Providing Precollegiate Assistance for High School Athletes in a Big City School District.
Mares, Kenneth R.; And Others
The purpose of the 1985 Summer Program for High School Athletes was to develop and conduct a pilot program that would acquaint high school athletes with information and skills to better prepare them for the transition from high school to higher education. The University of Missouri-Kansas City conducted the 2-week program in conjunction with the Kansas City School District and resource persons in the community to better prepare high school athletes for the adjustments that must be made for a successful transition to university level athletics. A variety of themes and topics in the curriculum were selected to help students prepare for a career in college and thereafter. Curriculum components included: athletic injuries and treatment methodologies; community commitment; diagnostic assessment in reading; ethics; interviewing; leadership; nutrition; parental concerns; recruiting; self awareness/stress; study skills; substance abuse; test taking skills; and future considerations. Appropriate cooperation between a university, a school district, and other community institutions and resources can help high school athletes prepare for a successful transition. (CB)
