Navigating Youth Soccer Tryouts


And so I think it’s important that you shouldn’t just, for lack of word, willy nilly just sort of pick out based on things you hear about the next place you want to go.

Jay is the Executive Director at the Richmond Strikers, has been in the youth game for over 20 years and is the former Executive Director of the ECNL. 

I always appreciate Jay’s perspective and sound advice and this interview was full of great insight. 

One of the listeners mentioned how “reasonable” Jay was with his comments throughout the entire webinar, and I think that’s a perfect way to describe Jay.

With so much stress surrounding tryouts and the youth soccer landscape in general, we need more reasonableness from our leaders.
