NCAA

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) serves as the athletics governing body for more than 1,300 colleges, universities, conferences and organizations.  The NCAA is committed to the student-athlete and to governing competition in a fair, safe, inclusive and sportsmanlike manner.  There are three divisions within the NCAA.  One of the differences among the three divisions is that colleges and universities in Divisions I and II may offer athletic scholarships, while Division III colleges and universities may not.  All students who are interested in competing in NCAA Division I or II athletics will need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center as having met the academic and amateur requirements.  We strongly encourage all student athletes who are interested in competing at the Division I or II level to meet with their counselor as soon as possible in their high school career to make sure that they are on track to meet all of the requirements.  To learn more about the NCAA and the NCAA Eligibility Centerlook over the links below:
