It is as if some kids are scared that their skill won’t matter.For example in the article Minds made up before tryouts it says “Regardless of when tryouts are, it seems like coaches already have their minds made up by the summer, if they have summer camps or if they coach a travel team” (smith para 2). As you may know sports teams may have a summer program that kids can get involved, in which the coaches may pick kids to make the team not by their skill but by their personality. Also in Sports tryouts should be fair for all students it says “There were plenty of boys trying out for the team and several that were cut so these ineligible and injured boys could have their spots. How is any of this fair? This is why kids get discouraged and stop playing or trying to play sports” (John's para 4).

Randivé realizes that the teams’ greatest weakness was that they had no experience. When this was realized, Randivé decided to introduce a full court press during all their games because they do not need to be as good as all the other teams in order to play hard defense during a full court press.

Now, physicians urge for “6 months on, 6 months off” types of strategies that ensures ample rest for the athlete during the offseason. This may prevent them from attending every summer camp and tryout, but it is highly likely that this will preserve their arm. It is a risk that the player and their family must decide. When a potentially lucrative contract could be in grasp, how do you turn that down? How can you tell a budding prospect to tone down the force behind their pitches?
