Opposing viewpoint:Gretchen Sheckler, who has bachelor’s degree in finance, Reason: I believe that young professional athletes should equip oneself with good education to be more secure in future after retirement from sports. No, it does not differ from our initial personal viewpoint because I believe that education plays and important role in everyone’s future. . Write a few paragraphs in support of the viewpoint that you do not favour. According to text read,many parents ofyoung professional athletes are not worried about their children missing education. There are many reasons why young professional athletes should place importance in education as well as their career. Those athletes with a good academic background or foundation highly are destined to be successful in obtaining a good career after an early retirement from the world of sports.
Sport careers are typically shorter than most other careers or occupations, as most athletes retire, voluntarily or nvoluntarily, during their mid to late twenties. Athletes are often forced to contend with the early age of career termination, the need to find another career to pursue, and the diverse ways in which they choose to or are forced to leave their sport. Many are lost when the reality of the real life sinks in and find it hard to cope. Education can often be overlooked by professional athletes, once they have made it to their desired sports league.
This is a major concern because many professional athletes have no funds or career options to fall back on. Without a college degree, higher education, or in some nstances even a high school diploma; there are limited options to explore in the world outside of athletic. An athlete with a good academic background will be able to adapt to a career transition easily. They are well equipped with good social skills and self- esteem which mainly comes from real world experience.
These makes the scope of jobs wider and not only confined to the world of sports but to all walks of life. No doubt that an athlete who has a good education is able to maintain a good balance in their life by pursuing other career which might not be related to the world of sports. CHAPTER PG 348) 1 .
