Alumnae Athletes

Many student-athletes elect to pursue their athletic careers in college. This requires a coordinated effort between the athlete, her family and the School.  Student-athletes interested in participating at the collegiate level work with the College Counseling office to assist them in deciding what role athletics should play in the college search, as well as important details about eligibility, recruiting and scholarships. 

Deb Surgi, Director of Athletics, provides information to our student-athletes regarding NCAA eligibility, NCAA Clearinghouse registration, and Division I, II, and III athletic programs. Students may also contact their coaches for further information about specific sports programs, conferences, and levels of competition. 
The NCAA Eligibility Center is designed for the student-athlete and her parents. This site is a resource to help understand the application process and the NCAA. Students interested in competing in NCAA Division I, II, or III athletics must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse. Registration should take place before the student-athlete's junior year. The "Guide for the College-Bound Athlete" is available on the NCAA Clearinghouse website. 

I am forever grateful for the memories and experiences Hockaday rowing and athletics gave me. Both the athletic department and my coach provided me with the resources and expertise I needed to succeed at the junior level, and to continue my athletic career at the University of Washington.  - Teal Cohen '17
