While there are a ton of new tournaments every year, it is not necessary to go to every one. A lot of club teams will have a handful of mandatory tournaments, but if you are able to go to a few on your own either as a free agent or with another team, this list should give you an idea of what to focus on.

When you are choosing which club team to play on, you should consider quality of the coaches, quality of the tournament schedule, and pricing. Some teams charge for the entire year at once, and expect players to participate in all of the tournaments, some charge by tournament. Also know what your goals and expectations are while you’re playing for a club team. Are you there to have fun with your friends, or to learn from a new coach, or to get exposure to recruiting? Make sure to ask the questions that are appropriate to understanding what each of those experiences could look like.
