Do you believe you have the potential to play a Division I or II sport? If so, you need to become familiar with the NCAA.
National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) is a non-profit
association that regulates athletes of 1,281 institutions, conferences,
organizations, and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges
and universities in the United States and Canada.
August 1973, the current three-division setup of Division I, Division II, and Division
III was adopted by the NCAA membership in a special convention. Under NCAA
rules, Division I and Division II schools can offer scholarships to athletes
for playing a sport. Division III schools may not offer any athletic
scholarships. Generally, larger schools compete in Division I and smaller
schools in II and III.
prospective college student needs to register with the NCAA through their clearinghouse.
Please note, there are very specific course and grade requirements to
participate in a Division I or Division II team. Approximately 25% of the core
courses at HHS are not NCAA
approved. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure he/she is taking the
correct courses in high school in order to meet the eligibility criteria for a
Division I or II institution. For more information, please contact the NCAA
