Am I using a “season of eligibility” if I play on the Junior Varsity Team?

During a recent client consultation, I looked at the athletic website for their college, where I noticed that the college has a Junior Varsity basketball team.

If you or an athlete you know is playing on their college’s junior varsity team – even if they never practice with the varsity or dress in uniform for the varsity games – be aware that the athlete will be using one of their four seasons of eligibility. This is true of four-year college and two-year college programs.
