Who Should be on the Team?

basketball tryouts listIt’s that time of year when basketball tryouts are being held all over the country and coaches are trying to decide who should make the team and who should be left off the list.

Here are some very useful suggestions for players and coaches alike:

  • Players that care more about statistics and personal awards than they do about the team shouldn’t be on the team.
  • Players that complain about playing time but refuse to put in extra work to earn more minutes shouldn’t be on the team.
  • Players that care about individual rankings more than they care about improvement shouldn’t be on the team.
  • Players that don’t cheer for their teammates and don’t celebrate their teammates successes shouldn’t be on the team.
  • Players that care more about the box score than they care about the final score shouldn’t be on the team.
  • Players that stare at the clock during practice anxiously waiting for it to end shouldn’t be on the team.

(The above list came from several tweets on the Pure Sweat twitter feed)
