Not making a team
Transcript of Not making a team
A presentation by Kyle Thielsch
Say the team you did not make was a soccer team. To deal with your stress, you practice as much as you can, blowing off friends and homework. As a consequence, your grades might drop and your friends might drift away. Or, you might just be dejected and give up playing soccer. However, if you enjoyed playing the sport and you decide to quit, it might just make you sad.
5 positive ways to deal with it
1. Continue to work hard at the sport, and go for it next year. If you really love the sport, it might help you lose some stress and you'll get better!
2. Try another sport! If soccer is not your thing, go out for basketball, baseball, or track.
The stressor in this case, is that you did not make the team.
How To cope with not making a team
3. Talk to the coach and see what you can do to make the team next year. It never hurts to ask. Chances are, he'll like your dedication and keep his eye on you throughout the year.
4. Play for the JV team, or a club team near you. The more you play, the better you'll get, and most varsity coaches pull up JV players at the end of the year.
5. If you really don't enjoy the sport, don't play it. Find another hobby! It doesn't have to be a sport. Learn to play an instrument or become a collector. There are countless opportunities, and not making a sports team is not the end of the world.
