At Chabot College in the Spring there are plenty of sports for the avid athlete. Whether you like to play a team sport, or not there is something for you.
No matter what sports team you try out for it will require a lot of hard work. Most of the teams work out a minimum of four days a week, practicing in the morning and the afternoon.
Additionally athletes are held to a high standard to remain active on the team. According to the Chabot College website athletes must maintain a 2.0 G.P.A. and be registered in “12 units of which 9 count toward the associate degree, remediation, transfer and/or certification during your season of participation.”
The spring sports are men’s baseball, woman’s softball, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s golf, and men’s and women’s track & field.
There are a lot of athletes that are on a scholarship to play at our college, but some of the athletes who try out for the team are also walk on students.
Some of these walk on students don’t know how to get in contact with the coaches or how the programs are run.
One way to find out more about the sport your interested in is to contact the coach of the team or speak to a counselor.
The head coach of men’s baseball, Steve Friend, has shared some information on the requirements on how to make the team.
“It’s all about your athleticism, your talent, and your intangibilities, meaning do you have any skills, your ability to play the game, and your mental toughness, work ethics, commitment and resiliency.”
Mr. Friend has stated “We actively recruit approximately 20-30 local student athletes each year from district area High Schools and you have to be a pretty good player.”
Hard work is the key to practice making perfect. One way to make the team on any spring sport, is to take a summer class of the sport you’re interested in so the coach can get familiar with you.
