How to get an athletic scholarship

In order to be considered for an athletic scholarship, you need to have exceptional

talent in a particular sport.  Remember, only 1 to 2 percent of high school athletes

qualify for athletic scholarships.  You need to evaluate your athletic ability to help identify

the collegiate level at which you will be most successful.  Also, it is in your best interest

to have a good relationship and communicate frequently with your current coach. College

coaches will contact your coach.  In order to be considered you should be involved in either

club sports or high school team sports.  You will need to decide:

•1.    Which level of competition you are eligible for?  NCAA Division I, II, III or NAIA;

•2.    Which schools (at that level) you are interested in attending?

The different divisions of sports have different requirements and different allocations

of athletic scholarship money.  You need to check with each coach, in each sport, in each

school, to discover what athletic positions are being recruited and what scholarship money

is available for you the year you will be applying.  In order to be recruited you need to

register with the NCAA Clearinghouse at the end of your junior year. 

require you to fill out the registration form online at

http://www.ncaaclearinghouse.net/ncaa/NCAA/common/index.html ,

send official transcripts, and your SAT or ACT test scores directly to the Clearinghouse

from ACT or SAT testing service.  There is a fee to process your registration
