Posted on May 14, 2012 , by junowebdesign
If you’re unfortunate enough to get injured, then you might start to feel a bit down about not being able to be involved in your wrestling team’s activities. However, don’t despair. While you might not be able to get out on the mat, there’s still plenty that you can do that can help your team as well as staying involved while you recover.
While you won’t be able to help win those all important matches, you can still contribute to off the field. In fact, having such a break can really help you to re-evaluate and reconsider your strategies and mental attitude.
Taking the time to watch your team mates and their opponents can help you to take another look at the sport as a whole. It all looks different from the outside, and looking on as a spectator can help you to identify new techniques and strategies which can help a lot when you recover.
By studying team mates and opponents, you can identify things that you need to improve in your own technique as well as things to try out once you’re better. Learning from your team mates is a great way to improve your technique. You can also keep an eye out for things that they need to develop in their strategy that might be difficult to spot from the inside.
Having a knowledgeable spectator looking on at matches is useful for the whole wrestling team. While coaches might have a lot to think about, you’ll be able to keep an eye out for the specific tendencies and weaknesses of opponents, which can provide some valuable insights.
You can even help to keep track of match statistics which might often be neglected. If you’re unlucky enough to be out of action for a long while, this could be useful and really help your team to get some extra insider knowledge.
So, while getting injured is the last thing that anyone wants, there are ways to use your time wisely which can benefit your team as well as keeping you involved in the action.
