Are you a coach? Let us relate to your challenges.
Situation: Your best players can’t play because he or she is academically ineligible.
A segment of your student-athletes that want to play for your team are academically ineligible to play for you, more importantly, they are failing.
In many cases these are your best student-athletes because they devote so much more time perfecting their skills as an athlete BUT they neglect their work in the classroom.
Because of this they’ll not be prepared for life after high school. You care about their future beyond playing high school sports. You want to see them succeed in life. That is why you became a coach, because you realize the significant life lessons that you can pass on to these young men and women through sports and how it can add to the character and skills they need for effectiveness and success in life.
You engage and work with these student-athletes, and you know that it’s not because they are unintelligent; but for other reasons, they are academically ineligible, disengaged, and struggling as students. This segment of students-athletes that are underperforming is not incapable but for some reason is academically ineligible and disengaged in the classroom and other places of life.
You’re afraid that he or she will not graduate. But they are interested in sports, even obsessed with becoming a college or professional athlete.
How Urban Champions can help:
- The personal leadership skills that they learn makes them a more coachable player and better teammate and leader on the team. They learn what you want and reinforce it with their teammates and add to it in reaching their peers getting them to buy-in in ways you can’t. The same skills they need to achieve in the classroom are transferable on the field. This is what makes great players effective and successful, right? It’s not just physical ability; character makes a player work harder at winning and that transfers to the game and life. This is achieved by our Social-Emotional Skills Training with Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
- The development of more effective health and nutritional habits will optimize student-athletes’ performance in the classroom, on the court or field and life. It will assist with resolving the problems of being hungry, having limited time to study, tiredness, lack of focus and motivation. Your student-athlete’s better eating and sleeping habits will improve his or her ability to perform in the classroom, on the court or field and other aspects of his or her life.
