What is the Athlete Awareness Seminar?

Athlete Awareness Seminar is for all in season student-athletes. All Student-Athletes meet four times during their athletic season. An athletic director, faculty member, guest speaker, or SWSC student leaders under guidance will facilitate the seminar to the student-athletes. This seminar helps student-athletes have a successful high school experience, discover resources offered, strengthen skills, broaden individual horizons, and move toward intellectual and individual independence. It supports academic success by introducing academic strategies, building active learning communities, and encouraging responsibility. Students are introduced to stress and time management techniques, diversity, and search for what it means to be a member of the District 204 community. Freshman Seminar draws on the strategic plan and mission statement of Joliet Township District 204 for its conceptual framework.
