It’s a big day on the sports calendar for all high school teams across the state of Iowa, and that includes ADM athletics. The football, volleyball, and cross country teams will all be getting going today as the fall sports calendar offically starts.

Now the first day is traditionally not fun to be an athlete. There will be a lot of conditioning, a lot of nervous energy, and lots of learning as coaches try to establish daily schedules and routines.

Every high school athlete across the state of Iowa will be filled with high expectations and a lot of excitement. It’s not easy managing expectations and often teams aren’t where they want to be, so coaches throughout the state will be preaching a day by day approach to getting better. If ADM teams can focus on getting better that day, and not on a couple weeks from now, they all have lots of potential to have really good seasons.
