In this project, survey based research on a relationship between Grand Valley State University Club Sports athletes and levels of self-motivation, time-management is done and analyzed for a correlation with grade point averages in comparison to their non-club sports peers. Club sports athletes may not seem like they would be any different from the average student but many clubs here at Grand Valley perform at an elite level, claiming national championships in sports as diverse as Dodgeball or Strength club. This study hopes to find if there is a difference in academic performance between students who are active through club sports and those who are not. The results indicate there is not a significant difference between the groups but this data is limited by the number of responses.
