by NCAA Eligibility, 16 April 2014
|Share: || || |
Most of the community at the Tennis Recruiting website is interested in the competing at the college level. There are rules in place that govern academic eligibility and amateurism for incoming athletes, and high school students and their parents need to understand these rules.
The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all students who want to play sports at NCAA Division I or II institutions as freshmen. This article is aimed at showing you documents and presentations available at the NCAA Eligibility Center. These efforts are focused on the NCAA Division I requirements for college-bound student-athletes enrolling on or after August 1, 2016.
Please refer to www.eligibilitycenter.org or the new outreach site, www.2point3.org, for more information.
