Student Athlete Life

Life as a Student-Athlete in the USA, you will have an opportunity that very few others will ever receive: the chance to develop your football career with full time, top quality training AND the chance to earn an invaluable academic qualification.

You will attend academic classes 5 days a week. Typically, you will be training every morning for a few hours during season.

You will then go to classes in the afternoon. In your first year all students go to the same classes, these are general classes such as Maths, English, Science etc.

After dinner you may be required for more training or you and your team-mates may go to the College gym to do some extra fitness work.

You will also have at least 2 games every week in season. One of these games will probably be an away match. Depending on how far away the opposition is you may have to travel for several hours. Most teams travel by luxury bus to away games, although some of the bigger teams transport their players by plane!

Whilst you are training every day, playing one to two times a week you are also expected to keep your grades up.

In your free time, if you have any, you can pretty much do as you wish, going to the beach, going to the cinema or watching one of the other varsity sports teams play at the College.
