Play organized basketball and football in high school. Private clubs and community leagues are also a good option. Let them know that your are interested in playing sports at the collegiate level. Ask them if they prepare athletes for college sports both on and off the field. GET GOOD GRADES -- learn about NCAA Proposition 42 and Proposition 48. For example, Proposition 48 is an NCAA regulation that stipulates minimum high school grades and standardized test scores that student-athletes must meet in order to participate in college athletic competition.

Athletics can be an excellent vehicle for gaining access to higher education. Although the life of a student-athlete is very rewarding, it is also very challenging, demanding, and the competition is stiff for a limited number of available slots. That said, it is not impossible and the most dedicated student-athletes are able to achieve a great deal of success if they are willing to work hard, both in athletics and in life.

Speak to teachers, coaches, and other athletes in your community and school for more guidance and information. Also be open to other options for athletic participation at the collegiate level such as athletic trainers, statisticians, and personal trainers. This will also open your mind to the numerous career opportunities in the field of athletics for college and beyond.

Zach’s Answer

Self-promotion is a great way to get noticed by coaches. Post film to services like Huddl, YouTube, and social media. Work with coaches and trainers to continue to develop. Never shut yourself off to an opportunity from any level of school. Take as many visits to schools as you can and talk to academic advisors because being a college athlete is very time-consuming and you do have to manage your studies and athletic endeavors at the same time. Pick a school, major, and campus you're comfortable with because coaches come and go.
