Tips & Drills
This is essential in ALL sports. Bonding develops chemistry between players on & off the court. This could be as simple as playing Duck, Duck, Goose! or running a relay on the court. Teams with great chemistry tend to understand one another's personalities and strengths/weaknesses, which ultimately helps players work better together on the court.
A good stretch helps keep you from cramping.
Always have the right attitude so the coach will know that you're there to play.
All athletes can improve their athletic performance by determining goals and outlining steps that they can take to achieve those goals.
Recovery After Injuries
Active rest will help in recovery and regeneration after sports related injuries. A brisk walk or slow swim is considered active rest. Also, a sports massage will help reduce muscle fatigue.
Do not increase training time or intensity by more than 10% at a time. This should help reduce injuries.
Don't simply practice the skills that you are good at. Challenge yourself to learn new skills and practice them. The more you learn and master, the more valuable you are to your team!
Discovering Your Talent
