Protecting the Future of Student Athletes in South Dakota
Being a student athlete in South Dakota requires hard work, dedication, and discipline. It is no secret that student athletes put their blood, sweat, and tears into their sport and academics. Unfortunately, it is troubling when they do not receive due process or independent support when charged with a disciplinary violation such as academic misconduct or Title IX sexual misconduct, or are facing an administrative issue at their school or with a conference or sports governing body.
Coaches, athletic directors, and NCAA administrators often prioritize their programs’ interests over those of student athletes. Hence why it’s paramount for a student-athlete to have an experienced attorney advocate guide them when facing investigation or administrative proceedings at their South Dakota school or before a sport’s governing body.
Issues Unique to Student Athletes
Student athletes often face unique challenges like sports-related dismissals or suspensions, eligibility issues, hardship and scholarship disputes, transfer disputes NCAA administrative appeals, injuries resulting in concussions or sports litigation. Therefore, it is necessary to be cautious while discussing any issues regarding a student-athlete with the school administration. You must also understand your rights and responsibilities as a student-athlete. An experienced attorney advisor will level the playing field for you and should get involved in the process as early as possible.
