Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-30-2020)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
This past week in the Indy Star, an area basketball coach described one of his athletes as a tireless worker and said how much she has improved over the past year (her rebound average last year was 3.3 and this year is averaging 15 per game).
The coach went as far as to say that if you look up “competitive athlete” and “coachable athlete” in a dictionary, you would see a picture of this player. He then stated he never questions her effort and while she may make mistakes, it won’t be due to lack of effort.
How do you rate with your coaches? Are you showing improvement? Do you always give your maximum effort in practices as well as in games? How would your coach describe your effort in a dictionary?
If you want to be described as a “tireless worker” and/or “competitive athlete”, show up to your practice/game with that mindset throughout.
If you give the effort that makes you proud, I am sure it will make your coach proud as well!
