Everyone wants to be a superstar athlete, however there is a lot of competition these days to make it to the big leagues in any sport. If you want to be a professional sports athlete, you have to know all the tricks of the trade to rise up above the rest of the pack.


Practice makes Perfect

It’s obvious that to play your sport better than anyone, you have to practice your skills with lots of repetition… for example for basketball you have to shoot 100 free throws every day, for hockey you have to shoot a slap shot until you break your parent’s washing machine and dryer, to make it to the Tour de France you have to ride your bike up the big hill everyday.


Get Into Improv

Pitching Technique can always be ImprovisedPitching Technique can always be Improvised

The big secret to advancing your skills past everyone else is to improvise. Improvising your skills means to change things up a little bit every once in a while. For example, if you are a baseball pitcher and your fastball is stuck at about 60 mph… change it up! Try striding your first step a little bit longer, bring in your elbow a little bit tighter, or try to reach higher when you’re following through. These little improvisations are things that will help you learn how to always advance your skills.


Quality Coaches

Have you ever noticed that a lot of kids with parents who are pro athletes will often become pro athletes in the same sport? These kids have a huge advantage over everyone else because they have access to a pro athlete’s tips and tricks 24/7. But don’t get discouraged if you don’t have parents who were pro athletes, the message here is that you should try to find coaches, schools, or pro-athletes that are willing to answer your questions.

Eating right will give you the potential to be the bestEating right will give you the potential to be the best

The biggest thing that most kids often underestimate as important to becoming an athlete is their diet. We all know how good junk food tastes and how bad broccoli and spinach tastes, so this is the tip that kids don’t want to listen to. But if you can change your diet to a healthy one full of protein, calcium, fruits and vegetables etc… you’re gonna be stronger than the competition.


Friends and Foes

Surrounding yourself with quality teammates and competitors is the best way to get better at your sport. By having great teammates or opponents, it pushes you to try harder and that always results in getting better. In the NHL, the Staal brothers have all become superstars and they all say they owe it to playing with each other and against each other until their mom was calling them in for bed every night.
