3 Water Accessories to Take to the Lake...

If you live within a reasonable distance of any body of water, there are very few reasons why you should not be spending more time there. Spending time at bodies of water has proven to help people relax, de-stress and become healthier. When you head out to your favorite body of water, consider taking with you some fun water accessories like Floating Tubes. If the romance of hanging out by the water begins to wear off, the accessories can turn the occasion into an adventure. Here are three water accessories you might consider taking with you to the lake. Towable Tubes Many often head out to the lake because they own a boat, or at least, have access to a boat. Boats are great for towing. Whether it is towing friends on water skis or attempting to tow them as they ride their bare feet, there is little doubt that some are more than willing to test their limits. Towable tubes are available in a variety of sizes. From one-rider all the way to at least four-riders, a towable tube is a great boat add-on that gives you and your friends the opportunity to be adventurous and have some clean fun.

Tubing Safety Tips

There’s very little denying that the most fun activity on the water is good old fashioned towable tubing. There’s just something so satisfying about getting onto a tube that’s been tied to the back of a boat, and just letting that sucker drag you behind, skidding across the water. And while for the most part, it’s one of the safer activities you can partake in on the beach besides sunbathing (and even then, there are serious consequences for not properly applying sunscreen) there are still some safety tips you should keep in mind when getting on a towable tube for boats. While these may boil down to simple common sense, we could all use a bit more of that in our lives. 1. Read The Directions Too many people, not just boaters, see the instruction manual as a piece of fluff text in the box. It’s just hook up and go, right? Wrong. The directions are in there for a very good reason, so please take five minutes, at most, out of your day to read them to ensure you and your family’s safety when riding one of these things. Reading the instruction manual is the safest option. 2. Tow The Line The inflatable is only the first step, the next step of ensuring a safe tube ride is choosing the right tow rope for the job. Some inflatables will come with their own rope, but when one doesn’t you need to be extra thorough about finding the right one. Not all tow ropes are built to haul everything, some are too weak, others are too strong etc. Ideally, pick a rope designed for hauling inflatables across water, and be sure to look at the strength of the rope.

Practice When purchasing a leo for competition it is important to find showier leos that are made with a more solid fabric and feature embellishments, such as sequins, that perfectly accent a gymnast’s moves.

Approaching the Team Building Process...

As you’ve likely witnessed from watching team sports, there’s a lot of strategy that goes into putting in a winning effort. Coaches keep track of a large assortment of information and know how to use that information to their advantage to help their team record as many wins as possible. They also have to know how to develop a good team. Doing this will take a bit of trial and error, a considerable amount of research and, a lot of study on building winning teams. There are courses like Coach Slow’s NFL Leadership that can help you develop the skills needed, but here are a few tips to help you get started right now. Be Smart When Choosing Players You can’t have a successful team unless you choose players with the right complementary skills. Look to your current roster to see if there are any gaps in your team member’s strengths need to be filled. Study your current players’ skills and weaknesses and try to pick someone who can fill the void and complement those skill areas that need shoring up. On the flip side, coaches of winning teams will tell you, you never want to trade off a valuable team player in exchange for a more “famous” player with “attitude” that could destroy your teams dynamic, unless they can be an even greater asset to your team and are willing to put the team’s needs ahead of their own.
