Teams Work Together
Notes about sports - how to be on a team, win and lose gracefully, and why we practice
Good morning. Whenever there's a lot on the line, the challenge for the player is to relax and play loose. The natural tendency is to tighten up and feel nervous, which makes it harder to do your best. It's like walking on a curb without falling off is easy. But put that curb 100 ft. in the air and you'd never go near it. I don't have any magic way to help you relax in this stressful year. But maybe just remembering to play loose, thinking about it from time to time, will help you achieve some measure of success. It's not easy I know. But it's important to try. So be calm, relax and play loose Joanna! And remember that I love you!
