He didn't end up trying out on either day---and seems happy about his decision. We signed him up for rec soccer. If he hates it, or regrets his decision after playing in the fall, we can talk to Campton about getting him on a team for Spring. (They have been known to do that for families that have been part of their club for a few years.)
Nate had other teammates that didn't show up for tryouts either. That was a surprise....no one said beforehand that they weren't going to do it again this next year. One of his teammates called our house after the first day, very concerned Nate wasn't there. That was sweet.
I am sure it will all be fine. I know I will appreciate the less hectic practice schedule for him!
