Information about City Colleges of Chicago basketball schedule 2015, 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. 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.
There are strict rules regarding contacts from NCAA Division I and Division II coaches. Therefore, students playing competitive sports sometimes must be the ones to initiate contact with college coaches. 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 are constantly looking for the best players to fill next year's open positions, and rely on many different methods to finding the right recruits. If you haven't been noticed, cold-calling coaching staff can get you an initial interview. 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
You 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.

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?
Practice the basics, over and over, especially targeting skills related to your position. Become a super-specialist, and you'll always find your place on the team. Be aggressive, and make a 2nd try on a given play if you have time. It's one thing to make a good effort, but great players keep trying until they succeed, no matter how many years of practice that takes. 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.

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. Most athletes simply run out of breath long before they need to stop running, because they aren't able to get the oxygen into their muscles fast enough. 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.
Create a Part-time Income Online
The goal here is to show you how to design a simple website that gets listed on search engines, and is able to generate a cash-flow within a few months. Sure, you've seen lots of sites telling you that it's easy to make money online, but if it was that easy, everyone would be rich. The truth is that creating a part-time income for yourself is possible, but it's a fair amount of work up-front. If you keep working on it a few hours a week, you can increase your daily earnings as your website develops. The basics are as follows:
Doing business online is one of your best options to raise extra income. Success is governed by two main factors, visitor traffic and sales conversions. How many of the right people can you attract to your site, and how many of those people can you persuade to take a given action? The easiest way to start is by opening a Wordpress blog, and monetizing with Google AdSense pay-per-click ads. Adsense works great, in fact, but you have to understand the concepts, especially how text-ad bidding works, and how the Adsense code interprets your page text. Just making a website isn't enough, if no-one can find it. You'll then need online marketing skills, and the ability to drive conversions. All of this takes work.
