IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-24-16)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Today's student-athlete knows the importance of size, speed and strength. However, the ability to develop the fundamentals and skills of your sport is just as important.

Someone once said, "if you are good enough, you are big enough."

What truly separates athletes at the high school level is skill development, work ethic, and knowledge of your sport.  If you are fundamentally sound, work hard every day in practice, and pay attention to what your coach expects of you, then you can overcome bigger, faster or even stronger competitors.

Time takes care of physical development.  In the meantime, work on your skills to assure you don't fall behind!
