IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-13-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

One of the many challenges facing coaches today is how to deal with the egos of the student-athlete.  In individual sports, most coaches would agree that having an athlete with a big ego might be beneficial, but in team sports that big ego could prove detrimental.

Are you playing a team sport? If so, holding your ego in check is essential. We have all heard the saying there is no "I" in team. Egos must be left in the locker room.  While you need individual skills to play team sports, the most important impact you can have is blending your skills with those of the team.

That is the reason coaches spend so much time on team bonding and building a team culture. Getting everyone to buy in and be on the same page can be the difference between a so-so season and a very successful one.

Remember, to earn playing time and the trust of your coach, the most important thing you can do is satisfy your coaching staff!
