IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-18-21)
"Promoting Education-Based Athletics in Indiana"
There is honor in sports. While we depend on officials most of the time, there are sports where you, the athlete, make the call.
How honorable are you when it comes to making the call? In cross country or track do you stay on course or in your lanes? In tennis are you making the correct line calls? In golf do you bend the rules to your advantage or go by the rule book?
In sports, as in life, there will be times when you have to make a rules decision. Your character and integrity are on the line. How will you react?
If you are participating in individual sports that require you to make the call, always be honest with yourself and your opponents. Winning by taking advantage of the rules has no place in high school sports. Sports is just a game. Your character and integrity are more important than any questionable call!
