“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

What do the words “body language” mean to you? Do you get excited easily or are you even-tempered while playing your sport? How do you manage your emotions, in good situations and bad?

Your coach and the average fan will form an opinion of you by your actions during tense and trying moments. How do you react on a negative play? Do you shrug your shoulders and put the blame on others? What’s your reaction when you make a good play? How do you react when your coach takes you out of the game for making a mistake?

Never under estimate the importance of keeping your emotions in check and not letting others know how you are feeling inside. Those with good “body language” will always appear to be confident and in control of any situation!
