Game Day


Everyday is not game day! Game, match or meet day is special. That is what you point for and prepare for on the other days. What you do in the days leading to game day will determine your performance on game day. To be the best on game day requires being a “24 Hour Athlete.” It is more than the two hours of training, it is the other 22 hours that make the difference. It is total commitment, being all in all the time. Excellence in life determines excellence on the playing field. Win the day! Win the workout! Doing that gives you a chance to win on game day. Game day is special because of the commitment and preparation leading to it.
