These student athletes definitely surpass that. These sports become less extracurricular and more of a lifestyle once they reach the collegiate level. They aren’t doing it just for “fun” anymore. They are doing it to hopefully pursue a career out of it as well as to assist them in paying for their education. In the past, college sports have been more amateur which is why they didn’t get paid.
During college, kids become adults and need to pay for their own things because their parents aren’t going to pay for them forever. Athletes may take out student loans and put themselves in debt. Paying college athletes would make them less dependent on their parents and more dependent to pay off their debts and for their own things. Not all college sports athletes have insanely busy schedules, but a lot do, like division one football or basketball players. Football and basketball are very popular and commonly watched sports around America.
Schools should help pay students insurance, since all their time and efforts are going into school and sports. There are dozens of booster clubs that illegal try to support college athletes by paying them to play at their “sponsored schools”. They are not able to work to provide income for themselves, therefore sometimes insurance cannot be upheld. If their parents do not support them still, they are not able to pay for food, and transportation cost. Paying players would help schools attain top ranked athletes that would promote the school and help grow the sports programs.
There are some schools around the country that are year round. Advocates argue that summer break is a waste of time while students could be in school learning. On the other hand, opponents say that now schools are stressful and need a break. I believe that the three month traditional summer vacation should be maintained because school is stressful for many students, students want to travel and get with the family, and it could improve the economy. I believe that the three month traditional summer vacation should be maintained because many students get stressed.
How college sports affect education Abby Dyk 1. Introduction Have you ever thought athletics where valued more than schooling in your university? What makes these students viewed differently than the rest? The positive and negative effects of college sports have on education. College sports gives students an advantages in education due to GPA restrictions, study table times, and mandatory grade checks to continue with their sport and continue receiving scholarships.
This money goes into the pockets of coaches, executives, athletic directs, funds the school, and some scholarships. Not only are athletes so tightly fettered to these contracts but they are affected in the classrooms as well. Athletes may spend more preparing/training for games than they would to study for school. * Few players who have aspirations and dreams of becoming doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc * Caters to schedule This results in little academic achievement. For most this would be considered a full time job.
Introduction Many parents or adults try to push their dreams of being a professional athlete onto their children. In today’s society it is alleged that success is accomplished through hard work and dedication, but pushing one too far is not the way to achieve such success. The effects of pushing one into doing something can be very harmful and cause many problems throughout their lives. There are many negatives to over achieving and trying to make your child or members of the team the best out there. Pushing one too far can cause overuse injuries that can hinder their playing and lives.
Student-Athletes Making the Grade The term “student-athlete” has an admirable ring to it. Kids often dream about sporting the colors of their favorite team and competing at the Division 1 collegiate level. Unfortunately, there is so much more to being a student-athlete than what you see on the field or court. Behind the scenes of the impeccable plays fans witness, there are athletes struggling to maintain an acceptable GPA and remain on the desired path of graduation. It takes a substantial amount of time and effort for a student-athlete to be academically successful in college.
Many young people see going to school as a chore and only go because they absolutely have to, while some will even skip school because they see it as boring and unnecessary. However, going to school is incredibly important for your career, future education you may wish to pursue, and social and communication skills. Teenagers are forever being told that they need a good education so that their can have the career they want, but many do not listen. However, it is important to remember that your schooling, no matter how long it may feel, lasts for a just a few short years compared to the rest of your life ahead of you. Therefore, it is better to sacrifice a little bit of fun now so that you can find happiness in later life, as you will be happier if you can do a job that you enjoy and afford to do the things you want.
I believe college athletes should be held by the same criteria as everyone else. I feel this way because it not fair to the average student in high school, It opens the door to possible exploitation by gifted athletes in college, and sets bad precedent for future student looking to attend ivy league schools. College sports are a necessary addition to any institution of learning but should not be manipulated to benefit few while the majority is left behind. Students looking to attend ivy league schools work diligently through high school as well as pull all nighters for potentially satisfying Sat scores to Ivy league schools of interest. The average student must work twice as hard and some in an attempt to be accepted into their college of choice.
