- Strength and conditioning because You must be in great shape to play this game this helps you keep going when everyone else can’t or it gives you that extra energy and push in the fourth when your opponents are tired. Film study is second because you must know what’s coming your way by studying film it will make thing slower in the game because you know what’s about to come at you. Last is practice because practice helps make perfect practice teach you techniques and how to take on blocks that are coming your way so you can be ready for everything you see on film.
