NCAA is Increasing Difficulty


Every year large amounts of students are ineligible to play collegiate athletics. The NCAA is increasing the difficulty for students to be qualified to compete in collegiate athletics. Many students are unaware of these changes and believe that their athletic performance is enough for them to make it. High School is a pivotal moment for young people and without substantial guidance many student athletes fall through the cracks. Far too many talented high school athletes opportunities are cut short because they do not receive the guidance necessary to successfully participate in collegiate academics. The Next Level Foundation alleviates this burden for high school athletes by working with them starting their freshman year to make sure that they’re taking the correct core classes in sequential order and maintaining a GPA above 2.5. Through this preparatory development students are more prepared for the rigor of college. Therefore, improving their overall college experience.
