In order to account for this large amount of disabled athletes, Wilson asks older students in middle school and high school to be helpers. To become a helper, the student must be in Student Council, or in a relating club.
However, because of my performance in gymnastics, I won a scholarship for the best military academy in Ecuador. For every medal and award representing my country and my school, I received a scholarship in which my tuition was covered during my 7 years in the military academy.

In high school swimming, in order to qualify for the state swim meet you have to be within the top 24 people ranked in the state after regionals. There is also only one division in swimming it is not like other sports where there are division 1a, 2a, or 3a.

At regionals, this is the one meet where most people wear fast skins, which is the long black suits that you will commonly Olympians wear at the Olympics.

College is a place for students to obtain a college degree and help them to get ahead on their “real world” careers. Athletic departments in college have become huge money incomes in the past ten years; college football and basketball are even shown on the television. This has resulted in many believing these athletes deserve to be paid for their contribution to the schools athletic income.

For some players a $20,000+ per year tuition is not enough, they want to be paid with more than just a scholarship.

The chaos and violence on the team, and the people who aren’t really caring will change.
