Why Play University Sports?
A university degree has a direct impact on a person’s quality of life. According to Academic Ranking of World Universities, 50 of the top 100 universities are in the United States. Student-athletes can freely pursue a sports career while having a reputable university degree.
A well-tailored schedule is crucial for student-athletes to reach their full potential. NCAA student-athletes have priorities in signing up for classes and enjoy flexible academic schedules that fits their athletic needs. Talented athletes have a higher chance of being admitted into university compared to regular students.
Elite Training Opportunities
Student-athletes have regular access to top-notch coaching, facilities and equipment. These resources typically cost Olympic athletes thousands of dollars per year.
More than 150,000 university athletes receive $2.7 billion in athletics scholarships each year from NCAA member universities.
Academic Support Systems
University athletes receive academic support, such as state-of-the-art technology, tutoring, and much more to help them succeed in the classroom.
Athletic Support Systems
Student-athletes have access to cafeteria “training tables” on campus, with Division I and II schools permitted to furnish unlimited meals. In addition, some schools hire nutritionists and dieticians to work with each student-athlete.
Exposure and Experiences
Student-athletes have the opportunity to travel across the country and around the world for regular-season contests, NCAA championships and foreign tours. These experiences can open doors for the few who will compete professionally and for the majority who will go pro in something other than sports.
Preparation for Life
Increasingly, the business world is focusing on creating a team environment with employees. By competing in university sports, student-athletes learn important skills such as leadership, time management and how to work with others toward a common goal.
