Don’t get caught up with your electronic devices

Grab pictures of your favorite players and some of the action but, for the most part, leave the electronics alone. The action is fast and furious, if you are trying to record plays or some of the action you may find yourself just chasing the ball. Take it from my experience, unless you’re a professional photographer, catching the picture at the right moment is difficult.

Training camp has much more coach-to-player interaction and you can often hear what’s going on. This is also a good time to learn the game or better your knowledge. The action is fast but not as fast as a game, so things are slowed down and you can get better insight into what’s going on. When position drills are going on, you can see how a player moves and focus on what makes them so good.

It’s also fun to see the new players interact with the team veterans. Pick out a player or two and watch their every movement. When they are on the sidelines are they talking to coaches, working on technique or just chatting it up with teammates? Training camp gives you a live look in on what these players are like.
