Life As a College Athlete

Life as a college athlete

Playing college athletics can be a tremendous thrill and opportunity. You get to travel to different parts of the country, play with and against the best players in the country, and play in amazing venues often in front of large crowds. A few lucky one’s will even play on TV. It also offers you the opportunity to make life-long friendships with your teammates who you will spend a great deal of time with over the course of four years. Playing college athletics also requires time-balancing and some sacrifice on your part. You may practice very early in the day or very late at night and games and travel will cut into classes and study time and other aspects of your college experience. The most successful college athletes learn to balance sports, academics and their free time to succeed. One of the best parts of being a college athlete comes after graduation when many companies seek out college athletes for job opportunities. Why? Because those companies know the sacrifices that many college athletes made to compete at their sport and know those graduates have learned to balance their time and work with other teammates of varying backgrounds towards a common goal.
