This is our first "What's Your View?" column of the 2013/2014 season and what better topic to kick-off the seasonal year than a critical look at the tryouts process.

BOTC launched our Tryouts Forum in 2011 and during that first season, we struggled to simply have every club disclose their tryout fees and the standard who, what, where, and when information in their tryout flyers.

In 2012, BOTC asked clubs to disclose as much as possible regarding seasonal fees and detail the features which each student-athlete would receive.

This year, some clubs have raised the bar even further with early disclosure of their coaching staff and the age groups that they will cover.

So, BOTC wants to know : What's Your View?

Are you getting all of the information you need to make an informed decision? What additional detail would help your decision making when it comes to choosing tryouts to attend?

Let us know.
