Playing a college sport is a lot different from playing high school sport. Colleges expect more from their athletes and the competition is much tougher. The NCAA is the organization that oversees most college athletic programs. The NCAA is divided into three divisions: Division 1 and Division 2 colleges can offer scholarships. Division 3 colleges, usually smaller or private, do not.
Athletes who want to compete in a Division 1 or 2 colleges must have a minimum GPA in a specified number of core courses. They must also have the required ACT or SAT score. Students planning to play a sport in college need to take the ACT or SAT in the spring of their junior year.
Students may receive more information regarding eligibility requirements at:www.ncaa.org
. You should also contact the Reedley High Athletic Director, your Counselor, and/or your Coach.
Some colleges belong to the NAIA instead of the NCAA. To learn more about NAIA colleges and their eligibility requirements, go to www.naia.com
If you plan to participate in college sports, you need to register with the clearinghouse of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, depending on your sport, division or college. (Google: NCAA Eligibility Center)
