FacilitiesI read a fantastic article published by the NCAA and I wanted to share it with you.  The author lists 10 benefits athletes receive by competing in sports in college.  Whether you receive a scholarship or not, you can receive some of the benefits.  Parents and athletes alike will be pleased by what you read in this article.

The first three benefits are:

1.  A college education.  This seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how many high school students never go to college.  A college degree has a direct impact on a person’s quality of life.

2.  Academic success.  The NCAA’s most recent data indicate that more than eight out of 10 (82 percent) Division I student-athletes are earning their degrees.

3.  Scholarships.  More than 150,000 student-athletes receive $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships each year from NCAA member colleges and universities.

For the complete article and some surprising information, continue reading.
