IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-25-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
How do you view your participation in sports and extra-curricular activities? Is it a right or is it a privilege?
Anytime you are part of a school team, your participation is a privilege you have earned. There are rules and guidelines that you must follow or what you have earned can be taken away. There are consequences for bad actions and bad decisions.
In light of two high school girls basketball seasons being cancelled (for girls and fans losing their composure and fighting during the contest), let it be a lesson to all. Sports participation is a privilege and this privilege can be and should be taken away in extreme cases where teams and fans lose focus on the number one priority of any high school sporting event, sportsmanship!
