IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-15-21)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
Do you have trouble putting a bad game or sub par performance behind you? It’s easy to move on after good games because you are usually in a better frame of mind.
So how can you bury the negative thoughts when you know you could have played better? How can you move on to the next game?
You cannot dwell on mistakes you have made and expect to improve.
Remember-games are just an extension of your practices and preparation. You will find that over time the carry over from practice to games will improve and start to show as the season goes on.
While you may have played a game you were not pleased with, you can always find something that you did well. Each game is a building block.
Athletes who focus on the rear view mirror instead of looking ahead to their next game may never reach their potential!
