In order to play sports in college, you must be registered and cleared through the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). This website provides necessary information: www.ncaaclearinghouse.org.
NCAA registration occurs in your junior year; however, to participate in college athletics, the decisions you make as early as ninth grade determine your eligibility. Classes you take throughout high school must be NCAA approved. Your counselor can assist you in this process.
Any student planning to participate in college athletics should communicate this with his/her coach and school counselor. The Athletic Director is also available as a resource.
