7 questions for Players
1. Have you asked your coach to help you improve one of your WEAKNESSES?
2. Do you have a true UNDERSTANDING of your role? Has your coach given you one?
3. How did you preformed in your teams BIGGEST games?
4. Are you a box score junkie and only STATS define you as a player?
5. How do you prepare yourself MENTALLY for practice and games? Is it ENOUGH?
