Ball State student-athletes are taking part in a TAKE FLIGHT program, which was created to enhance the experience of the student-athletes at Ball State.

The TAKE FLIGHT program is a four year initiative which progresses Ball State student-athletes through personal and professional growth, leadership skills, campus programming and community outreach.  The program is piloted by two men's teams -- volleyball and swimming -- and two women's teams -- gymnastics and tennis.

A core committee of Mark Trumbo (student academic services), Karin Lee (associate athletics director), James Mitchell (Career Center) and Mitch Isaacs (Student Life) will meet to discuss programming, feedback, implementation and logistics of the TAKE FLIGHT program.  A subcommittee of each team, which includes the head coach and student-athlete representatives, will assist the program in meeting team specific needs and goals.

The program will focus on each year in school.  Freshmen will develop preparation, commitment and transition.  Sophomores will focus on career development, growth and commitment.  Juniors will learn hands-on experience, networking, graduation planning and commitment.  Seniors will concentrate on graduation, transition to professional life, leadership roles and commitment.
