IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-18-19)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"
One of the big changes in sports over the past twenty years is how today's athlete celebrates a big play or accomplishment during the game or an event.
Back in my day, we would call that showboating. But today it is considered part of the game, as long as you aren't trying to show someone up or taunt.
My preference would be less celebrating and more acting like you have been there before. However, soccer great Mia Hamm probably has a better analysis. She has said, and I quote, "Celebrate what you've accomplished, but also raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed."
How you react is up to you, but common sense tells us to make sure your celebration doesn't overshadow your good play!
