IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-20-14)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"


Have you ever heard the saying "that it is much better to be a solution to a problem, rather than being the problem itself"?

This statement holds true in the classroom, the field of play, and in everyday life.

The achieving student-athlete finds ways to solve problems.  Are you good at finding solutions and working your way through a difficult time or experience?  Are you a problem solver, or do you tend to cause more problems than you would like to admit?

The next time you are facing a tough decision or problem, think of yourself as finding the solution, and encouraging your classmates and teammates to do the same!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-6-14)

"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana"


At most sporting events, the national anthem is played before the start of the game. How do you show your respect for the flag and our great country?

Do you stand at attention? Do you put your hand on your heart? Before your sporting event, does your coach or team captain encourage the team to do something uniformly?

Last week while watching the Indianapolis Colts game, I noticed quarterback Andrew Luck, hand on heart, singing the anthem as it was being played.

Positive role models are alive and well. Remember, others will be watching you!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-29-14)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Are you a goal-oriented person?  As a student-athlete, do you set reasonable goals for yourself in the classroom and in your sport of choice?  Are you one that gives up easily, or do you fight until the end to see your goals finished?

The goal of every minor league baseball player is to make it to the big leagues.  Guilder Rodriguez played for thirteen years in the minors.  Last week he was called up to the major leagues for the very first time with the Texas Rangers.  His dreams finally came true.

In high school you only have four years to reach your goals.  Some days will be better than others.  Some subjects in school will be easier than others.  Some sports will work out for you, and some may not.

The next time you question yourself about the difficulty of achieving your goals, think about the trials and tribulations that this baseball player faced for 13 years!
