Really, what type of high school athlete are you?

Back when I was a high school student athlete, I used to love multiple-choice quizzes. It gave you an opportunity to use deductive reasoning to try to figure out which answer would make the most sense to select.

And if it were only a choice between 4 answers, for example, between A, B, C or D, you would have a 25% chance of either guessing or answering the question correctly.

The answer would literally be staring you right in your face.

What if we took the same concept of a multiple choice survey and coupled it with questions about your life as a high school student athlete?

Questions that revolve around situations such as:

  • How would you handle yourself in social situations, like in a huddle or during your downtime?
  • What decisions will you make during your study time?
  • What is your mindset heading into a key game?
  • What is the first thing you do when you get home?

 

The Classlete Survey

Introducing the Classlete Survey, a 15-part multiple question survey that addresses key factors about the life of a high school student athlete.

 

Here are 3 sample questions from the Classlete Survey:

 

  1. When you study for a big test or exam, you do one of the following:

A) Create study notes to prep for every possible question on
the test.

B) Have caffeine or an energy drink and prep for a long night of cramming.

C) Share and compare study notes with your teammates and classmates.

D) Not study, wing it and just choose or write the best sounding answers.

 

  1. When at practice, the following best represents how you feel:

A) You can’t wait for it to end so you can talk to your girlfriend/boyfriend or friends.

B) Not give it your all and save your energy for a real game.

C) Glad you did your homework already and it’s out of the way.

D) Take it as seriously as a real game and hone your skills.

 

  1. What type of activity do you do when you first get home?

A) Play video games.

B) Eat the whole house down and devour your whole fridge

C) Complete your homework so it is out of the way

D) Check your social media feeds or talk on the phone with your friends or girlfriend/boyfriend.

 

And the cool thing about it is, after completing your Classlete Survey, your answers will determine your Classlete Type (more on this below).

Your Classlete Type will be displayed on your Classlete Sports Card for all to see, particularly when you share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for your friends to see.

Also, a star rating system of how you score on your Athletics, Academics and Social Life will be displayed on the Classlete Sports Card. This will be based on how you fill out your user profile and how you answer our fun 15-part multiple question Classlete Survey.

**Note – this is not meant to be scientific or to be taken seriously. This is just a fun way of classifying you as a high school student athlete in an entertaining way.

 

Here are the descriptions of each Classlete Type

 

  1. The Confident Athlete

Swagger and physical dominance characterize this type of high school student athlete. But is having too much confidence in your athletic abilities a good thing?

  1. The Social Athlete

Everybody knows this person. Who do you call upon to pick up the spirits of your team during a blowout loss or to arrange the best community or social gathering of the year? But is being popular enough when it comes down to crunch time in a game or to buckle down on your academics?

  • Socially influential and viewed as a likable charismatic personality.
