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

  • You should always keep your grades up

    U only have to take an hour out of your day u can go do your thing outside until its dark then when it becomes dark study for like 30 mins or how long and then do your home work so it goes faster so u should keep your grades up no matter what dont you want to have a good carrer whats gonna happen if ur sports go down low and u need a job oh wait ur grades are terrible so ur not getting a job

  • They should have good grades

    They should have good grades because if they love sport so much then they would study and do their homework all they have to do is study for like 30 mins and do their homework then can go out side and their sports or what ever they need to do so all they have to do is study for like 30 mins and do their homework and they will pass

  • Education is more Important than Sports

    Roughly only 2% of college players will get a scholarship and only less than 1% will turn professional. What will the kids that spent all their time on sports do now? Go work a factory job? Some Might not even get a job! That is why you must have good grades.

  • Your suppouse to be a "student athliete that means school comes first

    Why should people with bad behavior be able to play sports if you have good grades then you get rewarded by playing sports . People with bad grades don't deserve to play sports . I got bad sports one time and i couldn't practice . I got to play in the game because i brought my grades up that's what I fell about this topic.

  • Reason why you need good grades

    You may be the best player in the history of sports but if your grades don't meet the GPA you need to play you aren't t be on the team. This being said grades come before the skill level because with bad grades and good skill equals too no playing time.

  • Yes yes yes!!!

    If your stupid but good at sports colleges wont want you, no matter how good you are. Colleges look at G.P.As and other stats. I say that people do need to get good grades to play sports. No matter how good you are your life depends on your education. GO TO SCHOOL AND BE NO FOOL.

  • It so obvious

    Scholastic states that less than 1% of people who want to be in the NBA really make it. Besides scholastic also states that people who are pro athletes only play for on average 3 years. What are you going to do the rest of your life? Being smart could also help you play sports

  • One word: Responsibility

    Athletes apparently drop out early because they want to do only sports. They don't care what happens afterwards, they just play because they think it'll make them famous. They're wrong. They should learn responsibility and actually do something in their lives. If they were more responsible, there actually might not be so many homeless people.

  • You need education first

    You go to school to learn, not for sports. You pay for school, the sports are just add on. Obviously sports are good for your health, but in the long term your education will prevail. Getting good job is what you work for in all your school years. You don't want to put it to waste!

  • Yes yes yes

    Yes yes yes yes Have you ever thought about the fact that when a man or woman is at school play sport the get called a “student athlete”. Notice how the word STUDENT comes first Less than two percent of men and women actually graduate from college or university and go on to become a professional sports man. However if you do become a professional sports player, the career 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 other sports instead of school. That’s why you need good grades even if you get on to a high level team. It’s always good to have a backup plan. Which continues into what I want to talk about next. Most athletes that have the ambition to make it in high level sports never have a back-up plan, therefore not thinking about life after.

  • 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

  • Old old old

    They should get good grades because it would be important to get good grades so that they get into a good college and have a good life instead of playing for money. Life isn't all about money instead it is about family and friends. If you have good grades play sports.

  • You don't need good grades to play sports

    You don't have good grades to play sports because they could be the next LeBron , Tyreek hill or Ronaldo and then more people would want to come to your school and personally I would not to go to a school that has a sucky team so I believe that you don't have to have good grades.

  • Athletes don't necessarily have to get good grades they can get average grades and do just fine.

    Some students have a better understanding to sports than others. It may be that student 1 excels at something student 2 may not. People have different abilities and interests and studying may not be one of their abilities. In order to get into professional sports I think doing average and graduating from high school or college is fine. It's almost like some people aren't good at sports but at studies but in reverse.
