Playing College Soccer

 
Parents: 
Does your High School student have aspirations of playing a sport at the NCAA level?
Planning starts now. 

There are NEW NCAA ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Effective August 1st, 2016 DIV I /  August 1st, 2018 DIV II
If your student is wanting to play sports in college at an NCAA school- they need to plan their high school coursework carefully.

BOTH the NCAA Eligibility Criteria AND Washington State Graduation Requirements are changing (Class of 2019 and beyond). 
Here is a link to a quick NCAA reference sheet: http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/eligibility_center/Quick_Reference_Sheet.pdf

KEY things to know:

• NCAA Eligibility is not based on your overall GPA BUT your GPA in the 16 ‘CORE’ Courses.
• Eligibility is different for DIV I and DIV II (see attachment)
• School counselors are available to assist you BUT it is not their job to make sure you are on track for the NCAA Eligibility criteria.

 

If you have any other questions you can make an appointment. with your students' school counselor this fall

Blackhills FC Fit Box College Fit Finder

Blackhills FC is excited to announce our partnership with College Fit Finder for our High School age groups in an effort to further assist our players in connecting them to the collegiate level.

As we strive to engage players, parents, and our own staff in the recruiting process, the club is providing this robust tool to EVERY High School age player/family.

The College Fit Finder provides our players with a competitive advantage over a typical student-athlete navigating the recruiting process. This comprehensive system allows for individuals to take ownership of their future by equipping them with tools necessary to find a home at the college level. As a club, we are committed to not only player development, but truly being a catalyst in helping our players fulfill their dreams of playing collegiate athletics and accessing higher education. The College Fit Finder will provide uniformity to the club's recruiting efforts and will allow for our coaching staff to take a much more personal approach in helping our athletes throughout the process.

 

We look forward to facilitating the recruiting efforts of every family looking to play at the next level.
