We are curious to see what other coaches pre-competition tradition is…do you feel it brings you luck? Is it just for fun?
Before every competition, we would have a stuffed bear (named Midge) that we would have every athlete hold and think of a good thought or kiss the bear. I am unsure if it was actually lucky, but it always seemed to put the team at ease. Midge would go out to the floor and sit at center. It also helped the team focus on center better.
