List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?

• Strength and conditioning because you have to prepare your body and mind to be able to perform in practice, and if you’re out of shape you cannot reap the benefits from film because you’re underperforming and you won’t be able to take what you learned from film onto the field being out of shape. Film study is second the player can critique themselves to get better for the next time they step out on the field. Practice is third because you take what you learned in film and use it to your advantage on the field.
