Tryout tips and how to be prepared:

  • Stay hydrated! Staying hydrated is an important part of not only keeping your body healthy but ready for tryout. In order to stay energized and be at your best, be sure to be drinking enough water throughout the days leading up to your tryout.
  • Sleep, Sleep, SLEEP! Getting a full eight hours of sleep is the best way to keep your body rested and awake for your tryouts. Especially since most tryouts will be after school, it’s important that you will have enough energy to complete the school day and enough to able to perform your best later that afternoon.

 

  • Be prepared. Being prepared and ready to go is one way to help your mind prepare and stay mentally focused on your tryout. Make sure all of the gear and clothes you need are packed and brought to school because there’s nothing worse than showing up for basketball tryouts without your shoes or to swim without your swimsuit. Double check you have all your gear because forgetting something at home will only add to your nerves.
  • Eat right. Along with drinking water and sleep, making sure you are eating the correct foods and the right amount of nutrients is another key way to staying energized. Rather than Taco Bell the night before, try having pasta or healthy carbs.
  • Be confident! Keeping yourself confident calms down your nerves and lets you play how you know how to play. Staying confident keeps you ready and positive about your tryout rather than hesitant or nervous. Perform how you know how to and don’t be scared, relax, breathe and do your best!
