Many student-athletes, however, reported that they practice at least 30 hours a week on average, with some sports reporting weekly practice commitments of more than 40 hours, according to a 2011 NCAA survey cited in the UNC lawsuit.
Practice: 2-3 hours – During the season practices will be shorter to save legs, but in the offseason coaches will push players to their limits with intense 2-3 hour practices.
So, you want to know what a day in the life of a College athlete looks like? Generally speaking, a College athlete will have three hours of classes per day on average. They'll also be at practice for two hours a day, with an hour either side for 'prehab' and rehab.
Squats, bench press, deadlifts, overhead presses, power cleans and snatches, rows, push-ups, pull-ups, maybe some single leg work. You need to sprint, jump high, and condition your body in a manner that prepares you to excel in your sport.
These measures are detailed in the 2019-2020 version of the Division I Manual under Bylaw 17.1. 7.1, which states: “A student-athlete's participation in countable athletically related activities shall be limited to a maximum of four hours per day and 20 hours per week.”
Division I college athletes spend a median of 32hrs per week in their sport including 40 hrs per week for baseball players and 42 hrs per week for football players during the season, respectively. Over 1/3/ of NCAA athletes say athletic time demands do not allow them to take desired classes.
So the actual time commitment ends up being much greater. According to the 2015 NCAA GOALS study, athletes in DI programs reported spending 34 hours per week on athletics activities in-season. Athletes in DII and DIII programs reported spending 32 and 28.5 hours per week, respectively, on athletics.
The NCAA requires coaches to give athletes at least one day off per week (which athletes are not required to take—they can still work out if the workout is considered voluntary).
Races vary from 8K to 10K at the NCAA championships. At a ranked D1 school male cross country runners will run 80 to 100 miles/week while female runners will run 60 to 90 miles/week in training.
It is considered to be the most competitive division with the best athletes and teams. There is a separation within Division 1 as well. You have the high major, mid-major, and lower D1 conferences. D2 has some pretty solid teams and athletes, but the schools tend to be a little smaller and have lower budgets.
Most student-athletes have morning classes followed by afternoon practice. They make sure to schedule time to eat, work out, study, and rest. Many travel on the weekends during season—though some sports travel less, it can be up to 10 trips for hockey and 17 trips for basketball that can run Wednesday to Sunday.
D1 players are generally faster and more athletic than D3 players. They are not necessarily larger, but they are faster and more athletic. And, on balance, D1 players are technically slightly better than their D3 counterparts.
NCAA Division II (D-II) is an intermediate-level division of competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). It offers an alternative to both the larger and better-funded Division I and to the scholarship-free environment offered in Division III.
NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52 During the Playing Season A student-athlete's participation in countable athletically related activities shall be limited to a maximum of four hours per day and 20 hours per week.
The 53rd, or median, runner ran 24:58. So for D1, between 24:25 and 25:30 is “normal”, and faster than 24:25 is “good”. If you're looking to compete at the collegiate level but don't think you can hit these marks, don't be discouraged.
To qualify for the most competitive D1 schools in the country you'll have to go sub 4:10 for boys and sub 4:50 for girls. To be eligible for a full scholarship at any of these schools, knock 5–7 seconds off each of the times that I listed. Best of luck.
The hardest major sport to play in college? For boys, it's wrestling (2.7 percent), then volleyball (3.3 percent) and basketball (3.5 percent). For girls, it's a tie between volleyball (3.9 percent) and basketball (3.9 percent).
D3 is the lowest division and it is comprised of many small private universities with fairly low budgets. These schools prides themselves on having “true” student-athletes.
Recent NCAA rule change eliminates college athletes' mandatory 1 day off per week, allowing colleges to require players to spend 24 days in a row in their sport.
Up to eight hours per week for weight training and conditioning. Up to six hours per week for walk-throughs, which may include the use of a football. Up to six hours per week for meetings, which may include film review, team meetings, position meetings, one-on-one meetings, etc.
