IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-18-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
All teachers and coaches use the expression “no excuses” from time to time. Have you made excuses for not playing well or making a poor grade in the classroom? It’s easy to place blame on others to cover-up your own deficiencies.
However, making excuses is rarely justified. Not only that, teachers and coaches don’t like hearing about it.
Other than sickness or a justified injury, don’t use a weak excuse if you under-perform. Instead, take accountability and move on to your next challenge. By doing so, you will gain the respect and confidence of all those around you!
