IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-5-15)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
What traits do you possess that set you apart from the other athletes in your sport? Do you give much thought about the little things that could make a big difference in your performance and playing time?
Too many times young athletes get caught up in the physical portion of their sport, forgetting about the importance of a good mental approach as well. Setting yourself apart from others mentally might be the key for more success and more playing time.
So concentrate on playing smarter by limiting your turnovers (regardless of your sport), and do away with foolish mistakes and mental errors. While no one is perfect, making fewer mistakes because of your mental toughness will give your coach the confidence to count on you when the going gets tough!
