What is the best way to mentally prepare your child for a sports team tryout?
Well i dont have kids since I'm in high school but as a former athlete all you can do is support them. Make sure they know its okay if they don't make the team and they can always try again. Its just a learning process in which rejection is a part of life. So really nothing you can do besides support them regardless of the outcome.
I've coached youth sports for 18 years and I can tell you there is no substitute for practice. With that being said, if its a competitive tryout where there is a chance they wouldn't make the team, you need to stress the importance of trying your best and that sometimes in life things don't go as we want them to. Stress that tried and true motto..."if at first you don't succeed, try, try again".
