a message from Patti Dickieson, Undergraduate Program Student Advisor, University of Manitoba Faculty of Kinesiology & Recreation Management
The most important thing I’ve noticed with student athletes is time management. That is huge in all aspects. I would advise to take longer to complete your degree and take time to enjoy both school and your sport. A 60% load is 18 cr. hrs. (3 courses per term), 80% is worth noting because of scholarships that is 24 cr. hrs. (4 courses per term). I recommend that at the beginning of every new term students take a look at their course outlines to see what will be required of them in each of their course and plot it down on the calendar so you can visualize it. Always be aware of voluntary withdrawl dates, don’t be afraid to talk to your professors ( yes, they are approachable). What truly gets students in trouble is when they want to do it all and take on too much. School, sport, work and a social life. It’s a fine line but by being aware of managing your time it is possible.
Key take-aways from the Panel
Time Management – plan ahead, compare your training, competition and academic schedules
Figure out what works for you
Communicate – get to know your advisors, instructors, professors
It’s okay to ask for help
Having interests outside of sport is beneficial to you as an athlete and as an overall human being – diversification is golden

The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba acknowledges that our offices are situated on Treaty 1 Land, the original lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Ojibway-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
The Treaties made on these territories are respected by all those who work at CSCM. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past that were made. In a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation, we dedicate ourselves to continually move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities for ongoing education and learning.
We understand that acknowledging this truth, though important, is only a small part in cultivating the strong relationships we strive to build and maintain with Indigenous communities. We continue to work towards this, with particular attention being paid to the sport specific calls to action #87-91 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We recognize we are not the first to live on this land, and thank these Nations for allowing us access to their land and water.
