Athletics & NCAA Information

 

Athletics

The Career and Technical High School does not offer athletics or sports activities. Shared time students are eligible to participate in sports at their sending school. Full time students are also eligible to participate in sports at their resident district high school. Transportation to sports activities is not provided and is the responsibility of the student and parent.

Many of the core courses at The Career and Technical High School are approved by the NCAA.

The Salem County Career and Technical High School is a standing member of the NJSIAA. Listed below are NJSIAA rules and regulations pertaining to vocational schools.

  • CL 1    A high school student is a regularly enrolled student as defined by the Department of Education.
  • CL 2    Shared-Time – When a student is carried on the Official Register and attends some classes at a school, but also attends additional classes at another school, he/she is eligible for interscholastic athletics at the school where he/she is carried on the Official Register.  If a student is carried on both Official Registers, the student may choose the school at which he/she wishes to participate in all sports on a full-year basis.
  • CL 3    Full-Time – If a Vocational/Technical High School does not offer the particular sport in which one of its full-time students desires to participate, that student may participate in that sport at his/her sending school upon agreement of both Principals, regardless of the number of sports programs offered at the Vocational/Technical High School.
  • CL 4    When a student elects to transfer to or from a Vocational/Technical High School to or from the district school where the student resides the student is eligible immediately provided such assignment is by the Board of Education of the district where the student resides and the student satisfies all other eligibility regulations.

NCAA Eligibility Center

The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all college-bound  student-athletes who wish to compete in NCAA Division I or II athletics. By accessing the NCAA  Eligibility Center’s resource page on its website at www.eligibilitycenter.org, clicking on  “Resources” and then selecting the type of student you are. You can then navigate through the  resources to find helpful information.

Freshmen and Sophomores

  • Start planning now!
  • Work hard to get the best grades possible.
  • Take classes that match your high school’s list of NCAA courses. (Search Salem County VOTECH, CEEB Code 311643) The NCAA Eligibility Center will use only approved core courses to certify your initial eligibility.
  • You can access and print your high school’s list of NCAA courses at www.eligibilitycenter.org. Click the NCAA College- Bound Student-Athlete link to enter and then navigate to the “Resources” tab and select “U.S. Students” where you will find the link for the list of NCAA courses.
  • If you fall behind, use summer school sessions before graduation to catch up.

Juniors

  • At the beginning of your junior year, complete your online registration at www.eligibilitycenter.org.
  • Register to take the ACT, SAT or both and use the NCAA Eligibility Center code “9999” as a  score recipient. Doing this sends your official score directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
  • Double check to make sure the courses you have taken match your school’s list of NCAA  courses.
  • Ask your high school counselor to send an official transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center after completing your junior year. If you have attended more than one high school, the NCAA Eligibility Center will need official transcripts from all high schools attended. (The NCAA Eligibility Center does NOT accept faxed transcripts or test scores.)
  • Before registering for classes for your senior year, check with your high school counselor to determine the amount of core courses that you need to complete your senior year.

Seniors

  • Take the ACT and/or SAT again, if necessary. The NCAA Eligibility Center will use the best  scores from each section of the ACT or SAT to determine your best cumulative score.
  • Continue to take college-prep courses.
  • Check the courses you have taken to match your school’s list of NCAA courses. • Review your amateurism responses and request final amateurism certification on or after April 1 (for fall enrollees) or October 1 (for spring enrollees).
  • Continue to work hard to get the best grades possible.
  • Graduate on time (in eight academic semesters).
  • After graduation, ask your high school counselor to send your final transcript to the NCAA  Eligibility Center with proof of graduation.
