Making the adjustment to the next level from high school to the collegiate level can come with stress and negative emotions. The process of leaving familiar surroundings and family can take a toll on the student athlete. The development of a constructive coping processes is vital for the student athlete for opportunities of growth, maturation and a transition from childhood to young adulthood.
