Very few athletes and families fully understand that an financial athletic scholarship is a contract with a number of conditions. We encourage you to read through the information thoroughly, but here are a few details to pay close attention to:
– The offer does not guarantee admission to the program. You must still apply and accept the terms.
– You can lose your scholarship for bad behavior, absences, and violation of team rules.
– A scholarship does not guarantee a varsity position.
– An athletic scholarship is a FULL SEASON CONTRACT!
