Do you think you can compete at the next level?
Student-athletes looking to compete at the collegiate level cannot rely on their athletic ability alone to catch the attention of college coaches. A successful recruiting process requires student-athletes to proactively market themselves, and an NCSA recruiting profile is a great way to get started.

Learn the best approach for contacting college coaches
Student-athletes wondering how to find athletic scholarships should start by contacting college coaches. As athletes build relationships with coaches, they will be able to discuss their athletic resume and determine what opportunities for college athletic scholarships are available. Remember, if you find that you are not a contender for an athletic scholarship or you are looking to attend an NCAA Division 3 school, there are merit-based scholarships for athletes with good grades.
