How many opportunities do you get to play sports in high school? Parents, looking back during your day, how much fun did sports bring to your high school experience? Sports can bring a tremendous amount of fun and school spirit and this can happen both as a player and or as a spectator.
First of all the high school student athletes only get to play high school sports just once. So every high school athlete needs to know that this opportunity only passes you by one time and one time only. So playing one sport or playing multiple sports in high school really doesn’t matter but playing does. Student athletes should at least go out and making the effort to play. Not everyone will make these high school teams but looking back and knowing your tried will make a difference.
For the serious student athlete, participating in high school sports is definitely a stepping-stone toward the dream of playing in college. The four years of high school goes by fast. Student athletes need to realize the college process starts your freshman year and will continue until you graduate from high school. On the field players know what needs to be done. Student athletes need to know that the “off the field” (in the classroom) efforts are as important or more so then the “on the field” work.
Be sure to take care of those grades and you will have many more options when it comes to playing in college.
You only get one opportunity to get recruited. Lets do it the best we can.
Have a great school year.
