Game-day & team bonding traditions: Every competition before we leave our room, we always sit in a circle, close our eyes, turn off the lights, hold hands, play the music and visualize our most perfect performance.  It gets everyone focused and ready to go.  Also, right before we take the floor, we take a few big deep breaths together as a team for a last minute focus.
