College Recruiting Consulting Services The National Junior College Athletic Association NJCAA The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) regulates intercollegiate athletics of community colleges. It is the community college counterpart of the National College Athletic Association (NCAA), which oversees athletics at four-year institutions. The organization's goal is to promote athletics as a valuable component of the educational experience at community colleges. The NJCAA has 525 member colleges participating in 15 men's and 14 women's sports. There are 50 national championships and nine football bowl games. Champion Within

D-I schools may offer full grant in aids which include tuition, fees, room, board, books and course related material. D-II are limited to awarding tuition, fees and books. Division III institutions may provide no athletically related financial assistance. Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services National Junior College Athletic Association However, NJCAA colleges that do not offer athletic aid may choose to participate at the Division I or II level if they so desire. Some JCs offer you the typical college experience of living in a dorm, cheering at

football games, that you would have at a 4 year school. What a junior college can offer is an economical way to attend college for two years then transfer to a 4 year school. The NJCAA does have a letter of intent program to commit athletes to scholarships but even if an athlete has signed with a junior college he/she can still accept a scholarship and attend a four year school. Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services National Junior College Athletic Association The general requirements for prospective NJCAA student-athletes are the following: Students must be a high school graduate, have

received a high school equivalency diploma, or have been certified as having passed a national test such as the General Education Development Test (GED). Non-high school graduates can establish eligibility by completing one term of college work and passing 12 credits with a 1.75 GPA or higher. Students are allowed two seasons of competition in any sport at a NJCAA college, and must be fulltime students while theyre playing those sports.

www.playnaia.or g Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services What is a Walk-On? A walk-on athlete is one that makes the team but does not receive any athletic scholarship; walk-ons are still eligible to receive academic aid though. Athletes can choose to walk on to a program for a variety of reasons. In some cases, coaches already have all of their scholarship money allocated for a students graduation year. Other times, athletes may try to play slightly above their competition level, or they have started the recruiting process too late.

Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services Considering Walking On If you are considering walking on, spend some time researching the program and your prospects of making a particular team. Look at the athletes that are set to graduate and what athletes a program has signed in your class. Contact the coach to get more information about a program and to see what your prospects are of making the team. Just because you walk on to a program does not necessarily mean you just show up for tryouts one day. Walk-ons regularly communicate with coaches before applying to a college. Champion Within

College Recruiting Consulting Services Typical Walk-On Process If you are interested in becoming a member of an athletic team you must contact the coaching staff to determine if spaces are available and the date when a try-out will be conducted. You will need to be: Admitted and attending the college full-time Have a current physical examination Proof of health insurance Since the NJCAA has fewer recruiting guidelines and restrictions, the walk-on process will be less stringent. Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services The Recruiting Process

*SelectCollegeAthlete.com sponsored a survey of 109 current college coaches from around the country to help athletes better understand the recruiting process and how to improve their chances of getting recruited and receiving scholarship offers. Participating coaches were from NCAA Division I, II, III, and the NAIA representing 13 different mens and womens sports. Results above are directly from this survey. Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services Research the Program Visit the website of the programs you are interested in. These sites can provide insight and valuable information about the school, team and staff. Many include the following:

A schedule of games Rosters Statistics Player profiles Coaching staff bio's Photos of the field and facilities Dates of upcoming camps, clinics, and tournaments Staff phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and points of contact Fan information regarding tickets, directions, parking, special events and promotions Champion Within College Recruiting Consulting Services

Research the Program Now that you have familiarized yourself with a particular program its time to take the next step to see if this is the right program for you. Contact the coach and see if there will be any roster openings at your position. Talk to former players to see how they enjoyed their time there as a student-athlete. Talk to current players. Ask them what a typical day is like? How are practices run? What is the coaching style of the head coach, assistants and overall staff?
