NCAA D1 Track and Field

This is the top level of college track and field. The athletes that are competing here are among the best in the world. For many athletes just competing at this level never mind getting a scholarship can be a tremendous accomplishment. It is always good to have a couple D1 schools on your list but if your times or marks don’t match up to the athletes currently on the team you might need to look at the other division levels.

NCAA D2 Track and Field

Many of the athletes at the NCA D2 level have the times or ability to make the team at the D1 level but choose D2 because they can get a better scholarship package and be more competitive. This doesn’t mean the competition level is low, in fact the winning times and marks at D2 are often very close to the D1 times. The biggest difference is the depth of talent. If you are a fringe D1 athlete, you can compete at the D2 level and be much more competitive and probably get a bigger scholarship.

NCAA D3 Track and Field

Without the ability to offer athletic scholarships many people feel that D3 sports and track and field in particular are among the purist forms of competition. Athletes at this level could compete at the D2 level but have chosen D3 usually because the school is a better fit for them. If your times match up with D3 times, take the opportunity to get to know the some of the schools. You can search for NCAA D3 colleges here. You might find the perfect fit for continuing your track and field career while getting your degree.

NAIA Track and Field

For a long time people thought NAIA and D3 schools were the same levels of competition. Over the last few years NAIA track and field has started to show they are much more competitive and actually close to the D2 caliber of athletes. If you are looking for schools in the Mid-West or Southern parts of the US, look at the NAIA level.

IMPORTANT: NAIA Rule Changes. You must now register with the NAIA Clearinghouse.

Junior College Track and Field

The junior college level has a very wide range of talent in track and field. Some athletes are at the Junior College level because they are academically ineligible to be at the D1 level. Other athletes didn’t quite have the times or marks to move straight on to a four year school so they are at a junior college working to improve and move on after a couple years. Scholarships can be hard to find at this level because many programs aren’t fully funded or if they are, they are restricted in how they can use their scholarships. You will need to check with each program and coach to see what opportunities are available.

Track-and-Field History

Attending a college track-and-field summer camp could be the best recruiting move you can make.
