​Start to think about your goals for next year NOW.

Do you want to have better mechanics?

Do you want a better schedule?

Do you want to get a playoff assignment?

Do you want to get on the State Playoff list?

Whatever it is, write down measurable and attainable goals for the off-season and start working on them.

Spend time at off-season tournaments to work on weaknesses in your game.
