Providing Feedback for Parents, Players
Athletes’ skills and abilities can change throughout a season. Some players might give a great performance at tryouts after working all offseason, but then taper off during the season. Others might start slow at tryouts and excel during the year as he or she gets more experience. Evaluating players throughout the season allows us to have the ability to track how athletes progress at various parts of the year.
Players also receive feedback on what they need to work on during the season. Evaluating players throughout the year gives us an opportunity to track how athletes are progressing in those key areas to see if they’ve improved. Getting this regular feedback helps athletes know if they’re making improvements, or if they need to try other training methods.
Prepare for the Season
While feedback can identify immediate needs for improvement or extra training, it can also help players prepare for next year. If certain skills still need improving, ongoing evaluations will show any progress the athlete has made, and what still needs to be addressed before next year’s tryouts.
