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

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

How would you describe your level of commitment to your team or sport?  Would your coaches describe you as committed?  Today there are many other activities and responsibilities that a student-athlete may have that may impact your answer.

What can you control as a student-athlete?  The most obvious way is giving 100% during games/matches.  True commitment to excellence in your sport starts much earlier.  

Do you give it your all during practice?  Do you make a habit of arriving on time to every practice ready to perform?  Have you made it a priority to get your rest when needed, likely causing you to miss out on some social activities?  Are you getting the proper amount of sleep? Have you focused on your school work to maintain your grade point average?

Success in life and athletics is the result of the many, many choices each person makes along the way. Be aware of the choices you are making that impact your goals and your team's goals. By doing so you will give yourself and your team the best chance of succeeding!

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!
