Proverbs of Squash : 21 Volley Nick Rollers by david jarvis 2022.

Proverbs of Squash : 21 Volley Nick Rollers, by david jarvis 2022.

A champions shot selection is like streams of water off their racket.

They flow away from the opponent.

All of an athletes’ ways seem right to them,

But the Head Coach predicts the outcomes.

To hit with correct weight and just in

Is more pleasing to the Team than show boating.

Haughty eyes and an arrogant way

the lamp that guides those is dim.

The training schedule of the diligent leads towards success,

and perpetual match practice leads towards stagnation.

Gaining sponsors with a lying tongue

Is like overhitting the drive.

The violence of the desperate leads towards harm,

For they think incorrectly they are justified.

The way of a cheating athlete is ineptitude,

but the activity of a natural athlete is consistently lawful.

Better to hit the ball to a vacant corner

than back to the opponent.

The deceptive shot makes the opponent look bad;

It sends them the wrong way.

When a dissenter is conduct warned, the inexperienced become wiser,

and when a wise athlete receives insight, they gain knowledge.

The Righteous One observes the training of the uneducated;

They notice the lack of improvement.

Whoever refuses to listen to the crying of their athlete

Will themselves not be heard nor answered.

A secret gift builds confidence and wonder,

and a hidden bribe breaches Our sports rules.

It is joy for an athlete to train optimally,

but the incompetent merely want to play.

The athlete who strays from the pathway

Will become a club player.

The athlete whom loves having a good time will come to poverty;

The one who loves alcohol and drugs will not sustain improvements.

The lesser participant is a ransom for the professional athlete,

and the cheater will be replaced with a natural athlete.

Better to train alone

Than stagnating with endless match play.

Precious equipment and creams are found in the bag of the athlete,

but the stupid will squander what they have.

Whoever pursues every shot diligently

Will apply pressure and create opportunities.

A wise athlete analyses the opposition

and turns weaknesses into strengths and strength into weakness.

The athlete refraining from comments and argument

keeps themselves in the zone of flow.

An arrogant bragger is known by both their speech and movement.

What the lazy uneducated athlete craves is never achieved

for they do not know what to do.

All day long some greedily desire to take,

but the quiet achiever gives, holding nothing back.

The gifts of the cheaters are detestable,

how much more when they dissemble during interview.

A lying athlete will fade,

but the one who truthfully trains meets with success.

The cheater puts on a bold faced attitude,

But it is the natural athlete whose course is sure.

There is no wisdom, nor discernment, nor counsel in opposition to the Officials.

The athlete is prepared for the day of competition,

and they compete how they trained.

Proverbs of Squash : 20 lob shots dying, by david jarvis 2022.

Proverbs of Squash : 20 lob shots dying, by david jarvis 2022.

A little wine is fine, but too much

will lead the fools astray today.

The terror of the elite athlete is like the roaring of a

crowd;

whoever provokes the mob risks their own

life.

It is honourable for an athlete to respect the

referee,

but fools argue unneccessarily about lets.

The lazy athlete does not train when cold,

so they never become warmed up for the match.

The thoughts of an athlete’s heart are like deep

divers,

and the discerning coach draws them out.

Many team mates proclaim their loyalty,

but who can find a faithful training partner?

The righteous athlete walks through skills at first,

happy about slow and incremental gains.

When the champion stands on the podium,

they feel the glow of success yet plan for improvement.

Who can say : “I have trained my weaknesses;

I improve each day”?

Dishonest sponsors and dissembling administrators

both are detestable to quality coaches and athletes.

Even a junior is known by their actions,

whether their behaviour is pure and right.

Hear the score and see the ball

Squash is made of both of those.

Sleep and recover or you will become overtrained.

Open yourself to optimality, and you will taper appropriately.

“That’s a double, that’s a double!” says some opponents;

They seek to influence the officials in desperation.

There is graphite, also much polymer,

but the lips of knowledge are even more

precious.

Take an athlete’s equipment if they cheat

for gains;

Seize their winnings and make them foreign to our sport.

Victories gained by cheating taste like ashes and gravel.

By consultation, training schedules will succeed,

and by skillful direction wage your campaign.

The imprudent reveal confidences about their team mates;

Do not associate with players who love to gossip.

Whoever curses their coach or captain,

their abilities will decline in times of hardship.

Inheriting a squash centre when needy

will not be a blessing in the end.

Do not say: “I will win!”

Hope that you will play well, and that will save you.

Dishonest gains are detestable to Squash,

And deceptive shots are true to the player, not the opponent.

An athlete’s footsteps are directed by Pathways;

How can a junior understand their own way?

It is a snare for an athlete to cry out rashly,

“Stroke!”

And realise the referee makes the decision otherwise.

A wise coach sifts out the wicked

And drives the evil out of them.

The cardiovascular system is the heart beating of an athlete,

It powers everything they train for.

Loyal love and faithfulness safeguard the captain;

by loyal love they sustain their leadership.

The glory of juniors is their speed, strength and suppleness,

And the splendor of veterans is their shot selection and skills.

Bloody wounds need first aid,

and losses cleanses one’s innermost being.
