Helping More Players get to the Collegiate Level!
Future Champions Golf is Better Preparing Our Junior Golfers for the Collegiate Level and beyond!
“The Future Champions Golf Tour was created to provide Junior Golfers an opportunity to evaluate every aspect of their game and test each player to see if they have the skills to compete at the collegiate level. The challenges on the FCG Tour will mirror those at the collegiate level. I will be recruiting heavily at these events.”
-Coach Ryan Donovan, Men’s Head Golf Coach, San Diego State University
The Future Champions Golf Tour is gaining national attention and respect. From what I have seen lately, the players coming out of the Future Champions Golf Program are very well prepared to be successful at the next level: college. The Tour Directors have a lot of energy and are really helping these kids learn how to play tournaments. The course set ups for the older age divisions are very similar to what they will see in college. I will be recruiting heavily at these events as well as watching their website carefully.”
– Tim Mickelson, ASU Head Coach

Rules of Recruiting
The following tips about the Division I recruiting process can be found on the NCAA’s website, ncaa.org.
When you start ninth-grade classes, you become a “prospective student-athlete.”
You become a “recruited prospective student-athlete” at a particular college if any coach or representative of the college’s athletics interests (booster or representative) contacts you (or any member of your family) about enrolling and participating in athletics at that college. Activities by coaches or boosters that cause you to become a recruited prospective student-athlete are:
- Providing you with an official visit;
- Placing more than one telephone call to you or any other member of your family; or
- Visiting you or any other member of your family anywhere other than the college campus.
No alumni, boosters or representatives of a college’s athletics interests can be involved in your recruiting.
You (or your family) may not receive any benefit, inducement or arrangement such as cash, clothing, cars, improper expenses, transportation, gifts or loans to encourage you to sign a National Letter of Intent or attend an NCAA college.
Letters from coaches, faculty members and students are not allowed until September 1 at the beginning of your junior year of high school.
Phone calls from faculty members and coaches are not permitted until July 1 after the completion of your junior year. After this, a college coach or faculty member may call you (or your parents/legal guardians) once a week.
You (or your parents) may call a coach at your expense at any time. Coaches may also accept collect calls from you and may use a toll-free number to receive telephone calls from you on or after July 1 after completion of your junior year.
A college coach may contact you in person off the college campus no more than three times on or after July 1 of your junior year. Any face-to-face meeting between a college coach and you or your parents, during which any of you say more than “hello” is a contact. Also, any face-to-face meeting that is prearranged or that occurs at your high school, competition or practice site is a contact, regardless of the conversation.
An evaluation is any off-campus activity used to assess your academic qualifications or athletics ability, including a visit to your high school (during which no contact occurs) or watching you practice or compete at any site. Institutions have seven permissible recruiting opportunities (contacts and evaluations) during the academic year, and not more than three of the seven opportunities may be in-person, off-campus contacts.
Once you sign a National Letter of Intent, you may be evaluated an unlimited number of times by the college with which you have signed.
During your senior year, you can have one expense-paid (official) visit per college. You may receive no more than five such visits. You cannot have an official visit unless you have provided the college your high school academic transcript and a score from a PSAT, an SAT, a PLAN or an ACT taken on a national test date under national testing conditions.
NCAA Eligibility Center
At the beginning of your junior year, you should register with the NCAA Eligibility Center, which is a minimum requirement to participate in Division I and II athletics. For registration materials, contact your high school guidance counselor or call the NCAA at (877) 262-1492.
For questions or more information on NCAA Rules and Recruiting Information, please call (317) 917-6222.
National Letter of Intent
A National Letter of Intent is an agreement signed by the prospective student-athlete, parent or legal guardian and the athletic director. The agreement states that the institution agrees to provide the prospective student-athlete, who is admitted to the institution and is eligible for financial aid under NCAA rules, athletic aid for one academic year in exchange for the prospect’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year.
Also, other institutions agree not to recruit a prospective student-athlete once he/she signs a NLI. The prospective student-athlete will no longer receive recruiting calls and is ensured an athletic scholarship for one academic year once the NLI is signed.
