Best For: Higher education

Thousands of students across the country participate in school-sponsored athletics. Many of them and their families hope that they will continue to be involved at the college level, and for some in fact, this may be a necessity-both for college admission as well as a means by which to pay for college. What may not be as well known is that certain National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) rules play an important role in determining whether this dream is ever realized. Everyone understands that the NCAA and NAIA oversee college athletes, but may not understand that there are NCAA and NAIA rules which affect high school athletes starting in their freshman year of high school and determine whether upon graduation that student will even be eligible to participate in a college level athletic program. Please join Dr. Jeffrey Holmes as he explains NCAA and NAIA step-by-step so that you can feel confident that your athletic programs and athletes are on track to be eligible to participate in their sport when they get to college.
