In the following years, The NCPA has had a pivotal role in increasing scholarship limits, extending healthcare benefits, and eliminating the NCAA's 1-year max on athletic scholarships. We have also assisted over a dozen states in adopting laws to allow college athletes to secure representation and earn compensation for use of their name, image, and likeness. However, the NCAA still denies college athletes basic freedoms and protections. The NCPA will continue to push for justice.
Because college athletes deserve equal rights & freedoms
The National College Players Association (NCPA) is a 501c3 nonprofit advocacy association made up of current and former college athletes, and has been leading the college athletes' rights movement since 2001.
The NCPA is pursuing much needed reform including enforced health and safety standards, Title IX enforcement, fair compensation, and the preservation of all sports. Through athlete advocacy campaigns, new laws, lawsuits, and public pressure, the NCPA has been pivotal in bringing forth many essential reforms, including:
- Increase in scholarship money by $3-5K/year
- Laws that guarantee our freedom to receive NIL compensation & have representation
- 4-5 year scholarships
- More transfer freedoms
Our Key Goals
United for Change
The NCPA unites current and former college athletes to bring real change. We empower college athletes by providing critical information and analysis, arranging meetings with lawmakers and government agencies, and by providing assistance to athletes in dealing with deceptive, unfair, and abusive practices on their campus.
NCPA membership is open to current and former college athletes, as well as all those who care about the well-being of college athletes across the इंटरबैंक प्लेयर्स country. Every person that joins our team empowers us to enact change in college sports.
NCAA Says It Has No Duty To Protect College Athletes
High Stakes: Death, Abuse, Fair Pay.
It is not against NCAA rules for a college to kill an athlete in a hazardous workout or for a team doctor to abuse an athlete. In multiple public documents and in hearings, the NCAA claims it has no duty to protect college athletes.
The NCAA also denies us the freedom to secure fair compensation, a freedom afforded to other students and Americans. Too इंटरबैंक प्लेयर्स many of us can be left to pay sports-related medical bills and in some sports, graduation rates hover around 50%.
This must change! We can solve these problems together Join now to protect current and generations of future college athletes.
We are the union that represents the players of the National Football League.इंटरबैंक प्लेयर्स
