The Playbook’s goal is to empower and aid student-athletes in their unique journey through college; enabling them to achieve success in the classroom, their respective sport, and in their social lives. The Playbook is student-athlete specific not sport specific book meaning each reader is able to have their personal Playbook regardless of the sport they play. The book takes the reader through a goal setting exercise, discusses how to manage time as a student-athlete, the art of communication and the importance of developing relationships with teachers/coaches/teammates/classmates along with providing tips on studying and test taking.
