College Bound Athletes
Student-Athletes: If you are interested in attending a college or university and participating in their athletic program, it is your responsibility to make sure your courses meet NCAA Eligibility Requirements. See your counselor for more information regarding this matter.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) oversees 89 championships in 23 sports. There are more than 400,000 student-athletes competing in three divisions at over 1,000 college and universities within the NCAA.
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is the governing body for athletic programs at its nearly 300 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada.

Please contact your counselor if you still have questions about college bound athlete requirements and how they relate to the courses you take at SPHS and the actions you must take in order to be eligible to participate at the next level.
