IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-25-19)

“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”



Too many times I have seen student-athletes hurt their grades or chances of playing time by not doing the “little things” it takes to help them turn the corner.  One of those things is being a good listener.

Are you a good listener?  Do you make eye contact with your teachers and coaches when they are speaking to you or others?  Do you follow through with the detail that’s expected and the instructions given to you?

Being a good listener is something that you control.  Paying attention to what is being said and then following through with the execution expected may put you a step ahead of your competition.

Next time you head to the classroom or practice make an extra effort on being a good listener.  You will be surprised at what a positive influence it will have on your outlook and performance!
