NCAA College Guide cover

The NCAA publishes an annual Guide for the College-Bound Student Athlete. The download is available on the NCAA website and on the counseling website.

This guide describes NCAA regulations about playing sports in college including: contacting coaches, recruiting and letters of intent.

You may search for colleges that support Division I, II and III programs on the NCAA website. Narrow your search by geographically by conference. Serious athletic evaluation of a college team can be made by noting the placement in conference competition and standing, as well as potential position openings and seniority by examining the roster.

FHS subscribes to a national directory of college coaches. Consult the College & Career Center for further information.
