First of all, one important thing I learned was to have a positive attitude when practicing. Having a positive attitude helped me be motivated to practice a certain skill over and over. Having a negative attitude will not help me get better but it could also slow me down to reach my goals.
Next important thing I learned was to always listen to your coach. The coaches are not there to scold me, but to give me feedback so that I can be a better player to help my team win. My coaches are very helpful to motivate me to do my best. Coaches are there to share their knowledge so I can do a certain skill at the best of my ability. For example, my coaches always tell me to stay low when I tackle, and so believe I am a better tackler now because of that advice.
The third thing I learned when practicing, was to learn new skills. I learned that practice makes perfect, so by practicing new skills we can get better at it. One thing I really worked on was my pass catching and I not only practiced during football practice, but I practiced at home with my dad, and sometimes my teammates will come over, and we would practice on our own. And eventually, I feel more confident when I am catching the ball.
In conclusion, having a positive attitude and open mind to listen to your coaches will help you get better at achieving your goals. Practice, practice, practice, is important for you to get better in whatever you do.
