NCAA Eligibility Center
If you are looking to compete at either the NCAA Division 1 or Division 2 levels, signing up for the eligibility center is mandatory. The NCAA recognizes that the recruiting process starts early and recommends Student-Athletes to sign up at the beginning of their sophomore year. Signing up for the NCAA Eligibility Center doesn't guarantee you will be recruited by a school at those levels, but it is mandatory for the NCAA to make sure you are academically qualified to participate. It is important to work side by side with your counselor at school to make sure you are taking the required core courses the NCAA needs. Filling this out correctly is very important for your recruiting success.

NAIA Eligibility Center
Just as important as the NCAA eligibility center you will need to sign up for the NAIA Eligibility center. If you are looking to compete at an NAIA School the Eligibility Center registration is required to make sure you are academically qualified to participate at the NAIA Level. Once registered the NAIA has a to-do list to make sure you are always on task to compete at a NAIA school. Enrolling for the Eligibility Center doesn't guarantee you will be recruited but is a vital step in the eligibility process. If you are unsure if you want to play your sport at the NAIA level contact your scouting team to get more information on the NAIA.

NCAA Guide For The College-Bound Student-Athlete
Playing college sports can be a very overwhelming process. The NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete gives some great information about the basics of the process. It includes answers for Student-Athletes and parents navigating the initial eligibility process. It gives additional information on what Core Courses students will have to take during High School, recruiting calendars, and worksheets for Division 1 and Division 2. Although reading the Guide can help you with some technical dates and other details it isn't a full game plan on how to get recruited. Using the details in this Guide is the start to building a recruiting game plan that works. If you would like more information on your personal recruiting game plan or the NCAA Guide please contact your scouting team.
