The competitive athletics programs of member institutions are designed to be a vital part of the educational system. A basic purpose of this Association is to maintain intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of the educational program and the athlete as an integral part of the student body and, by so doing, retain a clear line of demarcation between intercollegiate athletics and professional sports (NCAA, 2011).
My journey on my high school tennis team has been a peculiar one. Going into my freshman year I was touted as one the stellar players, one who was on the path straight to varsity. Unfortunately, I tore one of the ligaments in my right wrist and was sidelined for
Any school district knows that there are many costs that go into athletics. In her article, Amanda Ripley reported that simply maintaining a grass field can cost more than $20,000 a year, she also states that new bleachers can cost half a million dollars (10). In ripley’s article “Should Your School Get Rid Of Sports”, Superintendent Ernest Singleton made a decision to suspend all school activities and recognized his school district could save about $150,000 dollars a year (Ripley 10). In addition school athletics should be removed because it could reduce large amount of money put into the athletic programs. It’s clear that saving money isn’t the only advantage to cutting physical activities it can also help students to focus in their education.
On May 11, 2017, Dundee Central School had a Board of Education meeting. Nine members were in attendance. The main focal point of the meeting was student Athletics. Member Kelly Houck brought up that student Athletics are becoming an issue with attendance. Less and less kids are participating in sports. She stressed that this was not a budget issue, it was a capacity issue.

Introduction “Only 8% of high school athletes go to the next level.” There are very few kids that will pick a school sport over a travel/AAU sport. A sport of choice is anyone's decision, but who you play for could be a big factor. Kids from all around the world play travel sports trying to improve on specific skills. This could lead kids into not playing for their own high school team, but going and playing for someone trying to gain recognition or get a higher level of competition. The cycle of kids abandoning their team for a travel team needs to stop; it is taking away from the community as a whole and MHSAA should issue restrictions against students choosing travel leagues over school sports.
The Cornerstone University Athletic Department was a great experience to the sports management world. Before this internship started, I was hopeful to learn many new things, and I did. I was excited to work with so many people that love sports as much as I do. I was pleased to

In the pantheon of great American sports, there is one that stands out. It has been called the great American pastime. Yes, that great sport known as tennis.

AVAILABILITY: Are there any difficulties you might have in attending a class? (Transportation, work schedule, etc.) Explain. * No, there are no difficulties, but there might be times when I am not able to be at a class because of something important like an appointment, or something at school. My mom will always try to reschedule if that happens and she will also make sure that I get to each lesson.
I believe that perseverance through dark and difficult times will make you become a stronger person. I was injured for fifteen months last year, and during those fifteen months I couldn’t play tennis, the sport I love so much. I felt like I was slowly eroding away, like the layers of the earth when there is nothing to keep it grounded. There was nothing to keep me grounded, and I felt stranded in a raging sea, desperately attempting to stay afloat. I had no outlet for any of my emotions, and how could I ignore the fact that my future tennis career might be nonexistent? I had doubts whether I would ever be able to play tennis again, let alone at a competitive level since I had excruciating pain even walking up a flight of stairs. There was
FCR – MEM Hotels and Transport On short notice, I found myself transiting through MEM positioning to CHS for a LCF flight. The St. Jude Golf Tournament was taking place and our primary hotel was oversold. Initially, I was placed in a Marriott on Nonconnah Blvd. Being very familiar with Memphis, I knew that this location is in a dangerous part of town. I spoke with travel and they shifted me to a Hampton Inn 20 miles away in Bartlett, Tennessee. Memphis has a high crime rate, especially around the airport. The only area that is suitable for our crews is east of I-240 and north of Poplar Pike. Shady Grove Road is in a good area, but two miles further east is Germantown is more pedestrian friendly.
Tennis class is an exciting part of my weekly agenda because tennis belongs to an elite class of sports that I truly relish and enjoy. I go to classes on Saturday afternoons, sometimes the weather cooperates other times not. I prefer a calm breeze cooling the sunlight-tainted skies, but this is not always the weather during classes. On a day that appeared to bring nothing but clear skies, gray clouds rolled over the horizon and we had to travel to tennis class under the cover of storm clouds.
