Be the player
Due to the lack of time a coach gets with their players, they have to focus on teaching you the game, skills and team play. They do not necessarily have the time, resources and knowledge to improve your athletic ability and performance. Likewise, most clubs do not have access to S&C coaches, Nutritionists, Sports Psychologists and Therapists.

Most simply, nutrition is important for athletes because it provides a source of energy required to perform. The foods we eat impact on our strength, training, performance and recovery. Not only is the type of food important for sports nutrition but the times we eat throughout the day also has an impact on our performance levels and our bodies ability to recover after exercising. Each individual can have different needs to get the balance right.

Once all the training and preparation is done, one of the biggest contributors to elite performance is the mindset of the athlete. Mindset is your mental outlook and how it can help or hinder you in the moment of competition.
Many athletes think that natural ability will take them to their goals but many fall short. Those with the right mindset to achieve success will often outshine those with more natural ability. Mindset can determine your ability to achieve your goals and perform to the highest level.
Improving knowledge, both of the game and of yourself can help you flourish. Knowledge and education are vital to progress in life and in Basketball. Knowledge is also a key factor in recovering from injuries.
