IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-3-13)
“Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana.”
The start of a new school year is always full of challenges for student-athletes. But one challenge remains constant, and that is how to balance academics and sports.
Your first responsibility always starts in the classroom. Be sure to take care of your academic obligations. Establish good study habits, use your time wisely, and don’t fall behind on your assignments.
If you are playing a fall sport, take the same approach toward your coach and teammates. Be attentive, work hard and prepare every day so you are ready to perform when you get your chance to participate.
Getting off to a good start in the classroom should make you feel good about yourself and help provide you with the proper motivation to be a positive contributor to your school for the entire year.
