University of Akron Basketball Scores

Before making decisions about your future, compare programs carefully. Think about what career is best suited for you, and where you want to study. Request more information now.

Information about University of Akron basketball scores, recruiting, scholarship eligibility, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA rankings. 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. Summer can be a crucial time for athletes who are looking to get recruited. Stay in touch with prospective college coaches throughout the summer, and keep training hard, as if you were sure that you were playing in the fall.

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

University of Akron basketball scoresYou 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.

It's never too early to start planning for a sports scholarship. 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.

Some players quit sports because they can't make the grade academically, after heavy lifting, running and long practices. Away games only add to the time commitment of being a student-athlete. Others quit because they are sick of getting their butts whipped on a daily basis. What you're left with after the dust settles, is the real team. Those are the folks you lift with, and often live with as well. To succeed in practice, and actually make the team, here are some rules to follow. Sure, you knew most of these, but do you actually do them?

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. Your coach determines whether you get in the game or not, and how much playing time you get. Work hard in practice, and listen to your coach. Practice is how you prepare for games. If you get lazy, and decide to take it easy during practice, coaches will take notice. Push yourself, work hard, and you'll improve as a player. Find a position you really like to play, not just settle for what you're good at. Over the long haul, you'll have a better career. Be aware of your competition. There are plenty of people who want the same position you do, and if you want to start, you'll have to be the best at your position.

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. If your school doesn't have advanced machinery in the weight room, you're better off using free weights, and pulley systems that allow you to copy the same motions you make when playing.

Track stars have revealed the secret to developing running speed. By controlling your breathing, you can supply oxygen to your muscles before they start to cramp up. 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.
