The rudiments of sports skills by the athlete during the early years of schooling can be developed further and improved upon during the university education period. The university setting can offer the athlete opportunity to excel in sport participation and in academics. Apart from the cognitive development of the athlete during university education, there is the possibility of exposure of the athlete to better equipment, good training facilities and services that can enhance the athlete 's performance in sportsThe university athlete needs to sustain high performance in sports and maintain adequate academic performance as well. The athlete needs to know how to utilise the resources available, to make him or her a top athlete, a successful and adjusted student. Ability to manage time adequately can ensure not only his/her active and adequate participation in sports but also his/her effective academic planning, in order to ensure success in both areas. Through counselling, the university athlete can develop awareness of what job opportunities his/her participation in sports can offer. The athlete can be assisted to recognise those social-psychological factors than can enhance performance and how his/her needs and special interest can be met. The athlete can also be assisted to learn about sports inspite of competing academic and other university demands.
