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!
