RECRUITING RESOURCES

If your athlete wants to pursue volleyball at the collegiate level they need to be proactive and prepare.

Here are a list of resources and guidelines to get them on the right track for their future.
The NCAA defines recruiting as "any solicitation of prospective student-athletes or their parents by an institutional staff member or representative of the institution's athletics interests for the purpose of securing a prospective student-athlete's enrollment and ultimate participation in the institution's intercollegiate athletics program."

Grade 10 - Sophomores
Register with the NCAA Eligibility Center at eligibilitycenter.org. If you fall behind on courses, do not take short cuts to catch up.  Ask your school counselor for help with finding approved courses or programs that you take. Click HERE for a list of NCAA approved core courses. 

Grade 11 - Juniors
Check with your school counselor to make sure you will graduate on time with the required number of NCAA approved courses. Take the ACT or SAT and submit your scores to the NCAA using the code 9999 at the beginning of the school year. At the end of the year, ask your counselor to send or upload your official transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center. (They do not accept faxed transcripts.)  If you took classes at more than one high school you will need to submit an official transcript for each school.  JUNIOR CHECKLIST
