Be a good person that attracts people. Be yourself it will look good on you. Stay within yourself and learn your limits with hard work and dedication a weakness can be turned into a strength. Push yourself when you're tired. Remember if you're tired chances are the other guy is to. Going extra mile is what makes champions. Be in the habit of not cutting corners no matter how trivial or insignificant any task may seem. This will build endurance and foster discipline which is hard to master. Work on not giving into peer pressure. Practice and use the fundamentals of your sport. Once while I was watching the warm-up of an N.B.A. game, Allen Iverson while making passes was following through perfectly with both hands. I was impressed that a star would pay so much attention to a minor detail. As a matter of fact I recall now making the Varsity Men's basketball team in junior college due to a passing drill. I was at half court and an assistant coach was standing right next to me. I was doing the follow through that I mentioned Iverson had done. The coach told me he was going to put me on the team because he liked the way I was passing the ball. My mindset was that a solid pass would put my teammate in their best position to perform. Do your sporting tasks the way they are supposed to be done then when you have mastered the fundamentals you can then begin to develop your own style not the other way around. If there is something you think can benefit you do it. In life, "most people don't do the things they need to do in order to get the things they need". So that means if there's something lingering in your thoughts saying you should be doing this, do it, don't make excuses.
It helps to be on a team. It helps to receive recognition: great scorer, defender, leader, etc. Some athletes impress because they have a lot of energy and don't give up. This can especially help those who aren't blessed with tremendous physical talents or body size. I'll leave you with I've seen people get picked for teams who were less talented than the ones who were cut so don't give up. That's what called the political side of the game. Be confident and determined!


Thank u joe this will help me out a lot i know now i need to stop working on the hard stuff and work on the fundamentals Lane D. Translate

Hi Lane! In my experience, most universities will give you the chance to have a great experience. (If you are looking for a very specific field there may be a little more vetting you need to do) but college is all about what you put in to it.

I went to a small local public university in New Jersey that has a very high acceptance rate. Some people may have a negative view about a school that accepts a lot of people, and may think that going to a place more selective is the only way to succeed in certain field, but that's not true. I had the benefit of going to this small school on a small scholarship and was able to be a big fish in a little pond, so it was easier to find opportunities, mentors, internships, etc., and I hit the work force immediately with a job because of my small "low rated" college.

So long story short, no matter where you get the chance to go to college, you can be successful. Don't let not getting a scholarship to a certain school make you change your career path. If you know what you want to be, put your energy into learning, being curious, making positive connections with everyone you can, and you will have success. Good luck!
thanks for the help Lane D. Translate
Lane, What sports do you play? You may want to talk to the athletic director/coach(s) at your current school to get advice and suggestions. You'll also need to consider the division level for the colleges you're interested in. Division I and II colleges offer full and partial scholarships (Division II are more limited), but Division III does not. Aaliyah Miller Translate

Lane,
If I'm understanding your question correctly, you are worried about choosing a school that may not fit your career needs. The first 2 years of undergraduate studies at a 4 year college are general studies. These general studies will help you find your best fit for your future career. If you are looking at a 2 year or a technical college, they have a more defined study plan but that doesn't mean you can't complete your general studies and move on to a college that fits your need more appropriately.
thank you lisa! Lane D. Translate

Lane, I answered your other question but I would suggest job shadowing or interviewing an athletic trainer to see what their job is all about. You can ask them questions and learn if the career would be a good fit for you. My son received his bachelor's degree from an university and went on to another university to obtain his Master's degree. These steps are necessary to become a certified AT.
