IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-7-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
This past week the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in over 100 years. As told by their front office personnel, it took thousands of small sacrifices by players and people throughout the organization to finally bring an end to the longest dry spell in baseball history.
Good things in sports don’t happen by accident. Take your school team as an example. Coaches prepare all year long for a season that might last three months. Athletes train the year around and hope the improvement shows when their season begins. Every team/individual aims to win its last game of the year because it would mean a state championship.
But nothing great happens without everyone being on the same page. What are the big and small sacrifices that it takes to give your team a championship shot?
