IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-11-21)
"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"
How do you stay engaged with your team if you miss a few weeks of play with an injury? Do you still attend practices? Are you encouraging and helping the player who is taking your place? Are you following the recommendations of your trainer and/or doctor?
Injuries are a part of any sports participation. While it is tough to sit and watch when you are used to playing, you can still contribute to your team at practices and games--guiding younger players, motivating teammates and cheering on the sidelines.
We have all watched or attended events where a key player is in street clothes rather than being in uniform. Even though they are not participating, their spirit on the sidelines can become contagious to their team and give them the mental edge to carry on to victory!
