Teach the basics of the game.

 

Practice, practice, practice. As with anything in life, learning and practicing the basics of the game is essential to becoming a sports champion. Football champions master the basic skills of blocking, tackling, passing, catching, running, and learning the plays by practicing the correct techniques over and over again. Failure to perform them correctly during a game can result in costly mistakes that lead to penalties or even defeat.

Watch your favorite team play their next game and you will see players performing in textbook fashion. If they hadn’t understood the importance of learning and performing the basics of the game early on, they never would have made it in professional football in the first place.
