IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-24-18)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

While watching NFL football this last week, it brought to mind a quote I saw in USA Today a few years back.

Gary Kubiak, a former NFL head, coach, speaking about those players that report for the first day of practice and whether they are prepared or not.

"Smart players, they know what to expect the first day of practice....You can see the difference in their preparation."

High school athletes, and especially the ninth and tenth graders, could have tryouts up to three times a year. Getting physically and mentally ready for those tryouts can be challenging. Get ready for the grind and keep your mind focused on your goal, that of making the team. You can worry about positions and playing time after that final cut!
