College is a time to meet new people, have fun, and learn new things. Sometimes all those things can be a lot to take in. When you are starting off in a new place it can be hard to learn how and when to make time for certain things, especially when you are an athlete. College athletes struggle with all the same things as every other college student but they have a little more on their plates. With practices and classes it can be hard to find time for anything else. Just because their athletes does not mean they do not want to go out and have fun with their friends. It just means they have to work twice as hard to make sure they have free time to go out with their friends.

 

In Arthur Luebber’s article, he gives helpful tips on how to best manage your time as a college athlete. He says that a sports team can be compared to a full time job, I agree with this statement 100%. With team meetings, practices, and games, it can be hard to find time for anything else. When you leave practice, or come home from a game you are physically and emotionally drained. Its tough to sit down and do hours of homework after all of that. Luebber says that you should try to keep your schedule as simple as possible. Try and cut out unnecessary time wasting things, like taking a long time to get ready in the morning because little things like that can free up a lot of time for whether it be studying or just some free time to spending hanging out with friends

 

In another helpful article, written by Xenia Stewart, she explains that a establishing a schedule is crucial. You will have to base it around your practice and class schedule. Stewart also happens to be a senior guard for the Pittsburgh University women’s basketball team, so she speaks from experience. She goes on to tell the readers, “Keep in mind, though, there will likely be team rules about missing classes, being late for practice and workouts, etc. It would be wise not to try to squeeze things in at the last minute.” So you really do have to stay ahead of the game (literally and figuratively).

 

Overall, the most important thing for a college athlete to stay on top of their game is to have a strict schedule, and STICK TO IT. If you set your schedule and always make sure you have time to study and do homework you will always be able to do what you want in your free time and won’t be stressing over what assignments are due. YOU CAN DO IT ALL, IF YOU BALANCE YOUR TIME!
