1 College Recruiting Info We, as a club, coach and staff pride ourselves for what we are able to do to help our players attain their collegiate goals. In recent years, with the growth of youth soccer across the U.S., it is more competitive than ever to play collegiate soccer. A large part of the planning and execution historically falls upon the family. Recruiting Education The recruitment process can be an overwhelming task if you are not prepared. Parents and student-athletes struggle each year with the notion of how to earn a college scholarship. Parents and athletes should take time to be educated as they venture through the recruiting process. Recruiting Tips There is more to getting an athletic scholarship than just being a good student-athlete. Recruits need to be knowledgeable on the educational topics knowing the NCAA rules and regulations, how to apply for financial aid, college scholarship stats, and what to do on official visits will help while navigating the college recruiting process. The following information is dedicated to educating parents and athletes as they venture through the recruiting process.
2 NCAA Eligibility Do you know in order to play college sports you need to meet certain requirements set forth by the NCAA? Make sure you are taking the right approach to ensure your eligibility. Every year recruits miss out on opportunities because they fail to meet the academic standards. Don t let this happen to you! The NCAA Eligibility Center is in place to make sure athletes and parents have an easier time understanding and navigating the eligibility steps that the NCAA requires. Below you will see a list of some of the most common questions asked regarding the NCAA Eligibility Center. NCAA Eligibility Info The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all college-bound student-athletes who wish to compete in NCAA Division I or Division II athletics. Don t jeopardize your chance to play college athletics, review this section!
3 NCAA Eligibility Center FAQ What you need to know about the NCAA Eligibility Center These are common questions that many athletes and parents have during the college recruiting process when it comes to the Eligibility Center. When do I have to register with the Eligibility Center? Register at the beginning of your junior year of high school. This will allow college coaches to have the most up-to-date information about you. When can I register? You need to have your high school send your transcripts to the eligibility center after you have completed your junior year (or six semesters). What is involved with the registration process? There are a series of steps to follow when completing the registration. The eligibility center does an excellent job walking you through the process. Some information you will need to have is: Social Security Number Date of birth Sports you plan on participating in Your high school address High school code number (get your code number from your counselor) High School transcripts and SAT & ACT scores Do I send them my ACT and SAT scores? All SAT and ACT test scores must be reported directly from the testing agency. When you register for the SAT or ACT put the code of 9999 to ensure your test scores get sent to the eligibility center. ACT and SAT scores are not accepted by the eligibility center if sent on your high school transcripts.
4 How much does it cost? There is a processing fee of $70 ($120 for international students). There is a possibility for a waiver in which you don t have to pay the processing fee. In order to be eligible to waive the registration fee, you must have been granted a waiver for the ACT or SAT fee. If you weren t then you can t apply to have your eligibility registration fee waived. What are the core courses that I need to become eligible? Core courses are a designated set of high school classes that must be completed to become eligible. They include the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Natural/Physical Science, Social Science, Foreign Language, non-doctrinal Religion or Philosophy. These courses have to meet your high schools standard academic level, and have to be completed no later than your high school graduation date. You can get a list of courses from your high school counselor or from our list below. Can I use a core course taken after I graduated? If you are enrolled in the NCAA Division I you can use only those courses completed in grades 9 through 12. An exception to the rule is when a student-athlete graduates on time (in eight semesters), they can use one core course completed in the summer or academic year after graduation. The course cannot be completed later than that academic year following the student-athlete s graduation date. The course can be completed at a location other than your high school. If you are enrolling in Division II you can use any courses that you complete prior to the start of your college career. How is my GPA figured to determine my eligibility status? Core course GPA is calculated differently than your high school GPA. The scale is on an A, B, C, D evaluation with an A worth 4.00, a B worth 3.00, a C worth 2.00, and a D worth The eligibility center does not use plus or minuses (+, -) and the lowest grade you can earn is a D. The eligibility center uses a scale to measure the length of a class, and its value to your overall GPA. A trimester course is worth.33 units, a semester course is worth.5 units, and a year-long course is worth 1.0 units. Only your best grades from the core courses will be used. You can include other core course scores if they improve your overall GPA. Here is an example for you to calculate your GPA: An A in a semester course: 4 x.5 = 2 quality points and.5 credits earned A B in a year course: 3 x 1 = 3 quality point and 1 credits earned A C in a trimester course: 2 x.33 =.66 quality points and.33 credits earned A B in a semester course: 3 x.5 = 1.5 quality points and.5 credits earned The next step is to calculate your grade point average. Add up your quality points and divide them by the amount of credits you have earned. For this example it would be: 7.16 quality points ( ) divided by 2.33 credits earn ( ) for a GPA of 3.07
5 Core Course RULE CHANGE! Starting on August 1st, 2016 Division I will require 10 core courses to be completed prior to the seventh semester. Seven of the ten must be a combination of Mathematics, English, or Natural or Physical Science that meet the distribution list below. These ten courses get locked in at the start of the seventh semester and cannot be retaken for grade improvement. What is the sliding scale that Division I uses? It is a scale that allows for you to have lower test scores but a higher GPA and vice versa to qualify for your academic eligibility. If your GPA is very high than your ACT and SAT test scores can be relatively low and you can still be eligible. You need to make sure you fall within this scale provided by the NCAA. What is the sum score that is mentioned when determining my ACT or SAT scores? You are allowed to take both tests more than once. The NCAA will let you take the best scores from each test and combine them to make the best possible sum of scores. For example: if you took the SAT in January and got 420 Math and 380 Verbal that gives you a total of 800. The next time you take the test in May you get a 350 Math and a 490 Verbal than your score is 840. However, with the sum score formula you can combine the best scores from both tests to get a 420 Math and a 490 Verbal for a sum score of 910. How come there is no talk about Division III and the Eligibility Center? NCAA Division III does not use the Eligibility Center. Any questions on academic requirements need to be directed to that college institution.

14 NCAA Recruiting Terms Breaking Down the NCAA Recruiting Terms As you start getting information from colleges you will need to know why coaches can and cannot do certain things. The NCAA has rules in place that limit a college recruiter s exposure to high school athletes. Knowing what the NCAA recruiting terms mean will help you understand recruiting process. Contact A contact is classified as a face-to-face encounter between a college coach and the student athlete (or their legal guardians or relatives) where more than a greeting occurs. Anything beyond a hello is considered a contact. Another form of contact occurs when a college coach has any contact with you or your legal guardians at your high school, or any other location where you are competing or practicing. Contact Period College coaches are allowed to have in-person contact with you or your legal guardians. This period means coaches can watch you compete anywhere, and the coach can write and make telephone calls. Dead Period The college coach cannot make in-person contact with you or your legal guardians. This prevents the coach from making any evaluations of you whatsoever. However, the coach can make telephone calls to you or your legal guardians. Evaluation This is the process where a coach watches you compete in a game or practice, and makes note on your athletic abilities. Evaluation Period It is permissible for the college coach to evaluate your playing abilities at your high school or any other place where you are competing. During this period the coach cannot have off campus in-person contact with you or your legal guardians. The coach can still make telephone calls to you or your legal guardians, and you are allowed to make campus visits during this period.
15 Quiet Period During this time a college coach cannot watch you compete at any location. It is allowed for the college coach to make in-person contact with you or your legal guardians if it occurs on the coach s campus. The coach can still make telephone calls to you or your legal guardians, and you can make visits to college campuses during this time. Telephone Call An electronically transmitted voice exchange is considered a phone call. That includes videoconferencing and videophones. s and faxes are not considered a phone call. Official Visit Any visit to a college that is paid for by that university. You and/or your legal guardians will have your transportation to and from the college paid for. Also paid for by the college will be your room, meals (three per day), and entertainment expenses. Generally you will receive three free passes to that college s home game the weekend you are in town. Unofficial Visit Anytime you or your legal guardians visit a college campus that is funded by you. You can take as many unofficial visits as you would like. During dead periods you cannot speak to any of the coaches while visiting the campus. Three free tickets to a home game is the only thing a coach can give you during an unofficial visit.
16 NAIA Recruiting Information The NAIA recruiting information is less cumbersome, with few restrictions on the contact between a student-athlete and a college coach. This levels the playing field for NAIA institutions to compete against NCAA schools. The NAIA has around 300 colleges and universities. The appeal that the NAIA has to offer is their smaller class sizes and tight knit campus communities, the ability to transfer and not lose any eligibility, there are fewer recruiting rules and restrictions, and you have the opportunity to compete for championships. Not everyone has the ability or the academics to play NCAA sports. The NAIA is a terrific chance for any student athlete looking to earn a scholarship. Each NAIA institution will have their own academic requirements that you must meet, and the NAIA association has an overview of recruiting rules and requirements that student-athletes must meet. Student-athletes must meet 2 of the 3 requirements below in order to be eligible for the NAIA: 1. Achieve a minimum of 18 on the ACT or 860 on the SAT. 2. Achieve a minimum overall high school GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. 3. Graduate in the top half of your graduating class.
17 If you are looking to play college athletics at the NAIA level, you must follow these steps: 1. Register with the NAIA Eligibility Center and pay the $70 fee ($120 for int l students). 2. Submit your info: contact info, address, high school attended, sport(s) played. 3. Insert the code: 9876 when taking the ACT and/or SAT on the lists of places test scores should be sent. 4. Have your guidance counselor send your official transcripts to the NAIA Eligibility Center NAIA Eligibility Center Transcripts P.O. Box Kansas City, MO *The NAIA and NCAA are two separate associations, with different rules and eligibility process. Your eligibility with the NCAA is separate from your eligibility with the NAIA. Quick Facts about the NAIA 1. The NAIA sponsors 13 sports and determines 23 national championships ,000 student athletes compete at NAIA member schools. 3. There are nearly 300 NAIA colleges and universities. 4. NAIA schools award more than $500 million in financial aid each year. Does The NAIA have national letters of intent? As an association, the NAIA does not have a letter of intent program in which students sign a binding agreement to participate in athletics at a particular institution. Student-athletes may sign letters of intent with an individual NAIA school, however, they aren t obligated to attend that institution. That said, some NAIA conferences require their member schools to recognize letters of intent that are signed with other institutions within the conference. Please check with your prospective school to see if any conference programs apply. What are the amount of scholarships awarded at the NAIA level? Each sport has scholarship limits set by the NAIA, but those scholarships can be dispensed as partial awards to spread financial aid around among athletes. Each sport has an overall limit on the amount of financial aid it can award as full or partial. For example, the overall limit in Track & Field is 12. Track & Field scholarships can be awarded to any number of students (for example, 2 full scholarship, 9 half awards and 24 quarter awards) as long as the combined total does not exceed 12.The total amount of aid that can be given to varsity athletes in each Men s/women s Soccer = 12 scholarships
18 Junior College Recruiting Information Going the junior college route gives you the opportunity to improve your athletic skills while earning credits toward a degree. You can transfer after two years, and still have two years of playing eligibility. Many coaches are now looking for junior college prospects to come in and compete right away. The NJCAA serves as the national governing body for two-year college athletics in the United States and is the nation s second-largest national intercollegiate sports organization (second to the NCAA). Each year nearly 60,000 student-athletes from 525 member colleges compete in 28 different sports. What are the eligibility requirements for junior college? Every student must be a high school graduate with an academic diploma, general education diploma or a State Department of Education approved high school equivalency test. Each institution is different when it comes to academic eligibility requirements. It is recommended that each potential student-athlete discuss their athletic eligibility with the specific college.
19 What are the junior college recruiting rules? No institution shall permit an athlete to be solicited to attend by the promise of a gift or inducement other than an athletic scholarship. An institution may pay for one visit to its campus by direct route, for a stay not to exceed two days and two nights. The paid visit must be limited to the campus and local community where the college is located. A student-athlete must have completed his/her junior year in high school in order to receive an official recruiting visit by a member NJCAA college. While recruiting a potential athlete on campus, a college representative may purchase meals for the athlete. The value of the meals may not exceed the amount provided to a college employee while traveling on college business. Does the NJCAA have National Letter of Intents? The NJCAA Letter of Intent is used to commit an individual to a specific institution for a period of one academic year. The form is only valid for NJCAA member colleges and has no jurisdiction over NCAA or NAIA colleges. The student may not, however, sign a NJCAA Letter of Intent with two NJCAA colleges. If a student signs with two NJCAA colleges, that student will become immediately ineligible to compete in NJCAA competition for the next academic year in any sport. What type of scholarship funds can NJCAA schools offer? Each institution belonging to the NJCAA can choose to compete on the Division I, II or III level in designated sports. Division I colleges may offer full athletic scholarships Division II colleges are limited to awarding tuition, fees, books and up to $250 in course required supplies Division III institutions may provide no athletically related financial assistance. What sports are offered by the NJCAA? The NJCAA provides opportunities for participation, including National Championships, for studentathletes in the both Men and Women s Soccer.
20 ACT and SAT Information for Athletic Scholarships Any high school athlete looking to play college sports must take the ACT and/or SAT. Receiving high test scores will increase a recruit s chances of an athletic and/or academic scholarship. What athletes need to know about the SAT The SAT is designed to assess your academic readiness for college. Go to and register to take the SAT. Colleges require that you take the SAT Reasoning Test. You may also be interested in the SAT Subject Test as they offer you additional opportunity to show college what you know and what you know you can do. Many colleges use the SAT Subject Tests for admission, for course placement, and to advise students about course selection. Some colleges specify the SAT Subject Tests that they require for admission or placement; other allow applicants to choose which tests to take. The SAT test on reading (reading passages and sentence completions), writing (short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and improving grammar and usage) and math (questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability) that you learn in school and that are critical for success in college and beyond. It gives both you and colleges a sense of how you ll be able to apply the thinking, writing and study skills required for college course work. The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses and learn more about your academic strengths. The SAT tests are offered several times a year. Most students take the SAT for the first time during the spring of their junior year and a second time during the fall of their senior year. It is a good idea to practice before taking your SAT. The College Board website has free practice tests as well as study guides available to purchase. For more help visit: CollegeBoard.org/Practice IMPORTANT: On the day of the SAT you will have to have an admission ticket to write your SAT. Print this out from the College Board website when you register. Bring it to the testing center where you will be taking your SAT.
21 IMPORTANT: Your SAT scores have to be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center. Use code 9999 when filling out your form so they get sent there. What athletes need to know about the ACT The ACT test assesses high school students general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. Go to and register to take the ACT. The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. The ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete, including a short break (or just over four hours if you are taking the ACT plus Writing). The main four tests are scored individually on a scale of 1-36, and a composite score is provided which is the whole number average of the four scores. The ACT is administered on six test dates within the United States each year, and you cannot take the ACT more than 12 times. Basic registration to take the ACT cost $36.50 For practice visit the ACT Test Prep Center : Click Here IMPORTANT: Your ACT scores have to be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center. Use code 9999 when filling out your form so they get sent there. IMPORTANT: After registering print your admission ticket. You will need your admission ticket, and your Personal ID to be allowed to take the test. Soccer Scholarship Stats It s important for high school athletes to know how many athletic scholarships are available for their sport. Not every athlete is going to play division I athletics; therefore, it is important to know what college levels offer a scholarship opportunity.
22 Soccer Scholarship Info Number of schools offering soccer scholarships Men s Soccer: NCAA Division I = 204 NCAA Division II = 181 NCAA Division III = 407 (however D3 schools don t offer athletic scholarships) NAIA = 218 Junior College = 221 Women s Soccer: NCAA Division I = 322 NCAA Division II = 228 NCAA Division III = 428 (however D3 schools don t offer athletic scholarships) NAIA = 219 Junior College = 186 Number of available soccer scholarships (per school) at each level Men s Soccer: NCAA Division I = 9.9 NCAA Division II = 9 NCAA Division III = 0 (however D3 schools don t offer athletic scholarships) NAIA = 12 Junior College = 18 Women s Soccer: NCAA Division I = 14 NCAA Division II = 9.9 NCAA Division III = 0 (however D3 schools don t offer athletic scholarships) NAIA = 12 Junior College = 18
23 College Financial Aid Not every high school athlete will receive an athletic scholarship. Having a financial backup plan for college is a great idea. There are plenty of other options available to help pay for your education. Financial aid is intended to make up the difference between what your family can afford to pay and what college costs. The majority of full-time students currently enrolled in college receive some type of financial aid to help pay college costs.
