Athletes Add Structure to Fuel Productivity

Sunshine 16 Westside’s Jalen Tennyson follows a detailed schedule to keep herself on track – virtual workouts included.

When you heard that things began to be cancelled due to COVID-19 – school, volleyball tournaments, and more – even if it was fleeting, you might have daydreamed about sleeping in and watching Netflix on a daily basis. It sounds tempting, but it won’t help developing competitors stay on track with their athletic and academic goals.

We checked in with a few student-athletes to see if they felt that it was important to create a daily schedule. Turns out they not only think it’s important, but many high schoolers have shown their maturity during this extraordinary time.

“I felt it was important for me to have a plan during this
time of isolation because I want to stay on track and remain focused as an
athlete,” said sophomore MB Jalen Tennyson of Sunshine 16 Westside
and Marlborough HS in California. “Having a personal academic schedule
for myself also has the added benefits of helping me limit distractions, stay
organized, and remain focused and productive.”
