IHSAA Student Athlete Tip of the Week (1-4-21)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
Coaches get on players and instruct athletes whom they believe have the most potential. Do you ever feel like your coach is hard on you? Does your coach offer you good instruction and advice? If you are in sports, you are never too old for instruction.
I watched a special on 6-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady on the NFL Network. He stated that there was nothing about him or his game that was infallible. He said he is a player like everyone else on his team, and when he hears what he is doing wrong or what he needs to do better from his coaches, it motivates him.
Do you listen to your coaches or get mad when they offer criticism or advice? Chances are your coach sees potential in your abilities and is trying to help you improve. Pay attention and accept what they are telling you. Find a way to use it to motivate you to be better and more improved.
If it works for Tom Brady, maybe it will work for you!
