Student Athletes must practice time management and they must be very committed to a team. Student Athletes and their parents may find that they are financially struggling because of the high cost it stakes to be involved in such a position.

Student Athletes are involved not only in sports but in their academics as well. It is important for them to learn how to manage their time. They have to take many courses and must be willing to be committed to a team. There are many challenges for Student Athletes and some may have leave their teams because their grades feel or they could not afford to hold such a title. If one did not do well in high school than perhaps they should not involve themselves in college sports. I have s son who is a Student Athlete and I have seen and experienced the many challenges first hand.
It is expensive being a student and an athlete and they are not allowed to work and even if they were their lime would be so limited. I wish there were grants or some donations to help these students along. Imagine taking college courses in high school and going to practices, participating in games, attending meetings and finding time for your homework. It is a great opportunity but it can bring along stress.
The stress load for these Student Athletes is tremendous and some bring down completely. Some times they may lash out because they had a bad day or they missed an assignment. It is not an easy position but many do it to receive that scholarship at the end and go to their favorite college. I think that these students should be rewarded for their hard work and appreciated a whole lot more.
