Tip of the Week

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Are you an athlete that works hard but still comes up short when it comes to having all the skills necessary to be an elite player? If so, you are not alone. In fact, I would say most high school athletes mature later than they desire.

If that is the case, what can you do to give yourself an advantage over others with the same issue? Besides the obvious of extra workouts and time spent in the weight room, what else could work to your advantage?

The mental part of your sport is the one thing that can set you apart from others. What if you could start each game or individual sport with a lead? Now I have you thinking, right?

A coach was recently quoted as saying this exact thing about a player who was lightly recruited because of his athleticism. He stated his player's intelligence means he "always starts the race with a lead." He ended up with a Division I scholarship.

Don't underestimate the importance of knowing the inside and out of your particular sport. That intellect could help you gain a bigger advantage than you ever imagined!
