IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-17-21)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week ( 5-17-21)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

As the school year draws to a close, it is no time to let up on your academics and final exams.  Treat these last few weeks as the most important weeks of the school year.

Academic excellence will give you more opportunities to pick the college of your choice, instead of having to settle for a school less desirable.  Final grades really count, as it affects your class rank and grade point average regardless of your year in school. 

These last few weeks of the school year are like the last period of a game, the final inning of a baseball/softball game or the finish line in a track or cross country meet.  You might have to make some sacrifices to win, but it will be worth the effort. 

Keep your focus on academics like the game is on the line.  In reality, it is!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-31-21)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Every year I encourage student-athletes to work their hardest in the summer and off-season.  That is when you can truly work on fundamentals and skills that will make you better for the next school year.  

The following quote sums up what the summer should be about if you are striving for growth and improvement (Dale Carnegie).  "Inaction breeds doubt and fear.  Action breeds confidence and courage.  If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it.  Go out and get busy."

Now is the time to make the commitment and plan of action.  Why not chart your progress?  Don't just talk about getting better, put in the time and effort to make this summer special. 

Athletes are made in the summer!
