IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-4-21)
"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"
How good are you at controlling your emotions during practices and games? Can you take constructive criticism from your coaches? How do you react if a coach calls you out?
A few weeks ago during a college football game a coach removed a player from a game and the player became irate on the sidelines. He was eventually sent to the locker room. Instead of composing himself, he grabbed his phone and started tweeting negative comments about his coach and school. Needless to say, he was dismissed from the team the following week.
All players go through tough and challenging times. It might be in practice or it could be during a game. Regardless, don't act out in a way that puts you in jeopardy with your school or coach.
You will not always agree with a decision a coach might make, but don't multiply your displeasure by displaying a bad attitude and saying things you can never take back!
