  2. Confidence – As long as you gave your best everyday in training, you have nothing to fear.
  3. Trust – Trust your instincts. If you feel it, go for it!!!
  4. Listen – Your coaches know best, do what they say.
  5. Strategy – It’s important to never fall behind. Bring them to your best positions, get ahead & stay ahead. Capitalize on mistakes & finish them when they break or get desperate.
  6. Awareness- The first minute & last minute are the most important times. Start strong & keep fighting until the very end. It’s not over until your hand is raised.
