Many high school athletes have the skills and ability to play in college but do not know what steps they need to take in order to give themselves the best chance to play at the next level. The following outline will provide the steps necessary to help determine the reality of playing in college.
If an athlete is considering a Division I or Division II school, the athlete needs to register with the NCAA Clearing House by the beginning of his/her junior year. This can be done by going to eligibilitycenter.org. This website will provide you with all the information you need to process with a Division I or Division II school.
The athlete should also be in contact with their high school college counselor at this time. If you are looking at Division III or NAIA schools, you should contact the schools in which you have an interest and discuss with them their requirements. Visit play.mynaia.org for more information.
