The mission of the Life Skills program is to inspire student-athletes to continue their pursuit of excellence when the crowd stops cheering.  The NCAA has developed the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program, (Challenging Athlete Minds for Personal Success).  CHAMPS focuses on five commitments that each selected institution’s program is contributing to the growth and development of student-athletes:

Academic Excellence

Athletic Excellence
