Prospective Collegiate Student Athletes
If you aspire to compete in a college sport, here is some information to help you get there:
You need to begin planning for this path in your freshman year of high school.
Make sure that you speak to your school counselor and let him/her know that you are interested in pursuing a sport in college, so that they help to ensure you take everything you need to be eligible to enter a four year program directly after high school graduation. This way, they can be sure to enroll you in the appropriate classes throughout your high school career, as not all courses are accepted by NCIA and NAIA.
In order to be eligible to participate in recruiting by college coaches, you must sign up at either the NCAA or NAIA Eligibility Center. Please talk to your coach and see where they would recommend you sign up.
