11/05/07 - Tip of the Week - NCAA Eligibility Center Information

Good Morning Seawolves:

While you may still be reading the information contained in last week's Tip (as I know each of you plan to get to shortly), I thought I'd hammer you over the head with even more information.

As you know, the NCAA Clearinghouse is currently making the transition away from Iowa City, Iowa to their new location in Indianapolis, Indiana with a new name - the NCAA Eligibility Center. With that relocation comes new contact information, including new mailing and overnight addresses. While this information may not directly impact you, it may be a good idea to have this on hand in case any of your recruits have any difficulty with registering or getting their required documents to the right place. Their high schools should have this information as well, but we all know how that goes sometimes.

Also, the web address has not changed - prospective student-athletes must still register on-line at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net

Below is the general contact information for the new NCAA Eligibility Center:
