IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-1-21)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
We have all heard of numerous, positive stories about being a good teammate. It is something most athletes concentrate on during their sports season and work on throughout their high school careers.
Can you be a good teammate even if you aren’t necessarily good friends? Throughout your life you will find yourself in situations where you are working with others who you may not consider a friend, but you are co-workers, schoolmates, or working on a project together that you need to accomplish.
It is easy to be a supportive teammate to your friends—but make sure you are equally supportive of those individuals who are on your team that you may not know as well, may not run around with, may not have as many common interests—but are equally important to the success of your team.
When you can say you are a good teammate to all, you will have mastered an important trait for success throughout your life!
