Athlete Eligibility and Honest Game
The PIAA By-laws are the rules which govern student-athlete interscholastic eligibility.
- PIAA Eligibility Rules (These are in addition to the SGASD and YAIAA rules for eligibility)
If you want to compete in NCAA sports, you need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Plan to register before starting your freshman year of high school (or year nine of secondary school). The information on the NCAA Eligibility Center website will help guide you through the registration process.
All of our Spring Grove Area High School student-athletes and their families have access to an HONEST GAME account.
Honest Game empowers student-athletes and their families with the expertise and confidence needed to navigate NCAA and NAIA academic eligibility. Regardless of a student’s post-secondary pathway, the Honest Game platform provides students with real-time status updates and harnesses a student-athlete’s passion for sports to fuel their motivation for learning.
Starting freshman year, each student will receive an online individualized College Athletic Report on Eligibility (CARE®), which transforms the student-athlete’s transcript into a personal plan, including strategic individualized guidance and short-term goals to achieve and maintain academic eligibility.
