IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-18-19)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

In the up and down world of athletics, it's not uncommon to have a bad day from time to time. Your moods can be high during the good times, and low during the bad. How do you handle the ups and downs?

It's easy to do and say all of the right things when everything is going well. How about the bad times?  How about on the court or playing field after a tough loss, or lack of playing time, or an unexpected injury? What do your actions say about you?

This past week an NFL player was suspended for the year because he lost his self control and assaulted an opponent on the field of play. Was he having a bad day? You bet, but there is never an acceptable excuse to take your frustrations out on an opponent, teammate, coach, teacher, or administrator.

Keeping your cool and helping your teammates do the same is a responsibility of every student-athlete during every practice and game. Be that student-athlete that displays self control at all times and not just when things are going well!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-25-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

The 2020 school year is officially over for most. What a change we have seen over the past two and a half months. While it was different and unforeseen, we all are getting through it and it's time to look forward to summer and the challenges still facing us in the months ahead.

Will things be different next school year? You bet. What will it look like? Who knows for sure. Should you be worried? No, because people are resilient and adapt to change. How can you help? Be positive and confident that those in charge will make the right decisions.

While we don't know what school and sports will look like this summer and fall, we do know that it's not going to be the same as in the past.

As a student-athlete, now is the time to start training for the challenges ahead. Coaching supervision may not always be available. Working out on your own or in small groups will become the norm. You are going to be faced with more responsibility and accountability. 

Make this summer count!
