Athletic Information Websites
If you plan to apply to a Division I or II National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) college or university and play a sport, you must apply to the NCAA Clearinghouse to establish your eligibility. To be eligible you must have at least a 2.0 GPA in certain core subjects, plus minimum scores on the ACT or SAT test. Courses used for core subjects may not be taken Credit/No Credit. See your counselor for NCAA forms.
There are many fee-based sites that offer to connect athletes and college coaches and athletic programs. Consumers need to investigate such sites thoroughly to make sure that they provide services that are commensurate with the costs or fees. For a list of some of these sites go to http://www.wisemantech.com/guidance/athleteinfo.htm
Be wary of organizations that will promise to find a student a sports scholarship. The only athletic divisions that give scholarships have very clear academic ACT/SAT guidelines. Work with your counselor to determine your eligibility and the process for registering with the NCAA. You will first register for the NCAA Clearinghouse after your junior year final grades are recorded.
