IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-15-21)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-15-21)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

When teams/individuals are on a losing streak, it is easy to point fingers and and place the blame on someone else.  Blame can sometimes fall on the coach, the players, the referee/umpire, the scouting report etc.

Have you been through this situation lately?  Do you place blame?  Does your attitude change or do you remain focused on making your team and yourself better in order to break out of your doldrums?

Teams that are on a bad roll tend to stay there due to negative attitudes and their inability to rise above their challenges.  

Pointing fingers and blaming others is never the solution.  Staying focused and not listening to the outside noises can be the winning solution to getting your team turned around!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-6-21)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Student-athletes of all ages go through tough and trying times during the school year.  Challenges in the classroom and on the field of play change daily.  Sometimes it is easy to cope, and other times it becomes difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Have you ever felt alone and unsure of how to approach the issue?  Have you felt that no one could possibly understand what you are going through?

Regardless of the challenge or issue, don't be afraid to reach out to a trusted adult and talk through the situation.  

Talking through any difficulty will lift the weight off of your shoulders so you will not feel alone.   An adult who knows you and understands the situation most likely will offer a different perspective and can offer solid advice and direction.  

It is true that wisdom comes with age and although you may think no one can understand your problem, you might find that others have experienced exactly the same thing!
