Does your team have any traditions, or do any pre-comp rituals? If so what are they?
Good point; I know people the touch down or bobble and the blame it on a supersitition ( they wore a differnt pair of socks or ate something new for breakfeast. I have gone without my " traditions" before and I dont even relize it and compete fine.We have always aimed to discourage rituals and superstitions, as if they don't get a chance to happen it can throw the athlete off their guard simply because they are worried they didn't do the ritual, nothing to do with any actual bad luck. These days however i like to lean down and touch the comp surface, not for any sort of additional luck, just because if i don't do it deliberately i will never have touched the floor with any part of my body, as i'm always in the chair, and it's nice to have done so...
