At AddedSport we believe that being compliant with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is the only way that we can provide transparent and ethical services to the clients and college coaches we work with. We continue to educate our student-athletes and their families, so they can succeed throughout the recruiting process.
The NCAA is a non-profit organization which regulates athletes of 1,281 institutions, conferences, and individuals. It also organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and helps more than 480,000 college student-athletes who compete annually in college sports.
In August 1973, the current three-division system of Division I, Division II, and Division III was adopted by the NCAA membership in a special convention. Under NCAA rules, Division I and Division II schools can offer scholarships to athletes for playing a sport. Division III schools may not offer any athletic scholarships. Generally, larger schools compete in Division I and smaller schools in II and III.

Before any prospective student-athlete and their family decides to work with AddedSport, they go through a formal evaluation process us, which includes an appraisal using a sophisticated AI-driven engine custom-developed by AddedSport. This allows the student-athletes to determine their own potential and success at the colleges that they are planning to attend. The evaluation is free.
