Building Men and Women via Athletics

Here a list of suggestions we have compiled for new Rules and / or procedures that we think would improve sports near and far.


baseball2016
MLB: Speed up the game by eliminating mound visits and multiple pitching changes and consider the electronic proposal HBO Real Sports aired Tuesday, September 27, 2017.
NCAA: N/A
High School: schedule games in a cluster (or same location) especially for conference play and monitor scheduling around graduation season where a students doesn’t have to weigh the odds of a State finals contest or participate in graduation ceremony.

 

basketball
NBA: Whenever a play is being reviewed, teams must go to a neutral corner of the floor or even opposite of their bench. Teams can’t receive a fake timeout. Also hire a true third (or fourth official) to speed up replays or questionable calls
NCAA: Get rid of one and done!!! If an athlete is so-called ready to go pro… let them – bye bye! But if you sign a letter of intent, it’s good for three years like football. This way, those that think they are pro ready can go… but those that go to college, you can build a solid program around these students, be in somewhat control of your destiny and job security, and the athletes can polish up on their athletic skills. More to come on this one…
High School: Modify and better manage revenue generated tournaments where big name corporations aren’t making mega dollars off the back of so-called student-athletes who receive nothing but exposure (wink wink).

 

football_icon_small1
NFL: Modify replays… hire a true review official at every game that works hand in hand with television broadcast. This official reviews the same stuff we see on TV, communicates the ruling down to the field all while the fans in the stands see the entire process live on the jumbo-trons…. This will definitely speed up the game and give the fans pure interaction to the game.
NCAA: Modify the scheduling… ALL top 20 (or 26, must be even) teams from the season before are opens up a slot on their schedule that the NCAA owns which in part they (NCAA governing body) makes teams play an out of conference foe so we can try our best to remove the statement “this team is undefeated but they didn’t play anyone…”
High School: Make officials take fitness exams and be of how can we say physical appearance. Too often, officials are not in shape enough to keep up with the movement of today’s game. If a team runs a hurry up and is moving the ball, they should not be penalized by an out-of-shape official who can’t keep up.

High School: monitor scheduling around graduation season where a students doesn’t have to weigh the odds of a State finals contest or participate in graduation ceremony.

Athletic Scholarships Cover What

Student-Athletics Scholarships cover what???

November 7, 2016

In short, Divisions I and II athletics scholarships are awarded in a variety of amounts and categories: Full, Partial, Academic, and a mix.

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Now according to NCAA, full scholarships cover tuition and fees, room, board and course-related books. Most student-athletes who receive athletics scholarships receive an amount covering a portion of these costs. Many student-athletes also benefit from academic scholarships, NCAA financial aid programs such as the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund and need-based aid such as Federal Pell Grants.

Division I schools may provide student-athletes with multiyear scholarships. Additionally, Division I schools may pay for student-athletes to finish their bachelor’s or master’s degrees after they finish playing NCAA sports.

If a school plans to “reduce or not renew” a student-athlete’s aid, the school must notify the student-athlete in writing by July 1 and provide an opportunity to appeal. In most cases, coaches decide who receives a scholarship, the scholarship amount and whether it will be renewed.

Please note this important fact…. “full ride” is NOT automatic! Full-ride scholarships are actually annual contracts, renewable by the institution from year- to- year, not guarantees of four years of financial support based on past accomplishments. One need only survey the college football landscape to see examples of star players who have been kicked out of the athletic program or, worse, out of school to understand the fragility of full-ride scholarships.

While Athletic Full-time Scholarships are High Profile, They Are Exceedingly Rare

It is estimated that over 600,000 high school seniors play head count sports. An even larger number play equivalency sports. About $1 billion in athletic scholarship money is awarded annually to approximately 130,000 student- athletes. However, only about 25,000 scholarships are available for incoming freshmen. The math isn’t promising. Therefore, it may not be wise for a family to rely solely on the possibility of their child being awarded a “full ride” to cover the costs of getting a college education.

There are however some other steps a family can take. One is to investigate the availability of academic and merit scholarships offered by each school. The student should also meet with the dean or administrator at his or her school responsible for assisting those seniors engaged in the process of applying for college. There are also research grants and essay contests for additional educational funding opportunities. Finally, to avoid any potential problems, contact should be made with the school(s) being considered and the athletic associations to which they belong for details about the regulations and requirements they may have regarding eligibility and financial aid.

Student- athletes planning on college should not rely solely on “assurances” that he or she should have no problem receiving a full ride. Managing expectations should be a priority for any family who dares to dream that their son or daughter may be awarded an athletic scholarship.

Are you unsure if your sport offers full-ride scholarships? Do you know what the average scholarship amount is for college athletes in your sport? Leave your questions in the comments section below, and we can answer them right away. We are also available on Facebook, Twitter, and Email!

Concussions in Youth Sport

As a society, we need to answer some very tough questions when it comes to brain trauma and concussions in youth and high school sports. I’m not sure if I agree with this…. maybe it’s time to teach them early what NOT to do vs eliminating it. Pop Warner football eliminates kickoffs in attempt to combat concussions.

How many Official Visits can a student-athlete take

Posted on September 5, 2016. Filed under: Baseball, Basketball, Basketball, Football, NCAA Sports, Softball, Track and Field, Volleyball | Tags: , , |

Is there a limit on the number of Official Visits a student-athlete can take?

August 25, 2016

PrezRo

Here’s everything you need to know about Official Visits:

Funding?

If an institution pays for any part of a visit, it is considered an official visit. Typically the school will pay for travel, housing, meals and some entertainment costs.

•The school is allowed to pay for lodging, transportation, meals, and entertainment. That includes (1) round-trip transportation (rental car or airfare) for the student-athlete between home (or high school) and the campus, (2) you (and your parents) may receive 3 meals per day and (3) complimentary admissions to campus athletics events.
•Official visits cannot be made until the opening day of class senior year, no matter what division. The date will vary depending on your school.
•The NCAA allows 5 visits to D1 and D2 schools combined.
•You may only take ONE official visit per institution, no matter the division.
•Each official visit may be up to 48 hrs.
•The NCAA allows each school (DI, DII, and DIII) to offer official visits, but each school differs in policy and budget.
•Official visits are not allowed during dead periods.
•You are allowed an unlimited number of official visits to NAIA & D3 schools.

Who takes official visits?

Coaches usually offer official visits to their top recruits. You must be invited on an official visit by a coach; you cannot invite yourself on one.

How many official visits can a coach offer?

The number of official visits a college or team can offer depends on their budget each year. Division I schools usually can afford the most official visits, followed by Division II schools. NAIA and Division III colleges usually do not offer paid official visits, even though they are allowed to offer them.

How many official visits am I allowed to take?

Per NCAA rules, you are allowed to take no more than five official visits to Division I and/or Division II schools and you can only take one visit, per school. There is no limit on the number of official visits you can take at the Division III and NAIA levels, but you can only take one visit per school.

When can I take my first official visit?

You may begin to take official visits starting the opening day of classes, in your senior year of high school. You must also be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center before you will be able to start taking official visits.

What does it mean if a coach offers me an official visit?

If a coach offers you an official visit, you are most likely very high on their list of recruits. Official visits are typically reserved for top recruits. If a coach does not offer you an official visit (especially at the Division I or II levels), you are most likely not very high on their recruiting list and you should look into other options.

How do I set up an official visit?

Coaches will usually extend an official visit offer during a phone conversation with you, but you do not have to wait for them to make the first move. It is okay to be upfront with the coach and ask him/her if they plan to offer you an official visit. Tell them that you are in the process of scheduling your official visits and you would like to know so you can plan accordingly. This will also show the coach that you are being seriously recruited at other places.

How do I know if a coach is offering an official visit vs. an unofficial visit?

Usually the coach will specify what type of visit they are offering you. If they don’t specify and they asked you to visit during your senior year, you should always ask them to clarify what type of visit it is.

Are there any common questions a coach may ask during an official visit?

Here are some common questions a coach may ask during your official visit:

What other schools are recruiting you?

Be honest and if possible, list colleges that are comparable to, rivals with, or better than the institution you are visiting. This will make them want to fight for you more!

What colleges will you visit?

Be honest and name any schools you have visited officially or unofficially. If this is the first college you have visited state that you are in the process of scheduling the rest of your visits.

When can you commit?

If you are visiting your number one choice and feel comfortable committing, go for it! If you have other visits pending or feel you need more time, tell the coach you want to take your other official visits, just to make sure you make an educated decision. Ask the coach, “How long does your offer stand for?” and “When do I have to make my decision by?” You can also explain to the coach that you need to discuss the offer with your parents, which can buy you some more time.

Will coaches be evaluating me during a visit?

Yes! Just because you are offered a visit, does not necessarily mean you will receive a scholarship offer or even a spot on the team. The coaching staff already has identified you as a top prospect, but the visit gives them an opportunity to judge your personality, lifestyle and character. Usually, coaches will make an effort to match recruits up with team members who have similar personalities and lifestyles. Be yourself, but remember, coaches are looking for young men and women who will be a positive asset to their university and team and who get along well with others. At some point during or after your visit, the coaches will probably ask your host about you, so always be courteous, positive and respectful.

Is there anything in particular that I should pay attention to while on my visit?

Make it a priority to get a good feel for the college as a whole. You need to evaluate the campus, the students, your prospective teammates and the coaches. Ask yourself, “Is this a place where I can see myself being comfortable and happy, for four years, even if I could not play my sport?”

Will I be offered a scholarship?

Sometimes coaches make offers during a visit, but this is not always the case. If a coach does not bring it up, it is okay to ask if you are being considered for a scholarship or if there are any academic scholarships you should look into.

Are student-athletes allowed to tryout or practice with the team?

As an NCAA rule, Division I and Division III schools do not allow tryouts. On an official or unofficial visit, you may participate in workouts that are not organized or observed by the coaching staff. Typically, the workout will be lead by the team’s captains and they must not be designed to test your athletic ability. Division II and NAIA schools are allowed to conduct one tryout, in the off-season of your sport, during your senior year.

Are there any times when visits are not allowed?

Yes. There are Dead Periods in which it is not permissible to make in-person recruiting contacts or evaluations on or off campus. Dead periods generally fall right before the signing periods.

Remember, coaches need to see how good you are before they’ll bring you on campus for a visit.
