Fitness Level

It’s important to get yourself in the best shape possible. Not only do you perform better when you are in shape, but you also prevent injury. Every sport will be a little different in how the athletes are trained, but having a base level of conditioning is necessary.

Skill Level 

If you love the sport you play, this should be a fun one. Master the skill. Master your sport. Train with a purpose. Your improvement, especially if you are looking to play in college, depends on your skill level and your commitment to improving.
