IHSAA Tip of the Week (5/15/23)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Are you a coachable student-athlete?  Can you accept instruction?  Are you a good listener?  Do you look your teachers and coaches in the eye when they are speaking? 

It is easy to get down on yourself when someone is constantly on you.  However, you must remember that coaches tend to be hard on those they expect the most out of.  

Being able to accept coaching and criticism is a big part of any sport.  Keep in mind that coaches coach, so don't take it personally when you are criticized or yelled at.

The next time your coach jumps on you, try to take it as a compliment.  Keeping the right frame of mind and attitude during those trying moments will serve you well!
