Missy Meharg presents an excellent overview of how her practice sessions translate into success on the game field. Coach Meharg discusses the value of practice session competition and what it can contribute toward confidence, increasing the intensity of practice sessions, and creating an environment of competition that fosters quality, teamwork, and unity. She breaks the video into four sections; skills, warm-up games, even number competitions, and "Competition Day," (a competitive confidence building practice the day before a competition). She outlines several drills in each section that are useable for teams at any level and also suggests drills that will inspire countless variations for teams at any level. Teach your team "How to Battle" before they take the field.
