How Athletes Can Make the Most of Summer Break

While the days are longer during the summer months, students are faced with less structure, less responsibility and a whole lot more free time. This can lead to the dreaded Summer Slide, a time when many children forget some of what they've learned or slip out of practice academically during the summer months.

The same issue exists for many student-athletes who may no longer be participating in group sports through school programs. For these kids, there's a risk of athletic skills losing some of their edge. Luckily there are many ways an athlete can keep their skills sharp during the summer months so they're ready to compete come September.

Athletes of all ages have multiple options for off-season training. These tips can help student-athletes make the most of the summer months, helping them to become even more effective competitors during the following school year and beyond.
