I really appreciate all of your responses.
I am tasked with selecting a 5 member team for an upcoming tournament.
I started my job in April as the coach of a high school and college team.
I am curious to know if there are certain principles that I should be aware of when deciding.
I wish it were as easy as having an in-house tournament and letting the students battle it out.
However, there are so many dynamics at play like work ethic, attitude, weight, how they might match up with other teams, politics, age, etc.
I'd love to get your perspectives.
