Get info about Penn State University marching band, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA standings and game results. Athletics program data follows where available. Further, a long list of college and university team schedules, individual player stats, and the latest game results, can be found below. If you are a player, on the other hand, you may compete either at the intercollegiate level for competitive sports, or simply play intramural sports to make new friends. In order to stay on track with your ability to get recruited, it's a good idea to make sure you keep working out throughout the off-season.

It's a good idea to look at the graduation rate of athletes at the colleges you'll apply to. A lower graduation rate may indicate that the college accepts athletes whose academic record isn't strong enough to succeed in college over the long-term. Not all recruiting is done like NCAA Division I football and basketball. NAIA college coaches have less rules on when they are allowed to talk with recruits, and NJCAA scouts may show up at your high school games without any notice. College coaches want to see you play. A lot of the time college coaches may have only one chance to see potential recruits play, so be ready to shine if you are visiting the campus in person. Colleges that are eager to recruit star freshman athletes may urge student-athletes to apply via early decision. Students who are considering applying via early decision should be aware of the rules and obligations that this commitment entails.

Althletic Scholarship Information

Penn State University marching bandYou don't have to quarterback the university football team to a state championship to earn an athletic scholarship. Most major sports that are able to field a team in intercollegiate competition have sports scholarships available. From women's gymnastics to men's track and field, coaches are seeking players to build a team around. That leadership role often is accompanied by a full-scholarship. The best time to begin searching for scholarships is before your senior year, in order to meet deadlines. Schools confirm that it is important to file financial aid forms such as the CSS profile early to qualify for the most competitive scholarships.

There are many scholarships that focus on less tangible qualities, such as the ability to lead a team, motivate others, and learn new skills rapidly. Take stock of your athletic abilities as you mature through high-school. Information on the financial aid scholarships page is derived from the US Department of Education.

Team Practices

So, you've been recruited, or made it past a walk-on tryout. That's when the real challenge starts. You still have to make it through daily practices, and several rounds of cuts. A college team practice is far more physical than high school, because the players are so much better. Returning players are put through their paces, run drills, lift weights, and do the running that comes with being on the team. Freshman and walk-ons, on the other hand, are special targets for the coaching staff, looking to test their ability. They are forced to run sprints and do agility drills, to see who's ready to quit before the game even starts.

Get along with your team members, and don't hog the ball. This doesn't mean you have to be buddies with everybody, but don't make enemies either. If you help the players around you to do better, you'll be surprised at how good that makes you look. Know that giving anything less than 100% effort will be resented by the team. Follow the advice that coaches give you, and it will make a big difference in how you play, because most coaches were star players earlier in their careers. If you get lazy, and decide to take it easy during practice, the coaches will take notice. Push yourself, work hard, and you'll improve as a player. Finally, find a position that you really like to play, don't just settle for what you're good at. Over the long haul, you'll have a better career.

Athletic Training Exercises

In the weight room, don't be fooled by players who are always pumping iron. It takes a lot more than big muscles to succeed in college sports. Players are becoming more agile, and developing superior game skills every year. You need to develop muscle strength as well, it's true, but your primary focus in weight training should be to use the equipment to help you develop strength along a natural range of motion. Good, old-fashioned push-ups, with a clap in the air every other rep, will do wonders to increase your chest and triceps. Chin-ups will increase your biceps, and pull-downs will bring out your lats.

Track stars have revealed the secret to developing running speed. You need to be able to breathe in proportion to the distance you are running. As lactic acid builds up, and muscle fatigue sets in, untrained players think they've reached their limit. Track stars, and well-coached basketball teams, train by sprinting short distances, over and over. It's not fun, but it works. After a few months of training, the lungs begin to process oxygen more efficiently, and players find that they can run long distances non-stop, or sprint for a longer period of time. To improve your endurance for long-distance running, drag a small car tire behind you, tied onto a long rope around your waist.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
