IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-25-15)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

How well do you read your coach? It can be difficult at times because some are outgoing, some keep to themselves, others wear their emotions on their sleeves, and some are just plain hard to read.

Don't assume that a coach who is pushing you hard doesn't believe in you; or conversely, if your coach doesn't challenge you, don't assume your performance is up to his/her standards.

Coaches will challenge you in different ways. No two coaches are alike. Don't focus on whether your coach "likes" you as a person. Instead, remember that all coaches are focused on your performance, regardless of how they get their point across!
