Want to Participate in College Athletics?

Those who intend to play sports in college have additional work to do. Some extra tasks are:

  1. register with the NCAA to be cleared for college play. See below for link. There is a fee.
  2. Locate colleges that have your sport here
  3. get noticed by filing a prospective athlete recruiting form on a college's athletics page. Here's an example from Salve Regina University.
  4. Get in contact with the college coach and arrange to visit their campus (through an admissions tour) and meet with the coach (student should call or email)
  5. arrange to have a full game taped
  6. prepare your own highlight reel and keep track of your accomplishments on your resume
Take some time to read the following resources and watch my 12 minute video on recruiting
"But the expectations of parents and athletes can differ sharply from the financial and cultural realities of college athletics, according to an analysis by The New York Times of previously undisclosed data from the National Collegiate Athletic Association and interviews with dozens of college and high school officials."
