The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a non-profit association that regulates athletes of 1,281 institutions, conferences, organizations, and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. It is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana.
To be eligible to play sports at a Division 1 and Division 2 college or university, it is required that you register with the NCAA. Division 3 colleges and universities do not require you to be registered with NCAA. However, if there is a remote possibility that you will be playing D1 or D2 sports at a college or university, please register with the NCAA.
For more information and to be sure you are on track with NCAA requirements, please see your high school counselor.
