Signing Day Information
Guidelines for NAIA and NCAA Signing Days 2022-2023
In order to best celebrate student-athletes who will be continuing their athletic careers in college, Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School has established guidelines for signing days. We have aligned our celebrations with the official start of the NCAA Division I singing periods, which are coordinated with the National Letter of Intent (NLI) program. The NLI is a binding agreement between the student-athlete and a NCAA Division I or Division II academic institution, which has offered athletic scholarships or financial aid. We also have a Spring date for NCAA Division III student athletes. Student-athletes signing with a NAIA school may opt into the Fall, Winter, or Spring Signing Celebration.
The Athletics Office will share signing day photographs and information with local media. It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to inform the Athletic Office as soon as the NLI or NAIA or Division III commitment is made.
