I was a college athlete and this was definitely a challenge. But with dedication and focus you will have no issues. Use your free time wisely. For example, if you are going to an away game and traveling via bus or airplane, use the travel time to study. Usually schools have great resources for student athletes as well. Check into your schools specific resources. For example, mine had dedicated spaces for athletes only to study, print assignments, etc. We also selected our classes each semester prior to other students to make sure we scheduled around practice times. We had dedicated counselors and tutors as well.

Hope this helps!

It's a good idea to set aside specific blocks of time on your calendar that are the same every week that you can set aside for homework and studying. Don't let assignments get undone until the last minute. Try to find times that you can get extra homework time in. For instance, if you are an athlete and go on an away trip for a game, see if you can catch up on reading assignments on the bus. If you are in one of those fluff classes in college and they don't mind it, you can get homework done for serious classes during those courses. There are work-study jobs on campus that will often let you study on the job as long as no one is asking for assistance at the desk. Find ways to give yourself back time during the week.

Hi Madie,

It can be difficult trying to juggle sports and school. Just remember there are resources out there to help you if needed. Your school might offer college tutors for student athletes. Even if you understand the topics, these tutors can help you stay focused and be productive. Make sure to also be open and honest with your teachers and coaches. If you are struggling with either, make sure to have the discussion and see what you can do. You will be surprised how open and helpful people can be when you ask for help.

Although you will be busy, you will be able to do it. Time management! Be sure to make schedules and outline important dates/practices so you know in advance.
