The term student-athlete implies that all students who are enrolled in an institution and play college sports are involved in secondary activities that enhance their education. Student-athletes often feel they must choose two of the following: academics, athletics, or a social life. The reason being is that the time commitment a student-athletes faces is much greater than that of a normal student, from daily practices to the travel required for competition. Student-athletes who choose to excel in academics and athletics often times don’t have the social life they desire. On the other hand, student-athletes who choose to excel in athletics and in their social life are often not as academically inclined as they should be. Then there are the student-athletes who choose to excel in academics and in their social life. Athletics tends to a take a backseat with this type of student-athlete as they are often benched, cut, or drop the sport and therefore become “normal” students. Student-athletes lives revolve around three spheres: academics, athletics, and a social life. However, all of these spheres are interrelated and what happens in one sphere will automatically affect the others. This website discusses the repercussions in the social and emotional life of student-athletes as a result of their academic and athletic spheres.
