Introduction

Here at the Academy of Sport Cave Hill, many student athletes spend countless hours per week in the pursuit of their athletic dream. As a result, they are usually limited by the amount of time left during the day for them to execute other activities. Such limitations can impact their ability to reach the pinnacle of their academic quests, and it is within our best interest to ensure that support systems are in place to counteract this impact.  One such system which is currently utilized at the Academy of Sports is a Student Athletes’ Study Hall. 
 
Purpose

Study hall serves the following purposes:
 
1.  Students are provided with a control environment conducive to studying
2. It mandates that the student athlete commits to a minimum number of hours studying per week (in our case 8 hours).
3.  Additional academic support is provided in the form of tutoring.
4.  It provides an additional resource for the student athlete to achieve academic excellence. 
5.
 
It assists in providing that additional academic rigour to the Academy of Sport’s programmes.
