IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-24-21)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-24-21)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Professional golfer Max Homa describes himself as a happy person.  During the 2016/17 season he only made two cuts on the PGA tour.  That is a tough season, but he kept practicing and focusing on the things that could improve his game.  

He says there is not one single positive that comes from getting mad after a bad golf shot.  He says you must learn from your mistakes and avoid making the same mistake over and over.

Homa says what he does is focus on all the things he has in his life that he is thankful for, so that when he hits a bad shot, he thinks about all that is right in his life-not what is wrong.

Next time you are having a bad day or sub-par game, be thankful for all the things that you have to be thankful for in your life-your health, family, friends-just the fact that you can participate in high school sports!

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!
