How To Deal With Getting Cut

Elliot Trotter, founder and editor-in-chief of Skyd Magazine also plays for the Seattle Rainmakers in the MLU.

From the time he started playing in college, he’s been cut many times and sometimes from teams he thought he should make. Most notably he’s been cut from Seattle Sockeye 6 times, never making it past the first round of cuts. Hear him talk about how he learned from those failures to help push him to become a better player. As he says, perhaps the only way to learn is through failure. This is a great video if you’ve ever been cut, have just been cut or are about to try out for a team and would like some perspective going into tryouts. Sometimes a team is looking for a certain type of player – that doesn’t mean you’re not a good player; sometimes you’re just not what they’re looking for.
