With Honest Game, We Are A Ship With A Rudder.

“If we would have had some way of discovering that after their freshman year that these students were just a little bit off course, just think of how much easier it would have been to help them get back on that path toward academic success and achievement, not just to be eligible but to fulfill their potential. Now, thanks to Honest Game, we have that ability."

Our team includes former high school counselors, athletic directors, college athletics administrators, coaches, parents, and NCAA board members – all available to help. Our webinar library will provide hours of expert educational content for your coaches, counselors and students!

All Access Pass To Eligibility Compliance

High schools rarely have access to a compliance department or eligibility support. In fact many colleges are also lacking in compliance support. Yet high schools are tasked with ensuring their students are on track for academic compliance for college sports. As a result, almost 1 million student-athletes are academically ineligible every year.

Automate Complex Operations

Completing a school’s registration process with the NCAA requires a great deal of administrative time – at least 40 hours for the initial application. And providing assistance to students choosing to apply for eligibility requires substantial amounts of counselor time. Honest Game’s technology relieves the labor-intensive burden of academic compliance for college sports and allows educators and administrators to spend more time developing programs and potential.

Your Compliance Plan

In addition to custom academic eligibility tracking for every student enrolled in a sport, Honest Game also provides NCAA registration support for high schools with no accredited NCAA courses and regular maintenance for others to ensure that their high school courses are aligned with the NCAA Eligibility Center Portal.

Athletic compliance simply means that individuals in a sports league must adhere to certain requirements and expectations if they wish to participate. In the case of the NCAA and NAIA, there are many academic requirements that must be met and upheld for athletes to remain eligible. Athletic compliance for these organizations consists of meeting core course GPA requirements, taking the necessary number of credits, etc.
Honest Game is a first-to-market software as a service (SaaS) platform for high school staff, club sports, parents/guardians, and student athletes to track the complex NCAA and NAIA academic eligibility requirements to play college sports. Through the use of different software and partnerships, we have created a centralized hub for students looking to participate in college athletics.
Honest Game’s CARE® (College Athletic Report on Eligibility®) provides a step-by-step academic roadmap to college access, including strategic guidance and short-term goals that align every student-athlete’s passion for sport with their motivation for academic success.
Honest Game is an access tool designed to support all student athletes, not merely the student athletes who hope to play in college. Honest Game’s short-term strategic guidance drives participation in sport and student learning outcomes (SLOs), generating a variety of college access opportunities for all high school student-athletes (i.e., academic scholarships, recruited walk-on offers, and admission to highly academic colleges).
The NCAA Eligibility Center is a clearinghouse. All student-athletes must be academically cleared by the NCAA to be able to play at an NCAA-sanctioned college/university. Honest Game is not a clearinghouse, but rather a guide to ensure all student-athletes have a step-by-step roadmap to navigate the complex eligibility requirements and be cleared to play college sports.
