IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-25-19)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Too many times I have seen student-athletes hurt their grades or chances of playing time by not doing the "little things" it takes to help them turn the corner. One of those things is being a good listener.

Are you a good listener? Do you make eye contact with your teachers and coaches when they are speaking to you or others? Do you follow through with the detail that's expected and the instructions given to you?

Being a good listener is something that you control. Paying attention to what is being said and then following through with the execution expected may put you a step ahead of your competition. 

Next time you head to the classroom or practice make an extra effort on being a good listener. You will be surprised at what a positive influence it will have on your outlook and performance!

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!
