IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week for 9-13-22

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Would you consider yourself a successful athlete?  Are you where you want to be and satisfied with your current performance?  Hopefully, you are always striving to improve.

One of the pitfalls that all athletes (but especially young ones) need to avoid is becoming complacent with their progress and achievements.  In other words, do not become satisfied with your current performance, even if you are very successful and feel like you are where you want to be.

If and when you reach a level of feeling totally satisfied with a good game or performance, know that in athletics, you must continue to perform on a daily basis and fight to keep your position.    

Legendary basketball coach Don Meyer said, "Complacency is the forerunner of mediocrity.  You can never work too hard on attitudes, effort and technique."
