The Second Step Towards Being Recruited as a Scholastic-Athlete

The second step towards becoming a scholastic athlete is to get familiar with the NCAA eligibility center.  As as a Junior going into your Senior year any potential student athlete must be registered with the EC  so that collegiate institutions can legally register you as an amatuer athlete that can compete at the Division 1, & 2 level.   It sounds silly, but that is what it takes.  It is a very slow process because of the enormous number of PSA (potential student athletes) that register, so be prepared.  Registering also takes some time to enter all of the information correctly.  We suggest that you carve out some free time on the weekend to complete the online registration.  Do not spend school time trying to get this done.  When it is completed the center will continue to update the progress of your registration and send alerts as to what else may be needed.  This will result in you securing a registration number that can be used with all NCAA participating institutions.  Items that you should have handy before you begin would be:  Your High School Transcript, Your AAU or Club Affiliations, Your Current Grades, ACT or SAT Scores if you have taken them officially on a National Testing Day, and any information regarding outside classes, night school or disability information to start.  The website is www.ncaaeligibilitycenter.org.

The First Step Towards Being Recruited as a Scholastic-Athlete

The first step towards being recruited is being realistic about what your goals are and the belief in your ability to acheive those goals.  If you truly believe that you have what it takes academically and athletically to compete at the college level then you have crossed the first hurdle.  Assessing your skills versus older more experienced athletes is a great way to gauge your talent level.  It works for academics as well as athletics.  Freshmen year in high school is critical.  Talk to your counselors about enrolling in 1 or 2 Advanced Placement classes.  These classes carry more weight on your transcript and are looked upon more favorably than regular classes.  An AP course grade "B" carries 4 points on your transcript as apposed to the normal 3 points you earn.  If you excel or hold your own  against more mature competition and can handle honors or AP academic classes then you may be ready for the next level of athletic competition.  There are no guarantees so just be realistic.  Basketball franchise owners make more money than the pro basketball players.  So.....
