On any given day, there could be a great number of challenges facing today's high school and college athletes and it may lead to stress in certain cases as they try and also prepare for their upcoming game or performance.

A student-athlete has to do well in the classroom, first and foremost, but they also have to continue to learn and grow on the practice and game field so that they're at their best to help the team be at their best.


There have always been obstacles any high school athlete has had to come face to face with over time in any era and some of those still remain from when you were in high school, whenever that was, but there are new ones that have developed over time as well, such as social media and more attention on what an athlete is doing and how they're performing.

In many case this could end up leaving that athlete in pressure situations more often than not that they have to try and adapt to in order to play well and not be overcome with stress, anxiety, burnout, or something else altogether.
