IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-20-17)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

What's your mental state like before a big game or an important test? Are you unsure or afraid to fail? Are you confident? Do you feel prepared? Are you afraid of the potential result?

Most athletes, at every level, would tell you that they are a little nervous before that big game.  If you don't have those butterflies in your belly, I would be very surprised.

But why are you nervous may determine the end result. If you aren't prepared, don't anticipate positive results. 

But if you are nervous because of the anticipation of the game and you are prepared, you will find yourself confident and ready for the challenge ahead!
