I saw a posting on Instagram for Pateadores 07 and 08 "Pre-Academy" Tryouts being held on Monday, November 12th. What the hell? The SCDSL 07 season still has games being played until November 18th. I thought December tryouts was crazy enough. But having tryouts while the season isn't even finished? Is anyone advocating for the kids out there? How about a little bit of a break for a 10 year old (08) player before the pressure of trying out for a "Pre"-academy team.
