Impress your coach before the end of the season
Work your butt off to ace tough moves
Just ‘cause you’ve got one game left doesn’t mean the clock’s run out completely. Mark down all the practices you have remaining and include a goal for each one. Maybe you wanna slip just one ball past your team’s ace goalie. Maybe you wanna nail that header. Maybe you wanna score top relay honors. Whatever it is, do your very best to accomplish it.
Be Miss Congeniality
So you weren’t voted captain? Didn’t make the starting line-up? Got tons of crit from your coach for that botched save? Brush it off, slap on a smile and go get ‘em, tiger. Be as helpful, cheerful and agreeable as you can be. That means volunteering to grab fresh towels or water, being a sweetie to your snobby forward—whatever it takes to show everyone that you’re a team player. Good behavior will gain your friends…friends who just might be willing to help you get that move you’ve been missing down pat.
Pep it up
We know it’s hot and you’re sweaty and tired. But that doesn’t mean you can slack off now if you wanna catch Coach’s eye. Grab a towel to wipe the sweat off your brow and then trot back to the lineup for drills. Always perform to the best of your ability. You might not be perfect, but your dedication definitely counts.
