        •        Film Study, Practice, strength and conditioning. Film study is most important because it can be a mirror for you, to show you what you can’t see. It allows you to study yourself and study your opponent in order to either fix a problem about yourself, or realizing your opponents. Also allows you to see what strategy works best to defeat your opponent. Practice makes perfect and seeing what film shows doesn’t mean anything if you don’t execute visually and mentally on the field. Strength and conditioning while very important I have last, while you spend hours in film and hours in practice, I find those more important because they deal with the  psyche and mental part of the game. While strength and conditioning gets your body in shape to endure and break limits throughout the season.
