 IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-4-19)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Hall of Fame baseball player Brooks Robinson was known for his work ethic and practice habits. He was always worried about his starting position and keeping his name in the lineup.

He was once quoted saying “If you’re not practicing, somebody else is, somewhere, and he’ll be ready to take your job.” Practicing on your own and spending time on the fundamentals is an individual commitment that only you can control. Doing so when coaches or parents aren’t supervising is a lost art.

Somebody somewhere is always working to get better. It might as well be you!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-25-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

The 2020 school year is officially over for most. What a change we have seen over the past two and a half months. While it was different and unforeseen, we all are getting through it and it's time to look forward to summer and the challenges still facing us in the months ahead.

Will things be different next school year? You bet. What will it look like? Who knows for sure. Should you be worried? No, because people are resilient and adapt to change. How can you help? Be positive and confident that those in charge will make the right decisions.

While we don't know what school and sports will look like this summer and fall, we do know that it's not going to be the same as in the past.

As a student-athlete, now is the time to start training for the challenges ahead. Coaching supervision may not always be available. Working out on your own or in small groups will become the norm. You are going to be faced with more responsibility and accountability. 

Make this summer count!
