Play your best by having a preparation plan / routine. See the links above for great articles on how to prepare for a match mentally and physically.
Coaches urge players to be prepared to play matches and participate in drills on the first day. Beginners with little or no experience should prepare by taking lessons and playing as much as possible before tryouts start. Due to a high number of players and only two coaches, we do not give individual lessons. Be prepared by having basic rally, volley, serving and strategic skills by the first practice.
