Student-athletes face one of the most challenging experiences a college student can encounter. Not only do they have to balance a full load of classes and their social life on campus, they simultaneously must learn how to thrive in the high-pressure environment of NCAA athletics. While many student-athletes have goals of turning professional, the truth is that the vast majority of them won’t play their sport beyond their university experience. It’s absolutely necessary that student-athletes learn to harness their years on campus for immediate and long-term success. In this keynote, former NCAA Division I scholarship student-athlete Antonio Neves, and the author of Student Athlete 101, breaks down the key steps student-athletes must take to develop into top leaders on and off campus, and in their careers. He teaches them how to harness their natural attributes that include time management, teamwork, focus, and strong work ethic.
