The hard work for each sports season begins with the very intensive pre-season training. Nobody likes this season because work and training are often very boring and painful. But this has to be done so that the athletes are optimally prepared for the strains of the competition phase.
The endurance, strength, speed, and volume of the skills must be achieved. Not only the amount of work but also the quality invested in the preparation phase is crucial. If players without heart and soul save and train without value, it will show up later in the competition as fatigue, injury or lack of sharpness in their performance. Top performances in sport are not possible under these circumstances. The quality of pre-season preparation is even more important in youth sports.
