Nothing is more central to the enterprise of intercollegiate athletics than the commitment to amateurism.

The very broad definition of an amateur athlete is someone who competes in sports for personal satisfaction and not for monetary gain. In order to be eligible to play sports in college, you must have amateur status.
A common misconception about amateurs and professionals is that professionals are paid to play sports whereas amateur athletes are not. Amateur athletes often receive some compensation for their efforts. In ancient Greece, for example, victorious athletes in the Olympics were handsomely rewarded for their efforts.
