IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-29-17)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"
The end of the school year is here. It's hard to believe how fast it goes by. Each year at this time I talk about the importance of summer work-outs.
Believe it or not, summer break is a time for hard work and also a time for rest and relaxation. I've heard it for years, and have been expressing it forever, but athletes are made during the summer (off-season).
While it's very important that you take time away from your sport, it's also very important that you are committed and work hard on the fundamentals that will make you a better athlete next school year. Summer time allows you the flexibility to do so.
Whether or not you have a summer job, or take a class during summer school, there is no excuse not to re-dedicate yourself to the sports you play. Just remember, those who work the hardest this summer will most likely improve the most!
