West Potomac Spring Sports Tryouts

With spring sport tryouts underway, student-athletes should be prepared and as confident as possible. So, here is everything you need to know before your tryout. Tryouts for the following sports will be held on the week of February 19-25: lacrosse, soccer, softball, baseball, tennis and track and field. 


Coaches are looking for not just raw talent but also a player’s potential, teamwork, and attitude. They look for players who stay positive and let your passion for the game shine through. Good luck, and here’s to hoping all the Wolverines knock it out of the park, score the winning goal, or cross the finish line with a truckload of static happiness.

 Getting ready for the season is key to performing your best. Here are some expanded tips to make sure you’re totally prepped: 


  1. Sleep Like a Champion: Aim for at least 8 hours of quality sleep each night. Your body repairs and strengthens itself while you snooze, so don’t miss your sleep. 
  2. Stretching is Essential: Dedicate time to a dynamic warm-up before workouts and a thorough stretch session after. This increases flexibility and decreases the risk of injuries. 
  3. Consistent Cardio: Incorporate regular jogs or sprints into your routine to boost stamina. Even a quick run can make a big difference in your endurance on the field or court. 
  4. Nutrition is Your Fuel: Eat a balanced diet rich in proteins, whole grains, and fresh veggies and fruits. Proper nutrition gives you the energy to train hard and recover faster. 
  5. Hydration is Key: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, not just during practice. Staying hydrated helps with muscle function and overall performance. 
  6. Practice Makes Perfect: Put in the extra time to practice your skills. Whether it’s shooting hoops, dribbling, or perfecting your swing, consistent practice will sharpen your game. Remember, all these elements work together to create a strong, resilient, and agile athlete. You’ve got this.
