Hi guys,

I have many questions to ask. I play in an area where there is only one club. In that club there are some good, but not great players. I have gotten to the point where I am at the top level of the club. I am 14 years old and am improving fairly rapidly. I feel that in six months from now I will be beating everyone somewhat easily because I beat most people now competitively. However, I have seen my rate of improvement slow down in the past few months not because of lack of practice but because I am not being challenged very much. Do you think that I will get much better even if I am better than all of the players? Also, what should I do to get better in other ways? Is there a limit to how good I can be if I started at 14 in your opinion, assuming I continue to practice hard and often? I want to be great and I do not want to have my talent limited location get in the way. Thank you.

Hi Anthony,

Progress isn’t a straight line.  There will always be slower and faster periods.  The important thing is to train constantly.

It would be good to try and find some better players to train with as well.  It may mean having to travel to other areas to find these players.  You could also use multi ball and train players to feed you multi ball.

Starting at 14 means you still have a lot of improving left in you.  Keep working hard and see where you can get to.
