Do you think you have what it takes to play your sport at the next level?
Our NCRF Student Athlete Program Team would love to help you with the tools to play at the next level. We can also provide guidance to make sure you meet NCAA Eligibility Center requirements, and our College Advising Team can help you with your academic plans and goals. Our mission is to engage, empower, and educate student athletes.
To engage students in camps, showcases and clinics and other opportunities to help them develop into their full self as a well-rounded athlete
To student athletes to understand the importance of building a healthy mind, body and spirit
To educate all student athletes on what it takes step-by-step to get recruited to play at the next level
EDUCATION IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR SPORT!
There are two fundamental areas that all student athletes must focus on:
- Preparation on the field/ court
In terms of academics, it is a must that the student athlete know the NCAA requirements.
All students must strive for academic excellence in the classroom. The higher the Grade Point Average (GPA) in your core classes, i.e. English, Math, Science, History, the more opportunities you create for yourself to participate in collegiate athletics.
Even if the SAT/ACT may be waived at some colleges, it is still a good idea to take the test. You don’t want to be the one who gets counted out because you didn’t take the test. Preparation is a must. We recommend you take some preparatory classes before taking the SAT or ACT. There is free SAT and ACT prep on www.collegeboard.org and www.act.org. We recommend you take both tests. Some students score higher on one test versus the other test, and colleges accept both tests. This gives you the opportunity to submit your best score. Also, remember you are allowed to take the tests more than once so you can produce your best scores, and we recommend you take them more than once.
When it comes to on the playing field or on the floor, “There is no substitution for a fundamentally sound player”. We recommend that potential student athletes attend skill camps that are specific to their particular sport and to their playing position.
