IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-23-22)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

When you make a commitment or promise to do something, is it your goal to follow through with the result?  

NBA star Steph Curry is one of the league's all-time greats.  He is known as the greatest 3-point shooter in the history of the game.

However, his mom will remember him for something else, which is much more meaningful to her.  When Curry turned pro after his junior year in college, he promised his mom he would return to Davidson and earn his degree.

Well, Curry did just that.  It didn't happen until 13 years later, but Curry said it was his promise to his mom that inspired him to complete his college education.  

While Curry has had so many success stories, this might be his biggest accomplishment.  It's all because of a promise he kept to his mother!

Tip of the Week

IHSAA Tip of the Week (5-31-22)

"Promoting Education-Based Athletics in Indiana"

As you can tell by now, I am big on quotes by athletes and coaches and what makes them better and more competitive. 

However, it was a comment by a golf TV analyst that caught my attention this past weekend.  "Almost all athletes have the will to win, but the great ones have the will to prepare to win."

Do you have the will to make the effort for growth and improvement which will prepare you to win?  Preparation is sometimes overlooked and underrated.  Hopefully not with you!

Have a great summer!
