Find info about Chapman University mens gymnastics, recruiting, scholarship eligibility, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA rankings. Athletics program data follows where available. If you are a college sports fan, a long list of college and university team schedules, individual player stats, and the latest game results, can be found in the table 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 on campus. Sports camps offer athletes a great way to train, and to work on specific skills with real college coaches during the off-season.
For college-bound students, applying to college has many steps, and for student-athletes who plan on playing college sports there are additional factors to take into consideration, such as time-management, strength building, and weight-loss. While college sports websites can provide data on men's gymnastics, such as competition results and team rankings,
it's best to double-check with the gymnastics department for the complete roster, and updated men's gymnastics schedule. 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 spend a lot of their time at summer sports camps evaluating athletes, and offering tips and direction. This is a great chance to meet the coaching staff in a relaxed setting. Students must meet specific eligibility requirements each year to participate in sports, and to receive financial aid at college.
Athletic Training Exercises
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. Always maintain a positive attitude, especially when you're in pain, or losing a game. Believe you'll be successful, and then go out and make it happen. 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. 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. You need to develop muscle strength along a natural range of motion. A few simple exercises done right can replace thousands of dollars of weight-room equipment.
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.
