Should student athletes have to get good grades to play sports?

  • Yes they should

    You should because they have to focus on grades and make sure that they are prepared for the future. If they are focusing on sports what will happen to their grades. Down down down, so they will have terrible grades and only 2% of people make in into MLSE other than baseball and in the MLB 11% make it.

  • Yes!!!Yes!!!!!Yesyesyesyesyes yes yes

    Your career as a major league player will only last you so long. Most athletes normally retire around the age of 33. So when you retire, what will you do to get money? You’ll need to get another job to get money so you are able to afford what you need to live your life happily. Connecting to that, in the TD commercial, it states that retirement is getting worse and so when people retire from sports, they won’t have the education to get a new job because they were focusing on of other sports instead of school. That’s why you need good grades even if you get on to your major league team. It’s always good to have a backup plan. Which continues into what i want to talk about next. Athletes thats want to be in the major leagues usually don’t have a backup plan so they’re expecting to make it into their major league.

  • Yes yes yes

    Athletes that want to be in the major leagues usually don’t have a backup plan. If they do not make it into their major league, they will not be able to get a good job if they don’t get good grades in school. That's why athletes should maintain a good grade to stay on a team.

  • Yes yes yes

    Because the word student athlete student comes first so that's why you should get good grades first. Also if you become a football star or go to the nfl and you retire at lease you have a education for another good job that gives good pay so that's why school comes first.

  • What about after sports

    Sure, sports can get you a long way in life, but what happens if you finish your career? Then what will you do? What will you do with your life if you didn't get your degree and no job will hire you?? Long story short, grades get you farther in life than sports ever will.

  • Good grades = Good collage = Good job

    Student athletes should have to get good grades because you need good grades to get you into collage, which helps you get a good job. Even if they play sports professionally, after they retire from sports, they need something to do with their life. Good grades will help you there. The qualifying grade could be a "C" or a "D", or the student could only have to improve their grade. Also, kids who need better grades to play can use this as a motivation to get better grades than they have been. If they love playing the sport, and they need to improve their grade, they can remember that they need a better grade, and work harder so they can play.

  • Grades are important

    Students should have to get good grades to play sports. They should have to get at least a passing grade to play an school related sport. If they play outside of school, it should be their parents' decision. Although physical activity is important, without school, not everyone could make money. Students can get physical activity in P.E. Although it is always good to get more exercise, students should not only have to only work for it in the sport, but also in school.

  • Sports keep you in shape

    With the education it works out your brain muscles. If plan A didn't work the knowledge you have can back you up for the other jobs you might apply to. So think about your school work and sports when you play them and not in school SO STAY SMART KIDS :P

  • If they dont get good grades then it will cause obesity because there is not enough time outside and playing instead of homework

    Kids that dont get good grades in school should get to play sports because they need to get exercise. Also, It may cause obesity if they dont get outside and do other things. What will cause obesity is that they will be doing homework,, instead of playing and being active.

  • Making dreams coming true

    Us students have dreams to play sports. But we can not because of our sucky grades. Students should be aloud with out good grades, their parents want them to
    loving sports, so I can do my dreams of sports. Belive,protest in what u belive in. Love sports...Do what you want

  • They should be able to play sports.

    If they are failing school, but are good at sports, they shouldn't be kicked off. If they cant prove that they're good at school, they wont know if they want to do anything. If they play, they can know what they want to do later in life. They can like what they do

  • No, sports is a good thing

    If you have bad grades and you pay really good attention but you are just not getting it and the coaches say that you cant play, what are you going to do. Its just not fair that people who try at school and good at sports cant play. Maybe they have a disability for sports

  • Having to get good grades can limit success.

    Imagine a person who is gifted at playing a certain sport. After school, on the weekend, whenever you see them, they're playing this sport that they are so gifted at. However, this child has a learning disability and cannot perform well in school, no matter how hard they try. The school that they attend says that all athletes must have a C average in all of their classes to play sports, but our friend's best is a C- or D+. They are very poor as well, so they cannot afford to play sports outside of school. This sport could be a ticket out of poverty, but they are not allowed to play it competitively. Is it fair to take away this child's only chance at success because of something that they can't change?

  • Giving chances... Its essential

    What if a student has a learning disability, they would never have the chance to show others that they have a true talent that could expand into a life long career. If you dont give someone a chance, you will never get to see what they can do, someone out there that has a learning disability could be the next lebron james, micheal jordan, or even the great kevin durant. Youd be surprised

  • No, and here's why

    I don't believe so because some people struggle with a certain subject, and because of them trying there best, and NOT meaning the minimum GPA, they are kicked off their team. What about people who NEED this financial aid to get them to college? Maybe they can't get the best grades because they are trying to get a scholarship based on a school sport!

  • No killing dreams

    Right so I play for state in American football. When I first came to school I did not think much of it but then I started playing more and more until I tried out for my school the got picked up by my state. What I am trying to say is I found what I want to do in school and its a sport.

  • No no no

    They should be able to play sports with bad grades because they try there hardest and still get bad grades. But with a little help they can get better grades and work on there own. Also ITS AMERICA. ITS A FREE COUNTRY WE CAN DO WHAT EVER WE WANT. Done.
