What High School Athletes Need to Know

Are you ready to take your game to the next level? We’re not talking about your game on the field or court, we’re talking about the game of life. College is opportunity: A bigger stage, brighter lights, and a new field of competition. In college sports, you’ll be able to see how you stack up against the best athletes you can find. And best of all, those roster spots can come with scholarships: financial help that shows.

Which College Is Right for You?

It’s a great question: What college or university would be the best place for you to bring your skills in the next couple of years? The answer is, no one knows until they get there. Just for an example, look at the cases of several high-profile college athletes. Many of them went to one of the best schools for their sport, where they discovered they were not getting the playing time or support they expected. Some of them transfer, only to arrive at their next school where they become a huge factor in the growth of the program. The best advice is follow your dreams, but don’t get bogged down in the decisions—making a change isn’t the end of the world.
