Champs/Life Skills

Champs/Life Skills
The mission of the NCAA is to maintain intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of the campus educational program and the student-athlete as an integral part of the student body. With this in mind, the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program was created to support the student-athlete development initiatives of NCAA member institutions and to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience within the context of higher education.

In the process of achieving this mission, the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program will: 

•  Promote student-athletes' ownership of their academic, athletic, career, personal and community responsibilities.      

•  Meet the changing needs of student-athletes.             

•  Promote respect for diversity and inclusion among student-athletes.             

•  Assist student-athletes in identifying and applying transferable skills.             

•  Enhance partnerships between the NCAA, member institutions and their communities for the purpose of education.      

•  Foster an environment that encourages student-athletes to effectively access campus resources.              

•  Encourage the development of character, integrity and leadership skills.

Participating members in the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program are provided with sample materials and supplemental resources which support a student-athlete's development in five areas: academics, athletics, personal development, career development and community service.
