IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-13-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

One of the many challenges facing coaches today is how to deal with the egos of the student-athlete.  In individual sports, most coaches would agree that having an athlete with a big ego might be beneficial, but in team sports that big ego could prove detrimental.

Are you playing a team sport? If so, holding your ego in check is essential. We have all heard the saying there is no "I" in team. Egos must be left in the locker room.  While you need individual skills to play team sports, the most important impact you can have is blending your skills with those of the team.

That is the reason coaches spend so much time on team bonding and building a team culture. Getting everyone to buy in and be on the same page can be the difference between a so-so season and a very successful one.

Remember, to earn playing time and the trust of your coach, the most important thing you can do is satisfy your coaching staff!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-6-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Winter break is over and the new year is here. Did you make any New Year resolutions?  How will you achieve them?  You may have heard the saying that "hope is not a strategy."

To reach your goals you must have a plan-- hope alone will not get you there. 

You have had a break in the classroom but now it is time to come back to school reenergized and focused. Start today. Don't take any days off.

You can make 2020 your best year academically and athletically.   Execute your plan and don't become discouraged along the way. Your dreams are possible!
