Winning Answer

We always start with a practice the night before we leave for a tournament. 
1. Coach has us say one thing we liked about practice, and one thing we want to try and be better at before the tournament. 
2. Once we arrive at the hotel, the coach brings all the players together, and hands out bags with positive cards and snacks in them. 
3. We head out for a team meal. 
4. Game day! 
5. Everybody is at the field one hour early. 
6. We start by having a team job with a different leader each time. Foul pole to foul pole, then we start our warm up process, high knees, butt kicks, jumping jacks and push ups. Then, we stretch as a team. We have a different leader here as well because our coach wants us to grow up to be leaders. 
7. Everybody must high five and tap gloves before we move on. 
8. Now it’s on to the team drills. We start by catching balls barehanded, and catching grounders barehanded. 25 for each player. Then we move on to catch – can’t ever have the same partner during the whole weekend. Learn and grow with all your teammates. Once we move to hitting, we field for all the hitters barehand, coach makes us get down and field every ball with two hands. We cheer on the hitters. 
9. Coach will bring us together after this. We all have to give information on what we did good during warm-ups and what we think we need to focus on. Coach announces the pitcher, then we play. 10U – we still got a lot of work to do!
10. On to the field. We walk in number order with our bags. We get to the field, we get loose, and we get to work hoping to play well enough to win. The whole game, things will go wrong, but it’s how you handle them with your teammates and coaches that will make you better and be a better team. 
11. After every game, we meet as a team. Coach talks, then he picks one player to talk about the game. 
12. Then, it’s off to the team meal. We all love eating together. We are FAMILY!! 
13. After that, you already know it’s pool time!! Let the bonding continue, and let us continue to be better with each other each day. 
Thank you for your time. I hope you enjoyed my story.
