Many athletes believe just because they are good at their sport their academic profile does not matter. Academics can often be the deciding factor between two equally talented athletes. You can increase your chances of finding a scholarship by working hard off the court.

Many colleges are more focused than ever on increasing academic requirements and raising graduation rates, which translates into coachess being more focused on the academic profile of an athlete.

Your grades and SAT/ACT scores are as equally important as your sports stats and athletic skills. A good GPA and SAT score indicates to coaches you’ll probably achieve at least the minimum college GPA needed to stay eligible to play the sport. College coaches won’t be interested in someone who doesn’t perform in the classroom and only relies on their athletic talents to get them through school.

This page will include academic – specific information:

  • high school name and a graduation date
  • cumulative GPA
  • Class Rank
  • SAT and/or ACT score
  • Honors & Awards
  • extracurricular activities such as student council, honor roll, drama clubs, band, and scholastic charities
  • desired major (if you have one)

By clearly summarizing their academic information in their resume, it allows coaches to figure out if they are good academic fit for their program.
