How we support our athletes
At College of the Rockies, we strive to go the extra mile to ensure your success as both a student and an athlete. As a member of an Avalanche Athletic team you will be required to have focus and discipline to ensure that academics are your number one priority.
To ensure academic success, student-athletes have access to a number of services which include:
- Priority registration;
- Academic Advisors to review your course selections and academic goals;
- Free access to peer tutoring;
- Learning success seminars.
In addition, the Manager of Athletics monitors academic progress mid-semester to identify any areas of concern and to intervene where necessary.
Our out-of-town students, in particular, may be concerned about access to physiotherapy, chiropractic and physician services. The Avalanche have developed an excellent relationship with local clinics. Through this relationship, student-athletes are given priority when medical attention is required. A complete overview of what we offer our student-athletes can be found in our Student-Athlete Handbook.
