Make Your Opponent Uncomfortable

Your objective when you are playing is to make your opponent uncomfortable, end of story. The more uncomfortable you make them feel, the more mistakes they will make. The more mistakes they will make; the more opportunities you will get. The more opportunities you will get, the more you can take advantage of those situations by going offensive to end the rally and/or score a point, or force your opponent to go defense.

Bouncing Back

Bouncing back after losing a match is not easy to do, but it is a MUST if you want to be successful and build your championship game. It’s inevitable that we ALL win and lose matches, but it is what we do when we lose a match that counts the most. Losing should be a learning experience, NOT beating yourself up experience. Just ask yourself, “Did I play well and lose? Or did I play poorly and lose?” The key is to learn from your mistakes and remember your successes. Let go of all the negative thoughts, and remember your great

It not only works in racquetball, but in many other sports…let’s take a quick look: 1-Basketball – If you had one second left in a game and you were down by one point

Coming Back From An Injury

NO ONE is exempt from injury as it is part of being involved in sports. It can range from minor, like a light strain or pulled muscle, to severe, like a torn ligament/meniscus or major tendinitis. Racquetball is a racquet sport that is quick with lots of change of direction and explosion so be as prepared as possible. In my career I have been a witness to so many injured racquetball players (including myself with a slight tear in the rotator cuff) who took the necessary steps to comeback from their injury as strong, if not stronger than before: -Rocky
