IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Does your coach talk with you about the use of social media? Are there specific rules and guidelines initiated by your athletic department? Do you follow the guidelines and expectations? A tweet with “insensitive language” caused a Massachusetts cheerleader to be banned from her squad for the rest of the season. This should be a reminder to all student-athletes to think twice before posting any questionable material on social media. What may not seem foolish or insensitive to you could offend someone else. Don’t deter your academic and athletic quests by the push of a button!
