Be a Student

September 30, 2017


“Be a student. Every game is an opportunity for learning and improving. Don’t dwell on mistakes but use them as a means of

motivating yourself to be better the next time out. You will find you’ve built a sort of database that you can mentally sift 

through when presented with game situations…Talk to those you trust- your partners, your assigner or your mentor- about

your game and discuss any concerns you may have. If you made a mistake, ask what could have been done to prevent it.

Perhaps you had a bad experience with a player or coach. Ask those who know how it could have been managed better. That

is where the real learning takes place.” January 2017, p. 74
