Abstract (Summary)

This study was designed to assess the impact of athletic participation eligibility requirements at local high schools and how these requirements aligned with NCAA academic eligibility standards. One athletic conference was examined based on grades, demographics, gender and economic disadvantage. The study was qualitative in nature using an online survey to gain a better perspective on the degree to which high school athletes are being prepared for intercollegiate activities both on and off the field in NCAA Division I and Division II universities. Open-ended interviews were also conducted to gain a deeper understanding of some of the issues. The results may provide school leaders with information to consider when developing programs that are in the best interests of their student athletes.
