Defining D1-D2-D3 Scholarships for Women’s Basketball

Good Evening,

I ran across this question from a lot of parents yesterday and wanted to address it. This is a very simplified definition of each division but it contains the important information all parents and athletes want to know.

Division 1

In women’s basketball, division 1 schools have the opportunity to offer a maximum of 15 full ride athletic women’s basketball scholarships per school. Not every school has the budget to offer 15 full ride scholarships at the D1 level.

I know a few low major division 1 schools who only have 8 full ride scholarships to offer because of budgetary reasons. I find that most have somewhere around 12 or 13 full ride scholarships to offer. The amount of scholarships available out of the 15 vary from institution to institution and is usually not public record on the exact number.

The scholarships are a year to year contract and they do not have to be renewed. The NCAA says a player cannot be cut from a team for athletically related reasons, but if you suck on the court at this level you will probably get the boot after 1 year regardless of the circumstance. Just being honest. While basketball is a medium for you to get your education for free, it is also a business for college coaches and their lifeline to feed their family.

Division 2

In women’s basketball, division 2 schools have the opportunity to offer a maximum of 10 full ride athletic women’s basketball scholarships per school. Most schools do not have the budget to offer 10 full ride scholarships at the D2 level.

More importantly, most division 2 schools have very few players on a full ride scholarship. For example, let’s say one of the those full scholarships is worth $20,000 but the school only has 5 full scholarships to offer. In the eyes of the women’s basketball program, they have $100,000 = ($20,000 * 5 full scholarships) to spread among an entire team of 15-18 players typically. How that $100,000 is spread out is at the sole discretion of the head coach of the women’s basketball program.

The amount of outside scholarship money and academic money offered to a student-athlete plays a huge part in making the scholarship money work at the division 2 level. A full ride at the d2 level consist of academic money, athletic money, and outside scholarship money. It is common for a lot of D2 athletes to have low interest rate government loans and outside loans. Which is still not bad because athletes still have anywhere from 50%-90% of school paid for without loan money.

Division 3

In women’s basketball, division 3 schools cannot offer any athletically related scholarships. The amount of money not coming out of pocket depends is all based on academic scholarships and outside scholarships.

But wait, I know you are thinking why would I even entertain a D3 school if they cannot even offer athletic scholarship money. Well the school obviously know this, and they tend to offer higher academic scholarships than Division II schools.

For example, lets say a Division II and Division III school both cost $20,000 to attend. The D2 school offers you $10,000 in athletic scholarship and $2,000 in academic scholarship for a total of $12,000. The D3 school offers you $0 in athletic scholarship money because they cant, but they offer you $19,000 in academic money. You have no outside scholarships. You now must get an $8,000 loan to play D2 basketball or $1,000 loan to play D3 basketball. You see the difference.

Hey Coaches. I hope your holidays are are going well and this is my gift to you. During my 5 years of coaching D1 and D2 ball I gathered as much intel about coaching the game on and off the court as I could get my hands on. I was able to collect over 20,000 organized pages of content on a wide array of topics: Full Playbooks (NBA, WNBA, College) , Skill Development Workouts, Weight Training, Recruiting, Self-Help, Flow & Continuity Offense Breakdowns, Zone & Man to Man Defensive Principles, and etc…

Whether you are looking for more structure in your Dribble Drive / 4 out, 1 In, sharpening or altering your defensive principles, adding more drills to your skill development bag, developing your recruiting strategies: I have information that you will find valuable. Fill out the form and I will send you over whatever you want access too.

5 Twitter Hacks To Immediately Boost Your Recruiting

Use Your Real Name

Put your real name in your Profile. It is very simple to do by tapping the edit profile button. You would be surprised at how many players have names like Mrs. And 1, Mr. Bucket Getter, Yellow Daisy Lover, and etc… By Changing your name your profile is now searchable by coaches.

Place Your Highlight Tape Link In The Website Section

Put a link to your best highlight tape in your bio. You can do this by tapping the Edit Profile function. Notice I said a link to your best highlight tape. Not a link to your Hudl profile, some random recruiting service profile page unless it’s the best recruiting service in the country, Hoop Juice : ) (Still not) or etc… Lead the coach who is searching for you to your best 3 to 5 minute highlight film!!!

Add Your Location

Always tag your location as this will allow others who are the same high school, gym, or travel event you are at search you. It can also increase the chances of college coaches running across your profile. Trust me, having sat through many 100’s of games during the Spring and Summer July live periods while coaching Division 1 & Division 2 basketball, I was not always watching the games…

Who’s In This Photo

Tag college coaches, recruiting services, and other college basketball influencers in your post. These people get direct notifications to their phone and they just might view the video you tag them in.

Open Up Your Direct Messages

Opening up your direct messages allows coaches to to message you without having to wait on you to follow them back to do so. Twitter only allows someone to message you if you are following them with its standard settings. Do this below to get your direct messages open

Settings → Privacy & Safety → Direct Messages → (Cut On) Receive Message Requests

Stop Posting YouTube Links Alone…

Twitter’s algorithm for displaying content likes video content to be placed directly on their platform. Posting a YouTube link is not the most effective way to get your video viewed and on college coaches timelines… There is a statistic I heard a few weeks ago on a Podcast that said only 2% of Content on Twitter is original. The other 98% is copied and pasted from somewhere else or another source. Be in the 2%…

Post The Actual Highlight Tape Video File From Your PC or Device To Twitter

This always results in getting your video more views. When you are scrolling through Twitter you ever noticed how once you get to a post with a video and stop for .5 seconds the video will start playing automatically. Once clicked on the sound will start as well. By directly posting the video file, you essentially increase the chances of your highlight tape getting viewed, shared, and etc. It is a lot easier to ignore a video that takes you out of the Twitter App, into the YouTube app, and has to load up to be seen. We live in real-time society when it comes to digital content…

Crop Your Highlight Tape or Workout Clips Correctly

Twitter gives users the ability to post 2 minutes and 20 seconds of video per post currently. Drag the bars into the areas of the video that best highlight your abilities.

Offered By: ETSU, North Florida, Campbell, Austin Peay, Liberty


” She is a matchup problem. Scores on all three levels. Solid handles, great defender, shot blocker! Sees the court very well. Has incorporated the hard drive to the rack.High IQ kid! Consistent from the 3 ”

The Sleeper Report – October 25, 2019


” Cullinan is a versatile scoring option as a forward. She has size and the footwork to score on the interior. However, she also has the ball skill and range on her jumper to score from the perimeter. She adds in the willingness to be coached and to get better. These attributes make her a player that should maximize her talents in the upcoming years. For her to thrive at the next level she will need to become very efficient with her defensive footwork. There will be times where she may get switched onto quicker perimeter players. Playing with good technique and anticipation will help her become a solid position defender and not get in foul trouble. ”
