When I was a kid. My dad was my coach, and we didn’t know a lot. He’d spend hours watching matches from the NCAA tournament, world championship, Olympic Games, etc. to try to find skills and techniques that worked at the highest level of our sport. After years of this we began to really understand the sport and work through positions that way, but it was a long process that took a lot of trial and error. A platform like this that includes some of the top athletes in America would’ve been a great tool for me as a kid, and I’m thankful to be a part of something like that! Check out my personal link for my technique library and mindset training videos. Let’s go! #LiveTrained
