Many middle school and high school students are enrolled in highly competitive club programs,
like club lacrosse, club hockey, club basketball, or club soccer. They start at an early age and well before pre-requisite academic skills have been established. They receive exceptional coaching to perfect their athletic skills. Sadly, the academic skills are ignored and most students are left alone to figure things out.
For student-athletes, the coaching process is similar to the academic coaching process but far more complex. This is because student-athletes have far less time and energy to manage their academics. They are still required to complete the same amount of assignments and excel on the same types of assessments. Below are some additional steps that may be addressed with working with student-athletes, or any student that is juggling a demanding year-round extracurricular activity.
