Don't Doubt Your Abilities


2. Don't overthink or doubt your abilities because many times you’re better than you give yourself credit for.

When you overthink your actions while on the court often that means you aren’t “ in the moment” or you’re not focused on just playing this ball you have right now … you’re worried about what happened in the past.

Relax and Focus On Following Instructions


5. If you feel distracted because you see so many different athletes competing for the same position you are… relax and focus on following instructions .. coaches are always looking for athletes that follow directions quickly.. regardless of what their specific team needs are.

Breathe and Better The Ball


6. If you feel overwhelmed, just keep breathing deeply and work on “bettering” the ball. Make each ball that you touch just a bit better than the ball you received… and you’ll be fine. Pinky promise!

Play Hard and Talk, Talk, Talk


7. Compete, play hard and TALK, Talk, Talk on the court. (Not when coach is talking) but in every other moment .. because that helps you stay out of your head but more importantly that helps you get noticed.

Quiet players are hard to read and hard to help, (and ain’t nobody got time for that during a fast moving match) but players that communicate constantly are easier to notice and they sound like leaders.

Good luck to you (and your friends and teammates) during tryouts this weekend!
