a sense of contentment, especially if you end up making the team.

 

Moving along, there is another beneficial aspect to tryouts. Benchwarmers. Why would you join a team to just end up sitting on the sidelines at every competition? It would be a waste of time. To coaches, having that process of picking out the very best makes it difficult for them to ever have someone sitting out. It helps build a strong team. So, next time you try out for a sport, remember why you are and the background behind the importance of the tryout process.
