Each conference (NCAA, NAIA, etc.) has their own requirements for admissions. We recommend that you do your homework and find the school that is the best fit for you. A good atmosphere, coaching staff and student body are also important factors to consider when choosing a school.
Most colleges offer camps, open-gym sessions and other events that allow players to meet the coaching staff and showcase their talents. We suggest that you look for upcoming events at each school that you are interested in attending.
All of these schools are located within San Antonio and Austin. That makes it easier for any student-athlete in San Antonio to build relationships with multiple schools and keep their options open.
