"Student-athletes hoping to continue participating in college should register with the NCAA Eligibility Center as early as early as possible and become familiar with the NCAA requirements for participation. Intercollegiate athletics is extremely competitive, with a small percentage of high school athletes going on to the college level (information provided by the NCAA)."
New documents for the 2017-18 school year are now available to download or order. These resources are intended for students, parents and coaches to learn more about the initial-eligibility requirements and help students to prepare to transition from high school to becoming an NCAA Division I or II student-athlete.
These new resources include:
