:( aw, i'm sorry. is this so it'll look good on your college applications or something? 'cuz if you're not into all that competition & stuff, if you don't make the team - maybe you could talk to your school counsellor about what other things you could do - volunteer work at a nursing home, kid's hospital, library? or different clubs at your school you might enjoy more - newspaper, drama, whatever? if you have a fallback plan, then maybe you/your parents won't feel so pressured. . .
