Counting Days During defined championship or nonchampionship segment, each day counts excluding: Required days off (1 day per week) Official vacation, holiday and final-exam periods when no practice or competition occurs This does not apply to basketball or football. Baseball and softball are not affected by this during their nonchampionship segment.
Counting Days - Example For example: When two days are given off (free of any countable athletically related activities) in one week during a championship or nonchampionship segment, one of the days will still count towards the teams playing season.
Specifically: If Golf provided two days off during either their nonchampionship or championship segment, six of the seven days would still count towards the 144-day maximum.
Official Visits - Reminder Paying for flights A PSA may not be reimbursed by the institution for payment of his or her own flight for an official visit. An institution may purchase a plane ticket for a PSA coming to campus on an official visit. If PSA and his or her parents want to be on the same flight, Jen Burns can take the credit card number of the parents to pay for their flight or the parents can pay from themselves. Please remember that you are only allowed to pay for the PSAs flight.
Official Visits - Reminder Hotel stays on the night prior to the official visit. PSA can stay in a hotel the night before the start of an official visit without starting the visit (under the discretion of compliance) Any in-room entertainment (i.e. purchasing a movie) or room service cannot be paid by the institution In the event that a PSA does purchase those items, they must pay for them and proof of payment must be demonstrated The official visit will have begun if a PSA stays at the Villanova Conference Center Villanova Conference Center is considered on-campus facility
Question? The baseball coaches at Ocean State College are planning their summer recruiting trips. There are a couple of situations where an assistant coach would like to go straight from his recruiting trip to a family vacation site and then on to the next recruiting trip. Is this permissible or does the coach have to return to campus before he can resume off-campus recruiting activities?
Answer The coach does not have to return to campus in order to be replaced as a permissible off-campus recruiter. With the adoption of NCAA Proposal , a coach replaced for purposes of off-campus recruiting activities is not required to return to campus before engaging in additional recruiting activities provided no more than the permissible number of off-campus recruiters in a particular sport engage in recruiting activities each day. (June, July, August only)
