If you're a basketball player—male or female—with aspirations of playing in college and beyond, then you've come to the right place.
Take a look at Compete, a booklet put together by Marc Isenberg and Rick Rhoads and presented by iHoops. Compete is a comprehensive look at what student-athletes will face as they move past high school basketball.
Among many subjects Compete touches on, the booklet:
- Breaks down NCAA rules in simple terms.
- Shows how the rules directly impact you.
- Points out the dangers of the recruiting process and what you can do to avoid them.
- Breaks down the academic side of recruiting and what you can do to be eligible for a scholarship.
While the NCAA's Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete is heavily referenced in Compete, this booklet is different because it advocates the student-athlete first and foremost, and does so in the simplest wording possible.
So take a look at Compete, and become better-informed about the entire process and, as a result, increase your chances at taking your basketball skills to the next level. Download the entire booklet and use it as a resource to improve your knowledge as you look to take the next step.
