Broken wrist questions

I broke my wrist (ulna and radius) 8 days ago, the doctor said the radius break was clean, but my ulna break was a little bit uneven. They gave me a full arm cast, and made an appointment with an orthopedic doctor in two weeks. There are two questions.

I play on a competitive soccer team, and I have a huge tournament beginning on august 8th, would I be able to have my cast removed and given a removable arm brace, etc for I can play?

What can I do with my cast on and then off to increase strength, and increase healing speed?
