One of the hardest pills to swallow in the recruiting journey is that you may not get a Full Ride scholarship to play your sport. The pill may not be because you are not a great player, but it may be because of all the rules and regulations by the college athletics governing bodies, the conferences or the schools themselves. This episode is Part 1 of 2 that discusses how many athletic Full Ride scholarships are even available and what alternatives you have to get a scholarship. Hear how the NCAA, the NAIA and NJCAA impact your quest to play your sport and how the different levels within each one will influence your decision. If you will wade through a bunch of information with me, your picture of your future will be made a little easier.
This episode covers NCAA Division I and Division II options and then next week will cover NCAA III, NAIA and JUCO options. So let’s dive in and learn about scholarship definition and numbers.
