  Information about Mount Mercy University basketball practice, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA recruiting, sports scholarships, scores, player stats, and rankings. Most college and university team rankings, along with the latest scores, can be found in the table below. If you like to play sports, rather than just watch the game, you may be able to compete either at intercollegiate levels for competitive sports, or simply play intramural sports to have fun, and make new friends. If you are thinking about playing college sports, attend a summer sports camp. Not only will the coaching staff get a chance to see you play, but you can check out the feel of the campus over several months. Not all recruiting is done like NCAA football and basketball. NAIA college coaches have less restrictions concerning when they are allowed to talk with recruits, and NJCAA scouts may show up at your high school games without any prior notice. Some student-athletes are wise to delay college entrance by a full year. The extra year in high school or prep school can allow players to mature mentally, bring grades and test scores up, put on weight and gain muscle mass.

Athletic Scholarship Information

Mount Mercy University basketball practiceYou 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. Ranging 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 application deadlines. Schools also confirm that it is important to file financial aid forms such as the CSS Profile early in the school year.

There are several major scholarship databases available online. With an aggregate of well over a million scholarships, worth more than $3.4 billion, the scholarship search is the largest, most accurate and most frequently updated sports scholarship database. Average players often ask whether there are any sports scholarships available for them. Indeed there are, although you'll have to show a yearly pattern of improvement, and be ready to sacrifice yourself for the team. Take stock of your athletic abilities as you progress through high-school.

Team Practice

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 additional rounds of cuts. A college team practice is far more demanding than high school, because the level of play is higher. Returning players are put through their paces, run drills, lift weights, and do the grunt work 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.

Human Bone11913,20018,00011,800

What you're left with after the dust settles, is the real team. These 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 know 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 best buddies with everyone, 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. Be aggressive, and make a second try on a given play if you have time. It's one thing to make a good effort, but great players keep on trying until they succeed.
