Many college athletes find balancing time between academics and athletics difficult; thus, grades often decline during the competitive season. This study incorporated a one-day workshop that emphasized time management for twenty baseball student athletes. A pretest and posttest-design was used to study if the workshop altered student athlete GPA and lower overall stress levels. The results showed that there was not a significant difference between the student athletes’ grades due to the time management workshop. Additionally, there was no difference in overall stress levels. Future research might reexamine the use of frequent time-management workshops with more than one collegiate team and over a longer period of time.
