Competitive Advantages For Student-Athletes Who Join The Players Academy Community

Within the sports world, training periodization is considered to be the systematic planning of athletic or physical training. The aim is to reach the best possible performance in the most important competitions of the year. It involves progressive cycling of various aspect of a training program during a specific period.
 
Within the Players Academy we also include a students academic curriculum, their tests, assignments and due dates when planning for the season. We’ll carefully work with our student-athletes, teachers and coaches to make sure students have optimal time to study and train. We’ll not just organize academics around training but we’ll also organize the training schedule to respect the academic calendar.

Within an integrated academic and athletic schedule, student-athletes can dramatically increase the number of training units they receive each week. 

When it comes to training for sports, many student-athletes and their parents recognize the importance of eating well and exercising consistently. But sleep is often overlooked as a factor that can affect a student’s performance and recovery.
 
That’s unfortunate because getting enough quality sleep is critical for a young athletes’s energy, coordination, muscle growth, recovery, and repair, mental focus, ability to manage stress, and academic performance. 
 
With our integrated academic and athletic programming you have greater control over a student-athletes schedule. You can coordinate their athletic and academic endeavors to ensure they are getting the appropriate amount of sleep. The flexibility of our program allows us to manipulate the start time and end time of a students day to insure they are getting the proper amount of rest.

Your son or daughter will be working with dedicated, like-minded student athletes who share a similar passion and commitment to excellence. Our learners are motivated, persistent, independent, self-disciplined and goal oriented.

The more neuroscientists explore the link between exercise and the brain, the clearer it becomes that exercise provides an unparalleled stimulus, creating an environment in which the brain is ready, willing, and able to learn. 
 
Student-athletes within the Players Academy community gain an advantage in the classroom as each day they are prepared to learn through the rigorous exercise they experience while training.
