IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-18-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
We have all heard the saying that athletes are made in the off-season. How about good teammates? When are they made? How would you describe a good teammate?
Here are a few attributes of a good teammate: You care as much about your teammates as you care for yourself. You respect your teachers and coaches equally. You feel a sense of community. Winning is more important than individual fame. You set a good example both on and off the field of play.
Good teammates are made by striving to do the right thing all day long and all season long. Being a good teammate is contagious in a positive way. When every player on the team really cares about every teammate, the formula for success is in the making.
Do you have what it takes to be a good teammate?
