IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-4-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
With the 2016 Masters getting ready to take place in Augusta, Georgia, players are getting prepared in different ways. Some chose to play in tournaments last week, and others decided to play practice rounds on the Augusta course.
Zach Johnson, a former Masters champion, talked about his preparation like this: “When the outcome becomes the issue, you have lost everything.”
As a student-athlete, be like Zach and don’t lose focus on the importance of practice and preparation. Don’t look at the final outcome of a game or season ahead of all the individual and team practices.
Practice and preparation will provide positive outcomes, even though all of them won’t be winning ones!
