IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-17-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

Have you ever had a coach make the comment to you or a teammate by saying the words “you are thinking too much”? If so, what would those words mean to you? It more than likely means that you are “overthinking” or not playing by natural instincts.

Sports are played best by those who think less and play naturally. In other words, a baseball or softball player might overthink their time at bat by waiting for a perfect pitch. Regardless of the sport, there is always a scenario where “overthinking” is a detriment, rather than a plus.

Try to relax in those stressful situations and rely on those natural instincts.  Focus on your role, your training and how your coach has instructed you. If you block out all other distractions, you will be free to play to your best ability and do what comes naturally!
