I would anticipate that our Olympians are some of the best when it comes to preparing for an event mentally before you do anything physically. The amount of pressure they are under for one moment after four years of committment is truly amazing. The question for all athletes is how important is it to you? Whatever your answer is I will tell you your answer is how much time you put into it and then you can get a better answer. Your edge is in your mind when it comes to performance when you are able to step out there "in the zone" without distraction, without tensing up, and without worry of the outcome. Be in the moment, enjoy the present, be confident in your preparation, and rise to the opportunity. Oh, and one more thing, YOU GET TO DO THIS!! Coach Bin

The month of February is a very important month and I am not just talking about Valentine's Day. This is the month where teams separate due to their motivation and commitment to the process. If you are going to be successful and finish as a champion, how you practice, how you think today has 100% affect on your ultimate outcome. Questions to ask 1) What did you think about before practice? Champion Answer-Goals for practice, how am I going to get better, how can I make my team better, I am going to win this drill Second Place Answer-I hope practice is short or easy or we don't have that drill or I can't wait to do this after practice 2) What is your motivation today? (Not at the beginning of season, but the immediate) Champion Answer-To get better at...., To win ....., To get more playing time..... Second Place Answer-Hard to come up with an answer? Champions are process driven. They do not get detoured or burned out by the process or adversity of what is happening in their season. They believe they are the solution and don't blame others as the problem. They have energy, find ways to put in more than what is currently asked, and they are still 100% committed to making themselves and the team better. They are not satisfied but they are also not defeated. Go be a champion today and then repeat it again as if it was the first day you ever stepped onto the court. GO CATS! Coach Bin
