Playing College Athletics • Many have questions about what to do to be able t to participate in college athletics • This can be confusing and hard to understand • The next slides give you a basic idea of what to look for if you are interested in possibly playing at the next level.
The next steps for a Student-Athlete • If you are considering playing sports beyond high school, it will be critical that you do focus on being a student first and then an athlete. • Here’s some basic information about what to expect for college athletics…
Registration with NCAA or NAIA • To participate in NCAA DI or DII or NAIA, you must register with that organization ideally starting in the junior year. • If you are considering this level of competition, please notify your high school counselor. • More information on this and links to these organizations’ websites at http://www.granvilleschools.org/PlayingaSportinCollege.aspx
For NCAA DI (DII is very similar) • 16 core course GPA (Math, English, Science, Social Studies & Foreign Language) • On a sliding scale with ACT/SAT score • The higher your GPA, the lower your test score needs to be • NEW! For class of 2016, core-course progression: • Must complete 10 core courses before seventh semester of high school (e.g., senior year). • Of the 10 core courses completed, seven must be in the area of English, math, or science. • These 10 core courses become “locked in” for the purpose of GPA calculation. • A repeat of one of the “locked in” courses will not be used if taken after the seventh semester (senior year) begins. • Minimum core course GPA of 2.00 for scholarship and 2.30 for participation in first year of college
Opportunities for Playing Sports in College • NCAA Division I & II—Scholarships available • NCAA Division III—No scholarships available specific to athletics • NAIA—Different association, scholarships available • NJCAA—Junior college association, scholarships available • Club sports—Competitive with travel, no scholarships • Intramural sports—Some sports more competitive than others, compete against other students on your campus only, no scholarships
Insurance You must have insurance to participate in athletics. If you need insurance see me or your coach for forms to purchase insurance. It can purchased for the season or for the full school year.
