Transcript of Athletic Recruitment and Eligibility

For the NCAA and NJCAA
Athletic Recruitment and Eligibility
NCAA - National Collegiate Athletic Association
NAIA - National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics
Ivy League & Patriot League
NJCAA - National Junior College Athletic Associations
CCCAA- California Community Colleges
NWAACC- Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges
There are six different organizations that offer athletics in college
National Collegiate Athletic Association
The NCAA membership includes:
326 active Division I members;
281 active Division II members; and
421 active Division III members.
One of the differences among the three divisions is that colleges and universities in Divisions I and II may offer athletics scholarships
Division III colleges and universities may not.
NCAA
Division I member institutions have to sponsor at least seven sports for men and seven for women (or six for men and eight for women) with two team sports for each gender. Each playing season has to be represented by each gender as well.
Division I teams can be fully funded programs. For example a baseball team that is fully-funded will have 15 full scholarships (books, tuition, room & board)
Division I
347 Member Schools
Division II is an intermediate-level division of competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. It offers an alternative to both the highly competitive (and highly expensive) level of intercollegiate sports offered in NCAA Division I and to the non-scholarship level offered in Division III.
Division II programs are partially funded. For example baseball has 9 full scholarships at the DII level.
Division II
302 Member schools
Arizona State, University of Arizona,Northern Arizona University
Grand Canyon University, Concordia University
Division III
Division III institutions have to sponsor at least five sports for men and five for women, with two team sports for each gender, and each playing season represented by each gender. There are minimum contest and participant minimums for each sport.
Division III athletics features student-athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletic ability. No athletic scholarships are available.
As you explore opportunities to PlayNAIA you will discover a community of nearly 300
member colleges and universities, 60,000 student-athletes and an environment that
award more than $450 million in financial aid each year, compete for 23 national championships in 13 sports and offer a wide selection of academic and athletic programs
focuses on athletic participation as one part of the total education process. Our members

Be honest.

Amateurism
Myth # 1
I will get a full ride to play my sport!

Very rarely does a college offer a "full ride" to a student athlete. Most of the time the scholarship is for a percentage of the total cost of the education. Including: tuition, books, fees, room & board. The average scholarship for a Maricopa student athlete is $325.00 per semester.
Truths vs. Myths
Myth # 2

My GPA does not matter if I'm a great athlete. I will still get a scholarship to play.

The NCAA, NAIA, and every individual institution have minimum admissions requirements. These requirements need to be met in order for a student to be admitted into the university/college and allowed to play collegiate athletics. The NJCAA does not have initial high school GPA requirements.
Truths vs. Myths
Myth #3

If I'm a great athlete, coaches will find me. I don't need to go out and market myself.

There are millions of student athletes that play your particular sport across the world. Coaches have limited recruiting budgets and time to recruit student-athletes. Unless a student-athlete contacts the coach and brings attention to them self it is rare for a coach to stumble upon an athlete to recruit.
Truths vs Myths
Myth #4

My Scholarship is for four years.

Athletic Scholarships are year to year. It is true that you cannot lose an athletic scholarship during the year that it is signed for due to lack of athletic performance, but grant in aids (scholarships) and annual. If you do poorly one year the coach does not need to offer you a scholarship for the next year. Even if you do great, a coach can change your scholarship year to year based on need and funding.
Truths vs. Myths

Prize money won
Play with professionals
