IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-17-14)
“Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana.”
Injuries have always been a part of the game. Today, with more awareness about the seriousness of concussions, athletes are even more prone to sit out of games and practices in order to fully recover.
However, while an injury might hamper one individual, it could open a door for another. Have you ever been given an opportunity to get playing time because of an injury to a teammate?
The next time you find yourself on the bench and not playing, realize that your chance could come at any time.
While most athletes hope they play because of their ability and not an injury to a teammate, you must be able to put that aside and be ready to perform. Are you up for that challenge?
