Rules for Bowsherville University Walk-ons


INFORMATIONAL MEETING – Wednesday – August 29 – 11:00 – Paul Kenzuli Complex

As I travel around to many college camps during the summer, I try to pick up interesting reading. I picked up a “walk-on” policy at one of the schools.

Bring pencil/pen to complete the paperwork.

Meeting will start promptly at 11:00 AM.

Tryouts for those invited will take place on Wednesday, August 29 at the Paul Kenzuli complex. Any further questions contact Coach Scott Washburn by email at ——–

  1. You must be enrolled as a full-time student at Bowsherville University (12+ credit hours). You will need to carry above a 2.75 GPA and meet the progress towards a degree percentage set by your academic program.
  2. You must provide a complete copy of all college and high school transcripts.
  3. You must have proof of an athletic physical within the past 6 months (after March 1, 2018). There must be official documentation from a physician clearing you for football participation.
  4. You must present proof of current health insurance coverage. Please have a copy of your insurance card (front and back of insurance card) with you at the meeting.
  5. You must be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Please check your account at www.ncaaeligibilitycenter.org.  to ensure you have Division 1 Amateur Qualifier status. You will be asked to provide your NCAA ID # at the meeting.
  6. You must be in strong physical condition. There will be a conditioning test within one week of the meeting.


If you are invited to join the team after tryouts, you cannot have classes schedules Monday-Friday before 11:00 AM, because they will conflict with practice.

There are no guarantees, as we select walk-ons on a need basis only. However, as long as you meet all of the above requirements, you will have the opportunity to try-out.

Any walk-ons added to the roster are on a trial basis only and are subject to academic review weekly.

PLEASE note – Walk-on status is totally different than  preferred walk-ons, who have been practicing since the first day of practice.
