Be Proactive - Tryout Rubric/Template - Players who you Keep & Cutby Derek Sheridan Rustbelt Basketball Coaches' Network
-SAMPLE & RATIONALE-
Tryout Rubric - This document/rubric is used for the evaluation of players we kept & cut at the conclusion of our tryout sessions. It gave us pointed/specific documented rationale as to why players were kept &/or cut. This document was created after a dear coaching friend was publicly scrutinized for cutting players without giving them written documentation as to why they were cut. This situation led my staff & I to be preemptive in creating said document so we would avoid being in the situation our friend had found himself in. 3 pages $10.00
