High Tech High Athletics
I hope this newsletter finds you well, safe and healthy! I know this isn’t the spring break you wanted but hopefully, you took advantage of the downtime and were able to create deeper relationships with your families and friends.
The future of the school year is uncertain, including for HTH Athletics. We are not sure if we will even finish spring sports. We are here for you! We will continue to connect and continue to work together to build our community (online) and build our skills around the game (online). This is an incredible time to grow individually and deepen relationships from afar. The coaches and I are working together to provide weekly routines and weekly team meetings. We will be sending resources for each of you to stay fit, stay on top of your skills and stay connected as a team. We are in this together! Take this time to allow your actions to speak louder than your words. Identify what allows you to be the best version of yourself. During this time you have the power to become your best self and create your own story. The intention and energy that you put into your daily life will support and help you through this journey. Stay committed and understand the power you have. We are all adjusting and trying to navigate this new normal. Please remember to be gentle with yourself and those around you. Change is not always easy. Use this time in the next week to prepare yourself mentally and physically by creating healthy and realistic habits.
