NCAA to make sure seniors still eligible for Season 96

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) formalized the termination of the rest of Season 95 on Thursday afternoon.

With this, indoor volleyball, football, lawn tennis, soft tennis, track and field, under-15 basketball, and beach volleyball, as well as the cheerleading competition, will no longer be played out.

The Season 94 winners of all these events will carry over the title of defending champions come Season 96, while there will be no general champions this season.

But what about the student-athletes competing in what was supposed to be their final year?

Well, according to Season 95 chairman Peter Cayco of Arellano University, they will still be eligible for next season which will be hosted by Colegio de San Juan de Letran.

“If it’s your final year, you still have one more year to play. Pero that is for those who have not completed their event,” Cayco said.

This means that graduating student-athletes from basketball, chess, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, badminton, and demo sport 3×3 will remain at status quo.

Moreover, this will the exemption will only be limited in the seniors’ division.

The student-athlete must not be over the age of 25 come Season 96 and must not have finished his college degree to be eligible, though.

“If you are still within the age range, you can still play your final year.”
