If you want to sit at the cool table, do it. (Later crossed out and Ned says to forget this tip)
Sit next to new people.
Avoid sitting by the window because the sun will fry you.
Avoid sitting next to bullies.
When you're sitting with your friends, you're sitting at the cool table.
Signing up first doesn't help your chances.
Get the right equipment.
Visualize like the pros.
Make sure the coach notices you.
Don't give up, just practice, get better, possibly grow taller and make it better next time.
