IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-29-21)

Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana

Does your coach yell and scream at times?  Or Is he/she calm and collected?  Either type of coach can be intimidating from time to time.  Sometimes that message can be rough to hear if the team is not performing well. This is true in all sports and of all ages.

Over your sports career you will likely have a multitude of coaching styles to deal with.  It is important to understand and be aware of the message your coach is sending, and not focus on the way it is delivered, even when it feels like a personal attack. 

Your coach may be trying to teach, motivate, inspire or challenge you and the delivery may be different in each case.  Focus on the message first and foremost, that way you can deliver positive results and what is expected of you!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-12-21)

“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”

Most parents have good intentions when they offer advice and instruction to their children during any athletic season.  It is only natural for your parents to put you first and offer their thoughts.

So as an athlete, how do you make the separation from your parent’s input to your coach’s expectation of you?

In team sports, the coaches will always put the team first, so it is up to you as a team member to put what your coach wants and deems important ahead of anything else. 

Don’t downplay the advice from your parents, especially when it comes to attitude and effort, but take your coaches instruction to heart and focus on winning as a team!
