Play for success employs the skills of professional athletes to challenge the physical and mental capacity of student athletes. As young athletes develop the physical stamina to excel in the sports arena their emotional and social skills become secondary concerns and can go under-developed. In many instances this leaves students and professional athletes vulnerable to the commitments and expectations of college programs and professional team dynamics.
