Here are 3 Ideas for Studying on the Pitch

Here are 3 Ideas for Studying on the Pitch
  • Opening Intro -

    Obviously, most jocks and cheerleaders would rather be occupied in the football pitch or basketball court instead of being held up in a library doing some boring reading.

-------------------------------------

While they are passionately participating in sports, their counterparts are busy studying for the semester’s exams. This makes athletes the unfortunate losers in college academics.

However, there is an easy way of solving this problem. The incorporation of academic learning into the physical education curriculum.

How would this be done?

1. Brain-teasers

Firstly, before every training session, the coach could organize for a short brain-teaser. He could ask a question from one of his players’ common units.

For instance, he may ask. “What is the Law of diminishing returns?” This is a relevant question for anyone majoring in Economics.

Therefore, if one of the athletes is able to answer correctly, the entire team would benefit by getting to know its definition.

In addition, it would help players know the team-mates from whom they could get academic assistance. If your teammate understood all the economic laws, wouldn’t you ask for his help?

2. Audio-books

The players should get constant access to audio-books when working out. Since their eyes and limbs are occupied during the strenuous exercise, why not use their ears to get educated?

Instead of playing music while they hit the gym, a book could be playing on the speakers. It could be ‘Principles of Biochemistry’ or ‘Fundamentals of Physics’; anything they could learn from as they pump iron and build muscle.

I know it may feel like the session would be boring. However, you must understand that it would have been even worse if they were forced to sit in a library and go through the same book. That is an undeniable fact. Therefore, being open-minded would help the players get the most out of the workout/learning session.

3. Study-groups

After training hard, the mind is able to store vast amounts of information. This could be utilized by organizing players into small study groups based on their majors.

As they cool-down after practice, the coach could hurdle them into a small corner of the pitch, bring out a few textbooks and let them learn together. This solves a lot of their academic problems.

  • Firstly, it eliminates procrastination. Since a specific time is set, it ensures that the players learn at the required time instead of postponing their studies.
  • In addition, they learn faster since they are taught by their peers.
  • Furthermore, it helps build teamwork by uniting the players. Instead of viewing each other as mere teammates, they come to see themselves as academic companions too.

Studying in groups can be done just before the players hit the showers since this is before they part ways.

Just as much as we want our athletes to excel in their sporting activities, we should also encourage them to do their best in their studies. By using brain-teasers, audio-books and study-groups, our athletes will also shine in all academic spheres. Therefore, if you know any college student who is struggling academically, share this with them. It could be on Facebook, Twitter or even the YouTube comment section. It doesn’t matter, just make sure they get the message.
