Why play
college sports?

As a student-athlete, the value of college sports will benefit you during your four years in college, in your search for a career, and for the rest of your life.

It’s a decision
you’ll never regret

Academics Success

Student athletes graduate at a higher rate than students in general and often times perform better academically than their peers. They have access to academic support, such as state of the art technology and tutoring that can be a serious advantage in the classroom.

 

Scholarships

More than 150,000 athletes receive over $2.7 billion dollars in athletic scholarships each year from the NCAA. These scholarships can help cover the cost of tuition, meal plans, books, and room & board.

 

Elite training opportunitues

Student athletes have regular access to world class facilities, top-notch coaching, and advanced equipment. These resources typically cost Olympic athletes thousands of dollars each year but college athletes are able to use these resources at no cost to them. Often times the facilities, coaching, and equipment is comparable to or better than what you would find in professional sports.

 

Medical care

Student athletes have athletic trainers, team physicians, and physical therapists that are there to help with any injuries or ailments they may be facing.

 

Exposure and experiences

Student athletes have the opportunity to travel across the country and globe competing in regular season games, championships, and foreign tours. These experiences can create lifetime memories and open up doors for those who wish to play professionally or go pro in something other than sports.

 

Preparation for life

The job market is becoming increasingly competitive and being a student athlete gives you an edge over your peers. Many employers prefer to hire student athletes because they have a proven track record of displaying characteristics that are beneficial to a team. College athletics prepares you for any career by teaching you important skills such as leadership, time management, and how to work with others towards a common goal.

CMG helped me find the right college based on my background and wishes. College is a unique opportunity to get an education while practicing your sport at a high level. The adventure is truly amazing and it’s one that I wish all athletes could experience.”
