You don’t have to wait until March Madness to get a start on basketball scholarships for college. There are hundreds available to basketball players year-round. Though the competition for these athletic scholarships can be very competitive, a lot of the funding is controlled by the NCAA. This means that it’s important to not only keep your skills impressive, but also your GPA. Have your coaches help you contact recruiters from universities, smaller colleges, and private organizations with scholarship funding. Local groups may also have scholarships for basketball players, so don’t miss your shot at free college money.
