This feature is an ongoing project. Coaches and parents are encouraged to send information to Wisconsin Track Online so that we can share the news about an athletes plans for their future college experience.
Most colleges that offer NCAA Division I and II athletic scholarships use the NLI. Ivy League institutions and the service academies (Army, Navy, etc.) participate in Division I athletics but offer no athletic scholarships. No Division III schools, NAIA schools, junior colleges or preparatory schools are members of the NLI Program. However, many NAIA institutions and junior colleges do use a Letter of Intent, implemented either by the national association, their individual conferences, or even individual schools. When athletes announce that they will attend a Division III or NAIA school for athletics Wisconsin Track Online would also like to include that information in the Seniors Announce Plans feature. Send information.
