    school and was very confident my style of play would earn me a spot on the team. During JV tryouts, we did basic drills to start things off. 3 on 3, running suicides, jump rope, shooting drills, passing drills, etc. I’m not going to sit here and say I was flawless, but I thought I did very well and so did all of my friends and teammates. These tryouts went on for about 3 more days, and at the end of the final tryout, the coach posted the list of who made the team. As we all went over to check…

    and middle school teams. I knew that I wasn't the best player on the court, but I scored a few points a game, and I played decent defence. For the duration of the tryout practices, I thought that I was doing well, but apparently the coach did not consider me a good fit for the team. After a meeting with the coach on the last day of tryouts, I was forced to go home with a heavy heart and a tight stomach. Not only would I not have the opportunity to play basketball with a few of my friends, I…

    We sang many songs that year, even one in an African language, but only one song had any solo tryouts. Mrs. Smith picked “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry for us to sing, so we could have at least one modern song. There were three solos in it, I tried out for the first one. The tryouts weren’t in front of the class, but I still had to try and keep my hands and knees from shaking. It was my very first tryout I had ever done. “Yeah I was in the dark / I was falling hard / With an open heart / How did…

    season was encroaching my nerves were increasing every day. This year was different from my freshman year for one sole reason, tryouts. I knew I was a good baseball player but my coaches did not.

After two of longest hours of my entire life, tryouts were officially over. I went home that night and laid awake for hours hating myself for every mistake I made. The next…

    learn how to swim was 11 years ago on a beautiful morning in June. The Hinsdale town pool was holding tryouts to invite young swimmers to join the pool’s swim club. I had always seen my older brother and sister swim and realized how cool it would be to be able to swim, so my sights were set on earning my place on the club. Confidently, I strolled into the check-in area and confirmed my spot in the tryouts. “This’ll be a piece of cake!” I thought to myself. I would soon learn how wrong I was.…

    and my team was undefeated. After that exhilarating week of playing volleyball, I then considered playing school volleyball the following year. This is why I wanted to challenge myself by playing a new complex sport. I shower up the first day of tryouts being excited and anxious, until the coach asked for everyone’s physical form, which I did not have. I was told I had to sit and watch or just leave, because I could not play without a physical form. I was being understanding, so I decided to sit…

    I walk into cheerleading tryouts (confidence radiates from my smile) this is moment of truth for my seventh-grade year. I’ve seen every “Bring it on” ever made, so I am pretty much a cheerleading professional. Everyone is beginning to warm-up and stretch, so I begin to follow what everyone else is doing. But after the first few minutes I soonly realise that I should have watched a few less “Bring it on” movies and maybe just the high school cheer squad. Despite being completely wrong about cheer…
