College Athletics

  • There are two separate college athletic associations. NCAA has 3 division levels. NCAA Div I and Div II can give out athletic scholarship money but Div III cannot give athletic money.
     
    Student athletes must register for each athletic association to meet academic requirements. It is suggested that junior athletes register on the respective websites. There is a fee but this can be waived if you are on the free reduced lunch program at RHS. See Ms. Kampschroeder for details.
     
    In order to play on the college level, you must be eligible!
