I'm taking a math class this summer at my local CC and doing summer training with my vball team during the dates for the USNA summer seminars. Both the head of the math department and my coach said I can not skip a week, regardless of the situation. It stinks, but I feel that there's nothing I can really do about it. Everyone I've talked to has talked on and on about how I need to attend a summer seminar. Will I still be considered competitive if I'm not a recruited athlete and I'm not going to NASS? One person told me that these factors together hurt my chances tremendously.
