Synopsis

If you read my first book, Buy a Game, you know what happened: I finally made the team my senior year, and the rest is history. I walked on in college, got recruited to another college after my freshman season, and played nine years of professional basketball in eight countries. 

During this process, in 2006, I began publishing videos to a new site called YouTube. Over the course of more than 7,000 videos, many players asked questions about a shared challenge that has kept myriad players from advancing in basketball: performing at tryouts. 

Some of the most common questions: 

  • How can I best impress the coach at tryouts? 
  • What can I do to stand out?
  • What position should I play at tryouts? 
  • What if I'm not allowed to play my normal position during tryouts? 
  • How can I get the returning players to respect my game?
  • What mindset should I have during tryouts? 
  • What can I do to better my skills with only a week’s time before tryouts? 
  • Should I get hyped up before tryouts or remain calm and steady? 
  • I didn't make it this year. Can you tell me exactly what I should do to get ready for tryouts next season? 
  • I feel like my career will be over before it starts if I don't make the team - can you please help me get ready for tryouts? 

To address these questions and others on the subject of basketball-team tryouts, I created this workbook. 

By completing this workbook, you will: 

  • Know exactly what will be expected of you at tryouts
  • Understand your ideal mindset for playing your best and know how to get into this mindset at any time
  • Be able to relax yourself and defeat any possible nerves or performance anxiety before tryouts 
  • Perform to the best of your ability at tryouts, definitively securing the roster spot you covet
