Becoming a professional racquetball player takes a substantial investment of time and energy. To pursue this dream, a well-honed strategy involving physical training, practice, coaching and financing must be developed.
The commitment to consistent, strenuous, physical training is mandatory. Being in top condition is a prerequisite to playing this sport professionally. There must be a determination to consistently press forward towards peak conditioning.
In addition to getting in shape, you will need time on the court to develop, practice and improve your racquetball skills. Moreover, you will need a coach to train, teach and push you in the right direction.
Another consideration is the ability to earn a living while pursuing your professional career. Becoming a coach to someone who could benefit from the skills you have already acquired, may be a means of accomplishing this. Then, as you continue to advance towards becoming a professional athlete, companies may be willing to sponsor you to sell their brand. This would be another way to earn income while pursuing your professional career.
