10 steps to get better at sports

As with most things in life, there are steps you can take to enhance your skills and proficiency, including learning from others, getting advice from specialists, and preparing and planning.

We’ve compiled a list of hints and tips to improve your sports performance, some are straightforward and fairly simple while some are a bit more complex.

We hope they will help you to start seeing improvements fairly quickly, let us know what has worked for you.

Improve your sports performance

 

 

 

  • Understand your strengths and weaknesses

This is a very important step to take before you do anything else. You may think you’re David Beckham on the pitch but the reality is probably very different. Take a good look at what you’re good at, and then look at what you struggle with and you’ll get an idea of what work needs doing. If necessary ask others who will probably be less objective and give you an honest answer.

  • Create a plan

Using what you’ve learned from step one create an action plan. Look at your weaknesses ie stamina, headers, blocking opponents etc and work out how to improve on these skills. Once you’ve started this, look at your strengths and see how you can become even better! Set achievable goals to help you improve and you’ll see your skills growing in no time.

  • Get a coach

If you’re really serious about your sport consider getting a coach to help you. They will undoubtedly be brutally honest with you and will push you to the limits, but that is exactly what you need. Don’t make excuses, listen to them and follow their instructions. That’s their job after all!

Improve your sports performance

  • Practice, practice, practice

This should be your mantra. We all know that practice makes perfect, so what are you waiting for? Make time for regular practice sessions with and without your coach, the more you do, that quicker you’ll see those improvements.

  • Understand the game/sport

Take time to understand whatever sport you’re taking part in. Read the rules so you know what is and isn’t acceptable, what is expected and how best to get ahead.

  • Get fit and stay fit

There’s no point doing all this practice if you’re going to spend your downtime eating pizza, drinking beer and slobbing in front of the tv. The odd chill out is fine, but don’t make it a habit. Try to eat a healthy diet, avoid fatty foods and keep your alcohol under the recommended limits. Maintain your activity levels, even when you don’t feel like it. Your body will thank you for it.

  • Train as an individual

If you play a team sport it’s important to do some individual training. This will give you a different type of workout, and use different muscles, as well as being fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Build your confidence

As your skills improve so will your confidence, so it’s important to believe in yourself and let your confidence shine through. Remember not to get arrogant, or complacent. No-one likes a big-head!

  • Be serious about preparation

Being fully prepared before an event or session is essential. Get a good nights sleep, reduce your alcohol intake and get plenty of slow-release carbs to keep you going. Warm up properly beforehand to help prevent injuries.

  • Get expert advice

Learn from those who excel in your chosen sport, watch matches/events and youtube videos, and study the athletes to see what makes them so good. You’re sure to pick up some great advice from these sporting legends.

So what are you waiting for, get out there and get improving!

Finally, motivation is everything so order some bespoke medals from us to give you a little boost!

 


Designing a medal from us is as easy as 123…

When you order a medal from us we make it as easy as possible to get it right. Designing a medal starts with choosing your style from our range of traditional, modern or Olympic-style metal medals, or our contemporary acrylic styles in round, square, leaf or bespoke options.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Add your design

Once you’ve chosen your style, and which colour you’d like (bronze, silver or gold, or a mixture depending on your event), it’s time to think about the design. If you’re ordering for a club you might want to include the logo or badge, we can even add photo’s of your venue to add a unique element. Details of your event are essential if that’s what your medals are for. If you’re ordering for different levels or positions you can personalise each medal. There is space on the order form for specifying exactly what you want each medal to say.
