Who should take an away rotation? Anyone who: is applying for a competitive position. Want to relocate to a certain area of the country. Wants to play at a certain college.
Many college coaches like to see their athletes to be a part of a program for about six months or more, in order to develop the athletic scholarship that they will need in order to stay. But you can always transfer during this time. You don't have to take your current job when you transfer.
Moving to a new place is a great time to relocate. You'll have new friends and different experiences. Even if you have to travel for three or four hours a day, you will feel so much better. Plus you'll be able to get into better shape, if you are serious about your athletic career.
If you have to take an away, and then you have to go back to school to get a different job, it can take a lot of time out of your life. It will also create some distance from your old teammates. However, many times there is still plenty going on in the college athletic program, and your old teammates may want to catch up on things. You may also find that you have to give up a few dates due to your busy schedule. So, consider this when you're taking an away. Don't be afraid to take it.
Another big advantage to moving away from home is that you'll have more privacy. Most of your college friends probably don't want to meet with you during the day, so going to an off-campus apartment for a while is a good idea. The same applies if you are going to be away from home. A few days in an apartment without anyone else there will give you a nice break from being around people. And, most of all, it will give you more space to be creative.
Finally, if you have a job that doesn't allow you to be with anyone else, or if you have to be in the dorms, going away for a couple of weeks is a good way to go. You'll get to see new places, meet new people and just relax from being alone.
When choosing a college to go away to, there are many things to think about. However, one of the most important decisions you'll have to make is whether or not to move to a new area of the country. Not only will you benefit from having a new team and a new experience, but you'll also benefit by having a new experience.
Moving to a new area, or even going away to attend a different university, can make you a better athlete and person. If you decide that you want to do it, there are lots of great options available.
