AAU and Select Team Tryouts, Part 3 (Episode #9)

Podcast Logo

Coach Guy Perry and Coach Tom Newell talk about the negative impacts of holding AAU and Select Team tryouts immediately only days after the end of the season. Huge expectations can color an otherwise successful season, teams that make the state playoffs are penalized with immediate tryouts, and the lack of break can lead to kids leaving the sport. This episode follows up on podcasts #4 and #5, which look at the costs and benefit of these programs and provides some criteria for choosing a AAU or Select Team program.
