IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-26-14) "Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana." One of major league baseball's bright young stars is Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels. He offered the following advice without knowing so with a recent article written in Sports Illustrated by Tom Verducci. "The biggest thing at the plate is if I tell myself to hit a home run, I get out 100% of the time. All my home runs come from just telling myself, base hit up the middle." Athletes that try to do too much can get themselves in trouble. Regardless of your sport, keep this in mind as you train this summer. Don't swing for the fences. Improve your skills a day at a time!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-19-14) "Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana." All athletes experience game time pressure throughout the season, but there is another type of pressure that is much more difficult to cope with, and that is peer pressure. Every school year we hear or read about the tragedies that can take place with drugs and alcohol. I'm sure you know of someone in your circles who has chosen to make that wrong decision. Don't let others determine what is right and wrong for you. Don't fall victim to peer pressure, and more importantly, don't jeopardize your future by making a foolish mistake today!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-12-14) "Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana." The NFL draft took place this last weekend. One player had some insight from a family member. Derek Carr, younger brother of former number one pick David Carr, received the following advice from his older brother for this upcoming season. David said, and I'm paraphrasing, that people will praise you a lot, and people will critique you a lot, but pay attention to neither. Regardless of your sport, pay attention to those things that will make you a better player, a better teammate, and a better person on and off the field. It doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-5-14) "Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana." Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is back preparing for the upcoming NFL season, but this comes on the heels of taking six weeks off. Granted, Luck is a one sport participant, and a pro at that, but it's very important for all athletes to get away from their main sport and rest the mind and body. How much time do you take off when a season is completed? Does it help refresh you? When you return are you more anxious to play? The time away will vary from athlete to athlete, but there's no doubt that it must be done. Your mind, body, and coach will tell you when it's time to return!
