IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-7-2023)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11/7/23)
"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"


Effort and performance do not always go hand in hand.  You may put forth a great effort in the classroom or on the field/court of play, but the result may not be the grade you wanted or a win for you or your team.

So what do you do?  It can be discouraging and even frustrating, but I want to assure you that consistent, long-term effort will pay off.

Whether it is studying or practicing your sport, you can't "cram" in a short period of time everything you will need to be successful.  You must have the discipline to daily and weekly put in the time and effort to achieve success.

Great athletes never settle--they continually strive to improve in all aspects of their sport.  They make sacrifices, put in the time, and hate losing more than they love winning.

Your outcomes will definitely improve if you focus your effort every day in practice (and outside of practice).  Improvement will come and so will success!
