Planning for College as a Student Athlete
Many student-athletes prepare to play sports at the college level their entire lives; knowing the process to play after high school is key.
The NCAA has a website designed to help guide parents, players, schools, counselors and coaches through the process.
As noted on the NCAA website, "Participating in college sports provides opportunities to learn, compete and succeed. Student-athletes receive top-notch academic support, quality medical care and regular access to outstanding coaching, facilities and equipment. Student-athletes as a group graduate at higher rates than their peers in the general student body and feel better prepared for life after college."
