Tips for Youth Football Players

  1. Prioritize Academics over Athletics
     
  2. Be Coachable
    Even if you aren't an athlete,  being coachable is one of life’s most important skills. Being coachable will help you learn, improve, and be more productive.
     
  3. Respect Your Teammates and Opponents
     
  4. Practice with Purpose Every Day
    Ask why. Why are you practicing? What is your goal? Set small goals that you can reach each day. Doing so will make you feel accomplished because you’ll be able to see progress.
     
  5. Self-Reflect Every Night
     Self-reflection is about self-improvement, being self-aware, and getting better. It can help you become a better leader, be happier, and learn for mistakes. Ask yourself questions like what did I actually do today? What am I proud of? How did I lead, what did I learn, what would I do differently?
     
  6. Avoid Soft Drinks and Juices
    The biggest risk for regular sugary drinkers is the excess calories. Studies have shown that consumption of soft drinks is linked with tooth decay and diabetes, and it also seems to be bad for your bones.
     
  7. Eat a Clean, Robust Breakfast Every Day
    The food you consume in the morning gives you fuel to tackle the day, dictates your energy level and impacts overall well-being. Consuming protein first thing in the morning poses a number of benefits including improving alertness and controlling your appetite throughout the rest of your day.
     
  8. Get Seven or Eight Hours of Sleep Every Night
    According to Muscle and Fitness, sleep is critical for exercise recovery. It gives your body the chance to repair, recharge, and regrow during sleep. 
     
  9. Have Fun and be Humble
