Life of a Student Athlete
Being a student athlete is one of the most fun and exciting experiences anyone could ask for. You get to spend four years representing your university and playing the sport you love. There are so many benefits athletically, academically, and socially but with the many benefits of being a student athlete comes a great responsibility to represent your university well.
You will be expected to represent your team and university in a professional manner. In addition, you will be expected to train with your strength and conditioning coaches as well as practice with your team almost daily all while going to classes and studying for exams. Many student athletes feel that the demanding schedule actually helps them enjoy their college experience more and perform better academically.
The college schedule is very different than a traditional high school schedule. Typically, there is a lot more flexibility with your college classes and you are able to choose the classes that work best for you. As a student athlete, you will have to work your class schedule around your practice schedule. Many schools let student athletes pick their class schedule before the majority of the students so that they can attend classes and practice daily.
Your athletic demands will differ depending upon what level you are playing and what your individual teams schedule is like. Many student athletes have morning workouts, classes during the day, and practice in the afternoon. No matter what the individual schedule is all college student athletes will be expected to do strength and conditioning workouts in addition to team practices.
Competition is one of the most fun and exciting parts of college athletics. Each sport will have a designated season that allows them to compete in and out of their conference. Often times, teams will have to travel in order to compete. Traveling for competition will allow you to see different parts of the country and form a lifelong bond with your teammates.
