200 Reads



If you are interested in playing a collegiate sport then you need to get started making sure you meeting all the NCAA requirements on your end. At Elite Scholars Academy, our counseling and athletic department are amazing resourcing, however the greatest resource is the NCAA itself.

If you are serious about participating in college sports then create a profile by visiting the NCAA Eligibility Center Registration.  The next thing you can do is review the GuideForCollegeBoundStudentAthlete2017.  This document provides you with information about GPAs, SATs, ACTs, and other requirements to participating in collegiate athletics affiliated with the NCAA.

The next thing that every athlete must do is visit different universities/colleges athletic websites and click on their recruitment pages.  Fill out all information, including up-to-date SAT, ACT, GPA, and class rank information.  If you do not have that information, then schedule an appointment to get that information as soon as possible.  You can fill out as many recruitment pages as you wish.  This is the best way for a coach to get your information and to begin getting the recruitment process.

Last, is the on the court piece. There are talented athletes all over the country, however many not all of those kids have the academics and intangibles that collegiate coaches are looking for to take their programs to the next level.  Coaching is a career at the collegiate level and when a scholarship is issued out, there is a risk taken on the part of that athletic program.  Intangibles are something that is highly valued with every collegiate and professional organization.  Please take a look at the article Talent Gets You Noticed, Character Gets You Recruited.  How you carry yourself on the court/field/track, hallway, and classroom matters.  Parents and athletes, it is also important to maintain a good relationship with administration, teachers and coaches because collegiate coaches will ask questions before making any financial commitments.

Good luck to every student athlete at ESA looking to play at the athletics at the next level, and we will do everything possible to celebrate you and aid you in your quest to achieving your goals, and going to a college of your choice.
