IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-3-20)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-3-2020)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

One of the best feelings any athlete can experience is being "in the zone".  You know, you can't miss a shot, your times are improving, the baseball looks like a grapefruit and is easy to hit, and everything you do seems to be better than normal.

However, when the opposite happens and nothing seems to go right, the dreaded word "slump" comes to mind. A slump could be described as not performing up to your capabilities or expectations. All athletes experience a slump from time to time, regardless of age or sport.

How do you get out of a slump? No one has that answer, but my suggestion is to face up to it and continue to stay mentally and physically tough. Know that it doesn't last forever and one key play or special moment can pull you out of it.

Slumps are going to happen, they are a part of any sport that you will ever play. However, the best way to rid yourself of them is to put it in the rear view mirror and move on to the next play!

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!
