2 weeks tops before tryouts. Its a new coach so its going to be an even fight for all particpants. Any suggestions to prime myself? I'm running a few miles everyday. About to get started with the suicides. Doing dribbling drills as well as shooting workouts.

Sounds like you're already doing it. One clever thing...ask the coach if there is anything special he'd like to see guys working o before the season starts. If anything, he will be impressed you are showing initiative and a mature level of participation.

Trust me.

I remember on our first try-out we did conditioning for 35 minutes and only scrimmaged for about 15 mins. This conditioning weeded out a lot of people. Some of my friends were soccer players and were also trying out. However, they couldn't handle the conditioning because it was so much different then what they were used to doing in Soccer.

I'm not sure how a Soccer player would gas out playing hoops. Being is shape, is being in shape. Perhaps they were out of shape Footballers.

I can see an adjustment from being an in-shape soccer player to an in-shape hiker, but soccer to basketball seems like it would translate fairly well lol.

If anything soccer players are in better shape given less stoppages in play

We did lots of explosive exercises which builds up the lactic acid in your muscles. Like squat jumps over hurdles etc. I think in the endurance category a footballer can easily beat a baller.

This.

But in terms of physical strength and short sprints, the average guard beats the average footballer

I just play pickup every now and again at uni, havent played for a few months because I re injured my back. But my game is like reggie evans with a better shot and passing. lol I pride myself more on getting a rebound than actually scoring for some reason.

a) because I have competitive experience in both sports

b) because of the way the games are played. soccer is more about timing your runs, than it is straight out sprinting. the closest thing in soccer to a fast break is a `counter attack`which isn`t nearly as fast as a fast break.

I play in an organized rec league with a group of friends. I'm probably going to play in another one that starts up in January, rather than playing Sponge Hockey. I'll likely end up playing more ball this year than I've played in the previous 2 years combined.

I'm joining a pretty cool men's league this year - website is updated weekly and the site has game by game stats for the past 5 years or so. Local newspaper also covers the league. Draft format so all the teams are fairly even.

stop saying it with such assuredness. comparing profession soccer athletes to basketball athletes, or even rep athletes of both sports. their muscle mass is focused in different areas, basketball players tend to have more of a build overall, where as soccer players keep a lean upper body (most positions, not defence, defensive mid) and tree trunks as legs. they're different sports, requiring different things from the athletes.

but seriously, stop saying everything with such assuredness. you wanna get an opinion across, say it, and back it up. don't just say the opinion, then call another person's backed up opinion a joke. filth...
