"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

One of the most overlooked aspects of success in any sport, but yet one of the most important, is the mental component and how it plays a key role in determining the final outcome of any given game. 

Being mentally sharp and staying focused on your task should never be taken for granted. The difference between losing and winning comes down to which opponent  makes fewer mental mistakes.

Whether it's a penalty in football, a foolish foul in basketball, or a base running mistake in baseball or softball, one mistake can be the difference maker.

Are you doing everything you can to be mentally prepared?  Do you get enough sleep, eat properly, and know the game plan?  Do you communicate with your coaches on what they deem important for you and the team? No team or individual will ever play the perfect game, but trying to do so will give you a bigger advantage!
