Playing Out of Your Mind
Coaching Article by Samson Dubina
 
When Olympic athletes perform their best, they play smoothly, moving into position hitting strong shots without overthinking about the technical details of their strokes. There are two main things that they do really well.
#1 They establish strong basic techniques and get thousands of hours of repetitions.
 #2 They trust their skills and allow their bodies to work automatically.
 
So what about you?

Psalm 19:7-11

Bible Verse of the Week
 
 
 
 
Psalm 19:7-11
 
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
