Recruiting 101
Countdown: Avoiding Senioritis After Committing

There's no vaccine for senioritis, which makes it all the more imperative you take preventative measures against it. NCSA Athletic Recruiting gives tips on how to do just that.

If you're gearing up for Early Signing Day, you don't need us to tell you that you're sitting pretty. It's a lot less stressful - and a tremendous accomplishment - to have a written college commitment at this stage in the game.

Yet every year, already committed student-athletes make headlines for receiving notices from college admissions departments that, due to their senior year grades, their acceptance could be in jeopardy. So the next time you're thinking about not studying for your British Literature exam tomorrow to instead see the next Captain America movie with your friends, think again. Senioritis may seem like a casual term to toss around, but your current decisions still do have a lasting effect on your future plans.

Rather than chance missing out on all four years of your college tennis career, take a look at these easy tips to make sure you're maximizing your time in the classroom and on the courts - as well as out with your friends.


Plan Ahead

Although senioritis can be so tempting to give into while one eye is staring down the end of high school - not to mention the letter of commitment you already signed with loads of joy - you still have to meet all of the academic, tennis and extracurricular expectations that are still expected during your senior year.

Unfortunately, time management is just going to be even harder in college. Make use of organizational tools that fit your lifestyle - assignment notebooks, calendars, and even the notes app on your phone - and meet your commitments.


Make a Game of It

This might sound silly, but a lot of studies are finding out that rewarding yourself for different accomplishments makes you, well, do better.
