A good tip from my friend who got spotted at a try-out

Post by frizzyan » 26 Oct 2005, 03:37

First of all, he dyed his hair into some weird color so he got noticed easily. But then if you looked unique but played like sh*t, it didn't help.

Secondly, he practiced really hard leading the weeks before his tryout. And during the tryout, he used his array of tricks and was also a team player by making some beautiful passes he had been practicising for the past couple of weeks.

Thirdly, he had a great mentality in that he always believed in himself. this way he made it really far.

and last but definitely not least..he encouraged his teammates and coachs really liked that aspect.

he got spotted so easily because he looked different from others, but on top of that, he was a special player and therefore he got picked over many other "special" players but did not use some of his tryout tips.

i think all those things are great ideas except for the dying of the hair. the game speaks for itself, if your good your gonna stand out to your coaches no need to go to the extreme but he was creative and gotta spot and in the end thats all that really mattters
If your 5 minutes early to practice your
on time, if your on time your late.

hah true..

but u hafto realize there are over 500 players at the tryout..and there has to be at least 20 decent players. so when coaches reflect on the day..they will definitely remember The Guy with the dark blue hair that played amazingly, instead of the blonde 5 foot 6 guy...

I also think the hair was a good idea, it makes him standout.

or how about this: 1) run to all water breaks, sounds funny, but coaches love guys who love to run
2) when you lose the ball, give 110% and rush to get it back right away
3)shoot low and hard, dont be afraid to take shots, and DONT MISS THE NET
4)dont make mistakes, dont make mistakes, dont make mistakes
5)be ready to give up your body

if you can do all these well, you will make any team.

yeah thats a really good trick my friend was telling me about that it actually works, especially if your black and playing with white kids, you just get spotted easier, and im not racist but its true. i
