STUDENT ATHLETE PROGRAM
In today’s Education system, more importance is given to academic studies and less focus on skill development or extra-curricular activities. The concept of education has changed drastically over time, whereby more focus is now given towards a holistic development of students and schools are equally focusing on the same to develop students as all-rounder’s. Sports play an important role in educating students to become both mentally and physically strong.
Combining sports and education helps students in the following:
- develop a self-motivating spirit to do things on their own;
- take ownership of their success;
- relax from their daily routine of learning course syllabus and lessen the exam stress;
- keep the mind, body and soul synced and maintain a balance between work and play.
- imbibe leadership skills;
- impose qualities such as; tolerance, patience and tips to handle pressure;
- teaches the value of team spirit and proficiency to share victory and defeat.
One of the most important aspects required in sports is discipline, which has been derived from the word disciple – follower of a learned teacher. Having a professional coaching in sports helps develop obedience, self-confidence and the ability to determine winning or losing with extreme will power. We also have to agree that a good academic background is an important aspect towards pursuing a career in sports or as a professional athlete as the education qualification will serve as a supporting pillar in the long run. In sports there can be hits and misses but a good educational backup will help maintain a good lifestyle besides continuing sports. Students are thought equal importance to both education and sports to maintain a proper balance in excelling in both areas.
Thus, here at Cyberlynx International College we understand the importance of producing a well-balanced all rounded Graduates. Hence, we have introduced the Student Athlete Program (SAP) to allow a Professional Platform for students to pursue their dream in Sports without making a choice between Sports or Education qualification as you can earn both simultaneously.
