IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3-6-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
One of the great success stories this year is about a Division III basketball team, Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Their 27-0 record is only part of the story. Their unconventional coach, Eric Bridgeland, is a realist who relates to his players in a very unique way. The following quote from USA Today sums up his approach:
“If you could wish your team one thing, I would wish they are having a blast and that they don’t feel pressure. So that’s what we are doing. In our team visualization before every game, we talk about being creative and enthusiastic in handling these awesome situations we get into.”
Do you visualize success before your game? This may be a key to Whitman’s success and yours!
