How to Prep for Summer Tryouts

Summer tryouts are closer than you might think, and you need to be sure you are ready to impress those who are going to be making the decisions about whether you are going to be on the team or not. Therefore, you need to make sure that you are prepared for your summer tryouts.

Let’s look at a few of the most important things you will want to keep in mind.

Stay Physically Fit

Summertime is when a lot of people slack off and stop their workout routines. However, if you expect to be chosen, you can’t do this. You need to make sure that you are still working out to improve your strength, flexibility, and cardio.

Keep Practicing the Fundamentals

No matter how skilled you are, it is always important to practice the fundamentals. Professional players do this, and you should, as well. It will help you to continually improve your skills and your knowledge of the game and abilities.

Eat Right

Exercise is part of the battle, but you also need to be sure you are eating right. Sure, cake, candy, fast food, and junk food might taste good, and you might be able to burn it off with your fast metabolism. However, it still takes a toll and will slow you down. Eat right all the time, and you will be ahead of the competition.

Get Your Sleep

It’s summer, and a lot of youngsters stay up later than they should and mess up their sleep patterns. They aren’t getting enough sleep, and it starts to wear on them mentally and physically. Even though it might be summertime, try to stick to a good sleep schedule.

Bring a Good Attitude

Remember just how important it is to have a good attitude with you during your tryouts. This goes for any sort of tryouts you do now and in the future for baseball, other sports, or just about anything.

If you are coming into the tryout down and looking withdrawn, defeated, or concerned, it’s not going to make a good impression.

Always look at tryouts as opportunities and believe in yourself. Show up early, have a good attitude, and look the part. Stay focused during the tryout. Don’t goof around, don’t showboat, and don’t ridicule others. Showboating and talking badly about others doesn’t show your skill, but it does show that you aren’t a good sport. You can show your talent without being a showoff.

There are a lot of tangible and intangible factors like this that can make a bigger difference than you might think.
