    The NCAA (www.ncaa.org/wps/wcm/connect/public/ncaa/resources) allows Division I, II and III athletes to participate in all sports in "officially recognized" state games.  The Rocky Mountain State Games are officially recognized because we are a full member of the National Congress of State Games.  Athletes who have eligibility questions should check with their school athletic administrator or coach. Any athlete with scholastic or collegiate eligibility remaining must comply with rules governing his or her scholastic or collegiate eligibility.
