IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-26-21)

“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”

Former Kentucky basketball player Terrence Clarke died following a car crash this past week.  He was only 19 years old with the dream of making it in the NBA.   He ran a red light at a high rate of speed and clipped a car in the intersection leading to his tragic death. 

In the classroom and on field of play, you often get second chances.  But not in an automobile.  As a driver, you must concentrate 100% on the task at hand.  As a passenger you also have the responsibility of speaking out if the driver is not doing his/her job. 

Don’t make a choice or decision you can’t take back!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-3-21)
    

“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
 

When is the right time to acknowledge the people who have had a positive influence on you and your high school sports experience? Who might that be?  

A grade school teacher? Your parents? A junior high coach? A youth coach? One of your high school teachers or counselors?

It’s never too early or too late to say ‘thank you’. Reach out to those who have helped you and let them know how your relationship with them encouraged you and gave you the confidence to pursue your academic and athletic dreams.

Your success as a student-athlete is the result of more than just your hard work. Likely others around you have sacrificed time and money for you to be where you are.

So the right time is now. Don’t hesitate to approach those who have been a positive influence and thank them for what they have done for you!
