IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-12-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Are you playing high school sports for the pure pleasure of your sport, or are you using your high school experience as a stepping stone to college sports?
Getting to the college level can be very challenging. Take football for example. There are 774 college football teams (in all divisions). Most states have anywhere from 200-450 high schools that have a football program. Those numbers show the challenges facing today’s high school athletes who want to move on and play at the college level.
This ratio remains about the same, regardless of your sport. The odds are stacked against you. That’s why you should take the time and make the effort to enjoy high school sports. Your sporting days could come to an end at any time!
