NCAA / NAIA
In addition to the information and site links provided on the College Bound Athletes page just prior to this one, Olathe South is listing the following specific links to take you directly to the most frequently used information.
NCAA eligibility guidelines change often. It is the responsibility of the student athlete to ensure that they are meeting NCAA/NAIA eligibility requirements. More information about eligibility requirements and registering with the Clearinghouse can also be found in the Olathe Public Schools Program Planning Guide. Even though it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that NCAA/NAIA eligibility requirements are being met, student athletes that plan to play college athletics or are being recruited by colleges for athletics are advised to let their counselor and the Athletic Director know of these intentions.
