Juniors and Seniors below you will find steps needed to play at the next level. Academically and Athletically. 1st thing you do is register and take the SAT or ACT. I have included NCAA and NAIA rules and websites below. Please contact Coach Martin with any questions.
Taking the ACT and/or SAT...NOT pre-SAT.
We encourage all of our athletes to take SAT or ACT as early as Freshman year. You can mismatch your scores. So taking the tests as early as possible will maximize your scores.
ACT Registration: http://www.actstudent.org/regist/
SAT Registration: https://sat.collegeboard.org/register
Every athlete in High School looking to play at the next level (DI, DI AA or DII) will need to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse
This will allow College Coaches to speak with athletes once they receive their Clearinghouse #s.
The same process needs to be done to play in the NAIA
Highlight videos and/or Game film. This should be a priority.
Middle School - skill videos are good as well. Meaning run routes, catch, cut, sprint, stance, get offs, etc. Capture all this and make a video.
High School athletes need a 5 minute highlight video along with one (1) solid game film.

The College Board
In addition to a variety of SAT-related services, The College Board site also has more general information and tools for college-bound students looking for college information. This site can get swamped at times by students looking for test-specific information.
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA on the web)
This is an absolute necessity for anyone looking for financial aid. The FAFSA is a cost-free application from the U.S. Department of Education. The FAFSA application is required in order to qualify a student for various kinds of Federally subsidized aid. Most student loans and many other grants require the FAFSA. Many schools also use it to determine the level of financial need even for aid that is not Federally subsidized.
US Department of Education Student information site
This site has a lot of good information about various kinds of student aid. It also lists all the Federally subsidized aid that a student has received and gives information about their dates, interest rates and payoff amounts. To access that information requires registration and an access PIN.
This is a large website with a wide variety of information and links to a large number of other financial aid sites.
This site is associated with Monster.com and FinAid. It takes information from you and then acts as a matchmaker finding scholarships and colleges that may meet your needs and interests. It is a commercial site that makes its money from the colleges and services that get marketed to you based on your information.
