Finding a new summer team

"Long time listener, first time caller"

What is the best way to find out teams who may be looking for players? Our summer team has been together for 6 years and is starting to unravel now that we've hit high school ages. Kids are being pushed to play on certain teams with their teammates, etc.

There are only a handful of teams listed on SWOL in our age group. And I've seen a couple postings here. We've been out of SWOL for a few years, so not really interested in being back in the league. And are there other resources to look at the I'm missing?

Is it desperate or pushy to reach out to a coach of team that your kid has an interest in being on that may not have tryouts listed to see if there is a fit?

I guarantee you other parents are doing it, so you might as well do it too. What teams? Just say "I am curious if you are having open tryouts" that is not pushy at all.

First be honest with yourself and/or ask for other opinions on your boy's skills. I would then reach out to the appropriate team's admin and or coach and express your interest. I would also say that there has been incredible attrition this year I terms of injuries and you might get a chance to play wit a team that you are interested in this summer.

Have him freelance for a season. Teams are always looking for help. We did, then found a great team for the next season.

One thing to consider as well is what positions the coaches sons are playing. If there are a few coaches sons playing positions your kid is interested in you may wanna look elsewhere

If you are from the SWOL region, our 15,16 and 17u teams all have non parent coaches who focus on development
