College-Bound Athletes

Congratulations on taking the first steps at becoming a recruitable Student Athlete on a collegiate level!

Let's get you rewarded in hopefully the form of an athletic scholarship.

Here, we hope to simplify what may seem to be a complicated process.

The Road to NCAA Clearinghouse Eligibility:

* An "Official Visit" is a visit to a college campus in which any part is financed by the school. Coaches usually save invitations for their top recruits, since getting asked is a huge step on your recruiting journey. It’s important to prepare in advance for this crucial part of the recruiting process. Click here for more info.

*The NCAA Clearinghouse is the governing body of collegiate sports. You are ineligible (and transitively less recruitable) for any sport until you are deemed eligible by the NCAA Clearinghouse even if you are enrolled in the school already.
