NCAA Champs/Life Skills


Academics | Athletics | Personal Development | Service | Career Development


The NCAA sponsored Champs/Life Skills program is committed to the total development of student-athletes; preparing them with "life skills" that are useful throughout college and post-graduation. This program, called C.A.T.S. (Challenging Athletes To Succeed), was implemented at SUNY Poly in 2000 and has been extremely successful in assisting student-athletes in the areas of academics, athletics, personal development, service, and career development.

A sampling of activities have been listed with each of the five areas of the program’s commitments.
