Today, not long after having had my college volleyball scholarship confirmed, I broke my ankle after stepping on and tripping over a toy my baby sister had left out. No scholarship and no college whatsoever now. FML
scooterr14 tells us more :
im OP.and the break was bad enough that the scholarship was revoked. im not gonna be able to play volleyball for a few years due to ligament damage. im an outside hitter and i wont be able to jump. i could switch to libero but i wouldnt even manage to red shirt. my grades are not high enough for academic entrance

If your student loans are that bad I feel sorry for you. Mine are nowhere near that high. Depends on what school you go to and how much credit you have.

For many people, student loans are the answer.

Majority of school related sports teams require players to maintain a GPA minimum of a 3.0 or higher to remain active on their teams. I doubt her grades were the issue.

Maybe OP also had academic scholarships but held off for the time that she was injured so she could get full use of the free cash seeing as she wouldn't get the sports scholarship for the time she wasn't playing regardless of whether or not she took classes.

No. When they red shirt you they still expect you to work out with the team. Red shirting isn't used for recovery. It's used when you're not quite good enough yet and need a little improvement to be ready for college sports.


Not necessarily, I had a cousin who got a full wrestling scholarship for IU, and he messed up his back right before the season started. They red shirted him (thats the only reason I'd heard about it).

The ankle is a pretty bad break with so many nerves and ligaments in a small place. Even after the bones recover the nerve pain can persist for years afterwards.

Ankle injuries are HORRIBLE! I had a severe *sprain* when I was younger and thanks to a build up of scar tissue on the achilles tendon the pain can be crippling sometimes. I can't even begin to imagine how much worse it's going to be for OP because it was an actual break!

Hopefully you can get another scholarship OP, or at the very least a student loan (honestly, student loans are the only reason I'll be getting my degree next spring)!
