Purpose:

Participating in college athletics requires an additional time commitment, over and above a student’s regular academic workload. If not managed properly, this additional commitment can take away from study time and class preparation. The time constraint cannot be alleviated. The subsequent difficulties that student athletes may encounter, however, as a result of participation in athletics, can be of primary importance to the high school teachers, staff and coaches. We as Educators must support our student athletes with programs for assistance, which are encourage by coaches and staff, this will increase productivity and their willingness to learn increases exponentially. Ultimately, the high school staff and coaches will judge success not by wins and losses on the playing fields, but by the percentage of student athletes that finish and attend college.
Participation in intercollegiate athletics may supplement their academic pursuit, but it will not replace it. The focus of the Football Program must be upon the support of the student athlete’s quest of academic development thru the use of sport as the motivational tool.
