I'm genuinely curious ... why are there try-outs for kids community sports? What is the purpose? Do some kids not make the team?

As a kid, I never had to try-out to play t-ball. Every kid played, we shook hands at the end of every game, and had fun.

It says...Little League try outs, Junior LL and T-ball sign-ups...doesn't say a thing about trying out for Junior LL and T-Ball...So quick to find fault on great programs run by dedicated parents and coaches..BTW...Not paid positions, just good old honest caring.

APPLES AND ORANGES THERE LITTLE LADY... TRYOUTS IT MEANS ONE THING YOUR SHOWING UP TO IMPRESS IF NOT HIT THE ROAD? HOW BOUT JUST SAY SIGN UPS

Oh my.. Mr./Mrs. CAPS LOCK, get a clue. Obviously you've never been involved with LL baseball? Yes, they do tryout. Yes they do cut. It's not 'everybody get's a cupcake.' (thanks for the line, P) ;)
the kids may get cut to a city league and still play. Just not with the better players.

I'm NOT trying to find fault with the coaches or the program! Honestly, I'm curious. Do kids get cut if they aren't good enough at try outs? If someone will answer that question, then I'll judge and give an opinion. But I've seen this trend in several local communities that have posted here. As a parent of a kid who in a few years might potentially join one of these programs, I'm curious.

I'm hoping that those with experience in these programs could answer the question here.

It's called segregation when you make cuts. Then that leads to bullying down the road. Kids don't see it at that level but as the years go bye. The better kids start thinking there better and everyone wants to be better than someone and that leads to the Popular kids and then that leads to bullying.. Why not even the kids up without cutting them... Make it a team of all skill levels and let all play so all can learn without being pointed out they aren't as well off as some kids. Stop it before it grows...

Ok...no competition at LL or what ever sports, spelling bees, test scores,or musical talent of young players...your gonna hate my opinion! Excelling in what ya do in younger years is what grown-up life is all about..Now you say some think they are better than others that leads to bullying...if ya think someone is better than you are then it tells me you hold a low self-esteem of yourself. So work hard, play hard or sit on your butt and complain with lack of being able to man/woman up to sign your beliefs.

Even at ages 9-12 there are big differences among the kids. Only fifteen can make the LL team, and there's certainly no shame in trying out and not making it. Play junior LL, work on your skills, and enjoy the game.
I coached before and never saw the bullying by the players selected; in fact we made a point to tell the kids to NOT make the others feel bad about getting cut. The kids always handled it better than their parents.
It's not segregation to select the fifteen evaluated to be the best. There's always going to be differences of opinion who those 15 should be, but parents of the players not chosen shouldn't begin making excuses and having their kids believe something that isn't true. Encourage them to be their best whatever level they play at.

Or you could ruin your program and have two teams like coudersport!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Sure, Coudy used to win more titles with only the one team, but having two teams hasn't ruined their program. The talent is diluted compared to one squad, but thirty kids get to play in LL instead of 15. Coudersport teams have always been filled with great kids even if they don't finish first all the time. More to it than that anyways.

Wow,,,settle down people! Comparing Shinglehouse to Coudy is ridiculous...First of all if Shinglehouse did suit up 2 LL teams it would probably end the Junior LL program. There wouldn't be more than one or maybe two teams on a good year when the numbers are up. Figure it out,,,more kids would be unable to play..
Here's an idea, each town take care of their own business !

I'm really tired of the sense of entitlement many people in this country have these days. If you want to make the travel team, then work harder than the next kid to get better and make the team. Its no different than having a job or owning a business when you're an adult. Those that work hard and try to make themselves better will generally succeed. Teach your children this and they will be better for it.
Give em hell Cheryl!
