IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week – 12-4-17

by | Dec 4, 2017 | RRSN News | 0 comments

“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

Wisconsin linebacker Garrett Dooley was quoted in the Indy Star as saying, “If you have a bad play, you have to forget about it. I think this year we’ve done a really good job of forgetting about last season and moving forward, preparing every single week.”

In all sports and in most games or matches, there comes a time when you must move on from a bad play, a bad call, or an unlucky break. Are you capable of doing so?

Although there is no simple answer on how to move on, I will suggest that controlling your emotions is the key. Having a short-term memory on a bad play or tough call will help get you focused and keep your emotions intact on the next play.

Athletes who can concentrate on the play ahead instead of looking back will be the ones that are the most successful!
