IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-23-20)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-23-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

E-learning and online schooling became a reality this past week. Schools are physically unavailable until at least May 1, and they could be closed even longer. How should the student-athlete approach this challenge during this unprecedented time?

Now is not the time to slack off. Now is the time to buckle down and take the classroom seriously. How many times during your sports seasons have you been too tired and exhausted to study? How many times have you put off a paper or an assignment until the last day?

Now is a good time to instill some new and serious study habits. For the time being, you no longer have the excuse of a late practice or being too tired to study. Now is the time to make sure that you make academics your top priority, and put sports on the back burner.

The coronavirus is something we had no control over. It caught us off guard and all we can do is follow the rules and guidelines set forth by our state and local governments on how to diffuse it as quickly has possible. 

Hopefully we can look back at these tough times in the not so distant future knowing that we did all the right things to make all those around us proud of how we handled a very tough situation, while not letting our academics fall by the wayside!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-6-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

This past week the IHSAA wisely cancelled spring sports for the 2020 season.

No doubt if you are a spring athlete you are feeling disappointment and disbelief. These are rare, rare times and the coronavirus has affected everybody in one way or the other.

If you are a senior athlete your high school sports career may be over, but the memories and friendships will last a lifetime. If you are an underclassman it hopefully won't be long until team gatherings and training become reality again. 

Student-athletes still need physical activity to keep their bodies and minds sharp. It's important that you find a way to stay active and in good physical condition while social distancing from your friends. Speak with your coaches and trainers on what they suggest and continue to pay close attention to your school work!
