  +    Fullerton Rangers has partnered with College Fit Finder for our High School age groups in an effort to further assist our players in connecting them to the collegiate level.

As we strive to engage players, parents, and our own staff in the recruiting process, the club is providing this robust tool to EVERY High School age player/family.

The College Fit Finder provides our players with a competitive advantage over a typical student-athlete navigating the recruiting process. This comprehensive system allows for individuals to take ownership of their future by equipping them with tools necessary to find a home at the college level. As a club, we are committed to not only player development, but truly being a catalyst in helping our players fulfill their dreams of playing collegiate athletics and accessing higher education. The College Fit Finder will provide uniformity to the club's recruiting efforts and will allow for our coaching staff to take a much more personal approach in helping our athletes throughout the process.

We look forward to facilitating the recruiting efforts of every family looking to play at the next level.

Important Academic Information for High School Age Players

October 20, 2015
Coaches:
 
As we kick off a new academic year, it is an appropriate time to remind you of the changes in NCAA Division I initial-eligibility academic standards effective for the class of 2016. Originally adopted in October 2011, the new standards were developed based on a substantial review of national data and later revised in response to feedback from a number of stakeholders.
 
Specifically, the new Division I standards increase the minimum required high school core grade point average from 2.00 to 2.30. This increase is based on research showing that student-athletes with high school GPAs below 2.30 are at substantial risk for academic difficulties in college. The new standards also require prospective Division I student-athletes to pass ten NCAA-approved core courses (seven in English, math or natural/physical sciences) before the start of their seventh high school semester. This standard was designed to discourage the educationally-inappropriate practice of completing high numbers of credits during a single academic year or semester in order to meet NCAA initial-eligibility requirements. The new requirements also introduce a separate academic redshirt standard which, if met, allows for students to receive an athletics scholarship and practice with their team even though they may not compete during their first year on campus.
 
Recent survey data indicates almost 90 percent of high school administrators have a working knowledge of the new standards. These new standards will help ensure college-bound student-athletes are prepared for the academic rigors of college and provide a mechanism (academic redshirt year) to successfully transition those who need additional help. Please help us by continuing to get the word out by sharing these resources within your networks so all college-bound student-athletes have the opportunity to participate in and benefit from a collegiate athletic experience.
We appreciate all you do to help your students succeed on the field and in the classroom.
 
Have a great year!
