The life of a student athlete is stressful. There are multiple deadlines to meet for school, while at the same time you have to attend numerous practices and games for your sport.

Although daunting, managing such a tight schedule is possible. It’s important to remember that if these commitments are weighing you down, you’re not alone. Within the Rosary Academy community, a majority of students are also athletes who deal with the task of balancing school work and practice.

Brittney Pinzon says, “The life of a student athlete is stressful at times, but it’s worth it in the long run for college.” Anna Shyne also says, “As long as you stay on task and balance your time well, the work load won’t be too bad.”

Managing school and sports is very important, so here are more tips to help you out:

  • Balance your time. You need to have an equal distribution of time between school and sports.
  • Stay organized. Knowing where your school work and sports gear are before you go to bed will make you less of a frantic mess the following morning.
  • Don’t Procrastinate. You need to crack down on homework and studies when you have the chance.
  • Destress. Find an activity besides your sport because your brain need to relax from the constant go, go, go.
  • REMEMBER! You are not alone; there are so many people around you dealing with the same balance issues right now, and you can always go talk to them or ask for help.

Overall, balancing school and sports is an overwhelming job, but always keep in mind, it’s worth it in the long run! These memories will last a lifetime and you won’t want to change anything that you have experienced, because they make you unique. They make you a student-athlete!
