Look back through my post history.
The sad truth is, you may think you will play on the team because you love the game and are willing to work hard and do everything you need to, but there is still a very big chance of you getting cut. We had about ten kids try out for the team this year. A lot of them gave the reason you gave for trying out. They love the game, they have the desire to improve. The thing is, those two things are great to have, but it goes way beyond that. It even goes beyond having a solid base of skills to play with. It is knowing how to play and what to do. I am not saying don't try or get down on yourself. Go in and try as hard as possible and kill it. Make an impression on the coach and the rest of the team and if you don't make it, you don't make it. There is always a next time.
