-Be a kid, have fun, go on vacation, etc. but your teammates are counting on you to improve. You will be expected to continually improve in your adult career as well.
-Don’t assume future success based on prior success or experience.
-Select teams and games are beneficial, but not as a replacement for individual skills and shooting practice. Ask yourself: How many shots are you getting?
